Forbes faces backlash for calling Kylie Jenner a ‘self-made’ billionaire

Forbes is the place to go for numbers — but maybe not for words.

Many people are taking issue with the magazine’s definition of ‘self-made’ after it placed Kylie Jenner on its latest cover.

Forbes faces backlash for calling Kylie Jenner a ‘self-made’ billionaire

The publication branded her the ‘cosmetics queen’, declaring on the cover: ‘At 21, she’s set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire. Welcome to the era of extreme fame leverage.’

According to the publication, Kylie – who is set to turn 21 on August 10 – is currently worth an estimated $900million thanks to her cosmetics line.

The Internet immediately lit up with reaction, with even Dictionary.com appearing to throw shade.

On Wednesday it tweeted the definition: ‘Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided.

‘Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman,’ it added, posting a link to the Forbes article.

Self-made or not, once she crosses the $1billion mark, she will unseat Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.

Netflix Has Spent Over $30 billion On Content Since 2014 | Over A Third Of It In The Last Year Alone

Published

Netflix

Netflix investors were less than pleased with the streaming platform’s subscriber growth — the company’s stock-driving metric, given its subscriber-based business model — when it released its Q2 earnings results on Monday.

In the three months ending June 30, Netflix said it added 5.15 million subscribers, bringing the total domestic and international subscriber count to 130.1 million subscribers, which was about a million shy of its targeted 131.2 for the quarter. Its stock responded with a 14% tumble to $344.04 in after-hours trading. The difference in subscribers may seem marginal, but for Netflix — which is unique to traditional networks in that it relies on subscribers’ payments instead of advertising dollars to fund content — growing its monthly payments matters.

As this chart from Statista shows, the streaming platform has spent nearly $30 billion on streaming content since the beginning of 2014, with over a third of that sum being spent in the last 12 months alone. It owes $4.5 billion in content expenses by June 2019 and $3.6 billion towards the end of next year.

Katy Perry Talks Depression, Relationship With OrlandVogue Australia’s Latest Issueo Bloom As She Covers

Katy Perry

Katy Perry shows off her natural hairstyle on the cover of Vogue Australia‘s August 2018 issue.

The 33-year-old singer speaks to the magazine about her relationship with Orlando Bloom, her meeting with Pope Francis, a personal growth program she did and a whole lot more.

Read excerpts below:

On meeting the Pope with boyfriend Orlando Bloom: I don’t want it to be a headline of the story, because it takes away from the purpose. Also, it’s extremely misogynistic. Of course, I love my relationship, but that is one part of me, and I don’t want any part of what I do to be diminished.

On why she did a week-long personal growth program: For years, my friends would go and come back completely rejuvenated, and I wanted to go, too. I was ready to let go of anything that was holding me back from being my ultimate self. I have had bouts of situational depression and my heart was broken last year because, unknowingly, I put so much validity in the reaction of the public, and the public didn’t react in the way I had expected to … which broke my heart.”

On the Pope: I’m such a big fan of Pope Francis. It’s a combination of compassion, humility, sternness, and refusal. He is a rebel – a rebel for Jesus… He is bringing the Church back to humility and connecting with people. He’s very humble and not frivolous.
