“Self-made” is not a word most people would apply to the Kardashians. The siblings were born into wealth and privilege, and in the case of Kendall and Kylie Jenner, they literally grew up on a TV show. So when Forbesnamed Kylie Jenner the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, the internet’s reaction was a big, “Wait, what?” Jenner has repeatedly defended the title, saying that she made all of her money on her own. But now, Kylie Jenner’s comments about having “a lot of help” reaching billionaire status is the admission people online have been waiting for her to give.

In an interview with The New York Times, all of the Kardashian women got together to talk about their money. First of all, LOL they have so much money. Second, this is where the family finally addressed a bunch of the criticism they’ve received lately. Khloé and Kim Kardashian both addressed Jameela Jamil’s criticism of their continued promotion of meal replacement dieting products from companies like Flat Tummy Co. (Their responses were kinda lame.) And Kylie Jenner, when pressed, admitted that the “self-made” title she was given isn’t entirely accurate.

Jenner was named the world’s youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes this past March, all of that money being credited to the success of Kylie Cosmetics. People reacted with a big question mark because it’s clear to most people that Jenner is not self-made. After all, Keeping Up With The Kardashiansstarted when she was 9 years old, quite literally putting her in the public eye for the majority of her life. The success of Kylie Cosmetics is, in part, thanks to the platform she already had, as are all of the sisters’ business ventures. Even Dictionary.com tweeted that Jenner technically isn’t self-made because that word entails not getting any help, which she did have, thanks to her famous momager and family.

Jenner previously defended her title by saying that all of her Kylie Cosmetics money was made on her own, adding that her parents cut her off financially when she was 15 years old.
Jenner told Interview Germany in March, “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 did say in the interview that she was a “special case” thanks to the family she was born into and her large platform of fans, but she still maintained that she was entirely self-made.
“I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15,” she said. “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.”
But when The New York Times pointed out the fact that it was Kris Jenner who took her to get the Kylie Cosmetics name trademarked when she was 15 and came up with the Lip Lit idea, Jenner admitted her privilege makes the self-made title not quite as fitting.
“I can’t say I’ve done it by myself,” Jenner admitted. “If they’re just talking finances, technically, yes, I don’t have any inherited money. But I have had a lot of help and a huge platform.”
Kylie Jenner’s work ethic and business acumen is no joke and undeniable, but, girl… that’s the point everyone’s been making the entire time. Glad you caught up!

Is this necessary when you are already a bonafide billionaire Slaylebrity?

Things just got really awkward between Kylie Jenner and Alex Rodriguez. The makeup mogul and the baseball star were seated at the same table at this year's Met Gala, but Rodriguez seems to have forgotten what they all talked about. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Rodriguez kind of shaded Jenner with some comments he made in passing, and Kylie Jenner's response to Alex Rodriguez saying she bragged about being rich is probably making him feel hella awkward right now.In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Rodriguez talked about his time at the 2019 Met Gala on May 6. He himself was bragging about how great of a table he and Lopez were seated at. "We had a great table," he said, beginning to break down all of the Gala guests he was sitting with. "The black guy from The Wire — Idris Elba, yeah, and his new wife. Some famous singer next to me, I don’t know what her name is. Versace — Donatella." It sounds like A. Rod knows as much about celebrity names as I do baseball. "We had Kylie and Kendall. And we had an Asian gentleman from 'Rich Asians,' the lead," he continued, then adding the shade toward Jenner. "Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick and how rich she is." Oh... OK? Why did he only talk about some things when it came to every other rich person at his table, then when it came to Jenner, he made a comment like that...? Weird, if you ask me.That line made headlines, and those headlines prompted Jenner to respond."Umm no I didn’t," Jenner tweeted in response to a People tweet about A. Rod's comment. "We only spoke about Game of Thrones." Oof... awkward. The Met Gala was on Monday, May 6, which means the episode of Thrones that had aired the night before was Season 8, Episode 4, "The Last of the Starks." With the Battle of Winterfell episode going down the week before that, there was a hell of a lot of Thrones content to talk about that night, but Rodriguez apparently forgot all about that convo.That is, until he responded to Jenner's tweet, seemingly to save some face."OMG that’s right @KylieJenner!!" he tweeted. "It was me talking about you and your makeup line and how much my girls love you. #GOT #respect #alllove." Good save...? Narrator: It was not a good save. People were confused by his response.It's hard to tell who is right in this scenario and who is saving face. I totally buy that Jenner would talk about her success in public (yo, if I were a billionaire, I would too), and I also totally believe that A. Rod would want to shut this story down real quick if Jenner publicly contradicted what he said.Fans of Jenner are convinced she's the one telling the full truth here, though, considering the fact that she rarely calls people out this publicly.Whether A. Rod's version of the story is true or Jenner's is, this is the most awkward tweet exchange I've seen in a long, long time. I mean, you know things are bad when you have to make the clarification that you're #alllove. Yikes.By the way Want to recreate her look?
