At the young age of 21, Kylie is ruling both Instagram and the cosmetic market and there is nobody even close to her in the race of fame.
Recently, Kylie replaced Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest billionaire on the list made by Forbes.
There were many people who congratulated her on achieving the landmark, but the majority of the ‘keyboard-geniuses’ criticized her. She’s been used to it, she’s a Kardashian after all, but in her recent interview she took a dig at those who were criticizing her without any logic.
“There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth. That is the category that I fall under.” She said.
She admitted the fact that she comes from a very famous family, and yes their names helped her, but that doesn’t mean that everything she has earned is because of her family. She even revealed that she haven’t taken a dime from her parents after the age of 15.
“I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans,” she says. “I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that.”
She also admitted that she never thought that her cosmetic brand will gather this success and she would end up becoming the youngest billionaire ever.
“I never thought that this could happen. I believed in Kylie Cosmetics but I didn’t even know what I was getting myself into,” she says. “It feels amazing, it’s wild, and being the youngest ever to do it is a blessing. I now want to focus on giving back to people and doing things that I’m passionate about.”
