But “self-made billionaire”? That’s what’s disturbing a lot of people.
Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided.

I’m all for celebrating someone’s achievements and don’t begrudge anyone for being wealthy, BUUUUUUT I see why people are irritated. She wasn’t a total nobody who made something out of nothing (or very little). Not that it doesn’t count. She could’ve blown her fortune, I suppose. But the truth is, she got fake lips and capitalized on her garbage sister’s oily butt fame. I’m just saying, I understand the frustration. She came from a famous family. If she was a thin lips “nobody” who turned a cosmetic line into an empire, I’d be more impressed.
calling kylie jenner a ‘self-made billionaire’ is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it.

I’m sorry but you can’t call her self made when she leveraged her families fame into a blossoming business. Good for her but you aren’t self made when you’ve been a millionaire almost your entire life. If no one knew who she was would the makeup line have sold as much as fast?

Self-made???? You’re joking, right?

Step 1: have 300 million of it to start

Here’s a step-by-step guide for Kylie’s success. You know– in case you want to try to follow it. Please replace Step 2 with “Have a famous athletic father who decides he’s a woman.” That’s much more accurate. Kylie’s a Jenner, not a Kardashian.
Step 1) Be born into a wealthy family
Step 2) Have your father get involved in OJ Simpson’s Murder Trial
Step 3) Sister releases a sex tape
Step 4) Collect 100s of 1,000s of dollars for product placement on instagram
Step 5) Free advertising from Forbes, etc
Step 6) Profit

In one pic on Instagram, a commenter said, “She looks like the old Kylie here idk why,” and she replied “I got rid of all my filler.”
We’ll see how long that lasts, I guess.
