Name: Johnny Cyrus
Fandom: Kylie Jenner
Location: Milwaukee, Wi.
Kylie Jenner, daughter to Caitlyn and Kris and sister to Kendall (of Pepsi fame), has arguably become a brand unto herself, launching eponymous fashion, makeup and accessory lines that sell out within hours of their release. While she's garnered a love-to-hate reaction from some, Jenner has also attracted countless fans, including 19-year-old Johnny Cyrus.
The Milwaukee native is the same age as the celebrity, which has created sort of a bond between them—at least in his mind. "Me and Kylie grew up together cause we're the same age," he said. "It's just sooo cool watching someone you've followed before they were super well-known taking over the world!!!"
For five years, Cyrus has remained loyal to Jenner, snatching up branded products, inking himself eight times with Kylie-themed tattoos and even meeting the celebrity on multiple occasions.
Here is his story.
Why do you love Kylie Jenner?
I love how confident Kylie is with herself. There are some who hate her, but stop being jealous and focus on your own life, you know?
When did you first fall for Kylie?
My first encounter was when she started making Keeks, which is an app like Vine that's no longer available. And they were so funny, I just immediately fell in love! I loved when she included her friends in them!
What's the craziest thing you've done for Kylie?
Probably my tattoos! I have a total of eight Kylie Jenner tattoos. My personal favorite is the Kyshadow logo! I have only one non-Kylie-related tattoo, and it's the date my grandma passed away. As of RIGHT NOW, I don't have any more Kylie tattoos planned.
My first experience was just getting the King K logo tattooed. I was VERY nervous. I went to a family friend cause she was known for her tattoos. My tattoo artist thought the idea was super cool.
My friends and family are VERY supportive of them. They love all of the designs. A couple of my friends were a little worried about when I added Kylie's signature to my arm because it is, in fact, a name, and name tattoos usually don't work out, I guess. But in this case, it's a signature, not just someone's name.
What's your Kylie collection look like?
I have every single product that Kylie Cosmetics has ever created. I have TONS of custom Kylie Jenner T-shirts that I've had made for me for events. I spent probably over $10,000, which includes my flights and hotel for traveling.
Have you met friends through your Kylie Jenner fandom?
We call ourselves Kylie's Kings. I have multiple Kylie fans that I've bonded with. They're pretty much all the fan pages on Insta that I follow!!!
Have you ever met Kylie in person?
I've met Kylie on multiple occasions. The experience was LIFE CHANGING!!!! Super cute, and she's super sweet. Me and Kylie talk almost every day over direct message, and I have her Insta notifications on, so that if she shares a photo I can see it right away.
What is your favorite piece of Kylie swag?
I love her clothing line for The Kylie Shop.
What other products should Kylie make?
Perfumes would be really dope!!
What's the nicest thing Kylie has ever done for you?
She gave me a shopping spree at her NYC pop-up shop!
If you could change one thing about Kylie, what would it be?
Nothing - she's fine the way she is!
