Kylie Jenner wants people to put some respect on her name because she agrees with Forbes that she is self-made.
The reality star was dubbed the “youngest self-made billionaire” thanks to the success of her Kylie Cosmetics empire. She opened up to the German edition of Interview Magazine and says she’s “very proud” of her success. “There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth,” Jenner said in an interview published Thursday.” That is the category that I fall under.”
She did note that her popularity before launching her beauty line helped her out a lot but insists that she didn’t receive any financial support from her famous parents. “[I] am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans.”
“I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15,” Kylie 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.”
“Naturally, in my previous post, I was defensive,” she said, reading her written statement. “That happens when you don’t take the time to really know what’s transpiring and understanding the error of my actions, I have to first acknowledge the rooted issues – which means racially profiling a group of individuals based on their appearance and on top of that publicizing it on a platform.”
She continued explaining that she empathizes with her victims as a Black woman in this country and should’ve been more sensitive considering the current social climate.
“I’m not sure if these particular individuals that were on the plane are aware of my actions by now. Either way, I would love to apologize personally to them first, for my insensitive and ignorant behavior,” the comedian said.
“Sadly, I had no knowledge of the tragedy in New Zealand and so after my video, which doesn’t in any way excuse my behavior. I already know that. Ain’t nothing excuses it. But it opened up my eyes to a matter of ignorance as a habit that usually invokes hate. I refuse to teach spread or be an advocate for hatred. I just want to make people laugh,” she said.
“Bear with me. I’m still learning. And when I say, I’m still learning, I was unaware of Sikhs, as well. A lot of them reached out to me, educated me on who they are and what they stand for and how they help the world in different ways. I didn’t know that. I’m ignorant to a lot of shit.”
Wendy Williams dropped a bombshell during a live taping of her show on Tuesday.
The television host tearfully revealed that she has been living in a sober house due to her past cocaine addiction.
“I have been living in a sober house,” she told the audience through tears. “… You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in the past. I never went to a place to get treatment … there are people in your family, it might be you … I want you to know more of the story.”
Williams explained that she goes to the sober house after work and her day-to-day activities.
“After I go to the Pilates and go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area, I see my brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction and looking for help,” she continued. “They don’t know I’m Wendy. They don’t care I’m Wendy. It’s the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle. It’s been really interesting, this ride.”
She also says that her husband Kevin Hunter was the only person aware of her situation.
“Only Kevin knows about this. Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here,” she shared. “After I finish my appointments … I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to a home that I live in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family. … We talk and read and talk and read and then I get bored with them. Doors locked by 10 p.m., lights out by 10 p.m., so I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you. So that is my truth.”
The news comes after Wendy Williams returned from a two month hiatus which she said was to treat her Graves’ disease.
A woman who accused Nelly of raping her says the police have destroyed her case.
The anonymous British woman’s lawyer blames Essex police for treating her like a suspect instead of a victim, as per TMZ.
The accuser’s attorney blames the police for being threatened by Nelly and his legal team and screwing up their investigation concerning her case that the rapper allegedly jerked off in front of her and tried to get her to perform oral sex following a performance at the Cliffs Pavilion scene in December 2017. The “Hot In Here” rapper has denied the claims.
The lawyer claims law enforcement have tried to acquire the accuser’s cell phone records, showed up to her house unannounced, requested that she completed a follow-up interview, and come to the police station. Additionally, the lawyer alleges that it took authorities a year to interview the rapper.
The lawyer announced that her client will no longer be cooperating with the investigation.
Accordingly, Essex police told TMZ, “We can confirm we have received communication from a solicitor regarding the case and will be reviewing this investigation and engaging with both parties in due course.”
Earlier this year, Nelly requested to get another woman’s lawsuit against him thrown out in US court.
R. Kelly is currently facing 10 counts of sexual abuse and the allegations continue to mount even outside of the courtroom.
Lisa Van Allen, who was allegedly one of the singer’s ex-girlfriends and spoke out on the Surviving R. Kelly documentary, says he confided in her and revealed that he had a sexual relationship with Aaliyah’s mother, Diane Haughton, as well. TMZ reports that Kells denies these claims and Lisa is simply trying to drag his name.
“He actually stayed at their home in Detroit and her mother actually was sexually attracted to him as well,” Van Allen said during an interview with Vlad TV. “And he said when Aaliyah went to sleep, he would go in the living room and him and her would do sexual acts on the couch while Aaliyah was sleeping in the bedroom.”
The Pied Piper is due back in court on March 22nd for the next hearing in his sexual abuse case.
Kodak Black is seemingly getting dragged online for expressing his sexual attraction to Young MA in his recent song, “Pimpin Ain’t Eazy.”
The Dying To Live rapper mentioned M.A more than once on the record.
“I be pullin’ out straps on these f**k niggas/I go Young M.A on these dumb b*****s/Like a dyke man, you n****s can’t f**k with me,” he spits on the chorus. On the second verse he adds, “I’m f****n’ Young M.A, long as she got a coochie/Say she got the strap and the toolie, say she put the crack in her booty.”
The Brooklyn rapper is openly gay and clearly disapproved of the lyrics. When asked about her thoughts of the song by a fan, MA answered, “Y’all keep talking about this Kodak situation. Y’all niggas is weird, bro,” she said. “Come on, obviously the nigga is weird, bro. Obviously, he on some shit, bro.” But Kodak jumped on Instagram Live and dismissed her comments.
“Yo, y’all stop making Young M.A. mad. That’s my dog!” The Florida rapper said. “Don’t do that, baby. We gon’ catch up. I just wanna be the homie. I just wanna be the forever homie in the cut, vibing…whenever you make up your mind up, I’m here. [slurp] I’m talking about bae so cute!”
He continued, “I do a lot of stuff, but I do more good than I do bad and more people love me than hate me,” Kodak says. “I’m talking about, how you a girl but don’t want your pussy penetrated? How? Don’t me mad at me, ’cause I want you, baby. Don’t be mad at me!”
Kodak Black’s controversial comments about Young M.A comes ahead of his trial for sexual assault, which starts next month.
In a since-deleted series of video Jess Hilarious confessed that she felt “threatened” by the presence of four turban-wearing Sikh men boarding the same plane as her.
She was instantly dragged on social media for her ignorant comments and she clapped back saying, “Fuck y’all, I feel how I feel. I felt threatened and that was it. Fuck y’all,” in another deleted post.
Days after 50 Muslim people were murdered because of their religion in a terror attack, @jess_hilarious had 4 Sikh people kicked off a flight because she was “scared.” I am a Sikh. We must denounce this bigotry & racism. We can do better.
“N****s know I’m never fucking racist, but I spotted something and I put it out earlier and we just got evacuated from our plane,” she said, while claiming there was “no reason” given for the evacuation. She later posted a video in which she said she boarded the plane again and the four men were nowhere to be seen. “So how ironic is it that we boarded the same plane and don’t see those people,” she said.
She later seemingly apologized in her Instagram story. “Look y’all I’m not racist and never have I ever been,” she claimed. “We have Muslims in my family however I was totally unaware of the different types of Muslim so yes I admit I’m ignorant to the facts so teach me. I got no one put off the fuckin’ plane… I didn’t even say shit to anyone else on the fuckin’ plane about how I felt! Again I’m sorry to ALL Muslims… deeply sorry! But I am not a racist loves.”
Rah Digga is one avowed female emcee who has managed to maintain a little to none record when it comes to rap beef. In her constant motion of being civil yet standing her ground as a core lyricist, Digga is certainly positioned to recognize the affairs in the world of women in Hip-Hop, especially when it comes to unification. In a recent interview with Vlad TV, the Flipmode Squad first lady confirmed she was making reference to Nicki Minaj in a controversial tweet from 2017.
Back in 2017, in a passionate Twitter discussion that included her top female emcees, she made a statement about there being one female rapper who does not conduct collaborations with other female rappers. While she never said the name of the female rapper she was referring to, many hypothesized she was making reference to Nicki Minaj.
When asked by DJ Vlad about the statement who assumed it was the Beam Me Up Scotty rapper, the Dirty Harriet emcee went on speak on the premise of the statement.
“I just get tired of people asking ‘What’s wrong with all the females? Why the females can’t get along?,’” said Digga. “I hate people constantly asking that question when it’s like, it’s not the females. There is just one particular person that entered the fold and now the female rap genre is up in arms.”
There is no denial about the influence Minaj has had on the forum of female rappers within the past ten years. She is unarguably the biggest femcee of the millennium, with triple platinum albums and gold records, recording breaking achievements reigning from chart entries to streams and music video views, and sold out concerts and ultimate mainstream appeal. Despite her success, both DJ Vlad and Rah Digga highlighted the Queens rapper’s fiasco of collaborating with other female artists and historic beefs including those of Lil’ Kim and Cardi B.
Rah Digga went on to speak on her prime time and how she was being pitted against Lil’ Kim and other female rappers due to her non-hyper sexual approach and anti-ghost writer stance. She acknowledged the various unique lanes in female rap, who the New Jersey native slated “Lauryn Hill, the Nubian goddess,” “Lil’ Kim, the sex kitten,” “Trina, the pit mama from the South,” and herself, “Rah Digga, the direct descendant of MC Lyte,” along with Chi-town’s Shawnna as examples.
“Females were clearly not getting along in my era too. This isn’t something that just started,” she said. “Chicks been not rocking. But, I think at the end of the day there was always still this underlying understanding that even if we don’t fuck with each other, we gonna rock with each other. Cause this is how we keep the genre moving.”
“When Nicki Came along, it was like, why don’t you have the same energy as the rest of us?”
Rah Digga is clearly speaking from an angle of a seasoned emcee and did not hesitate to uphold Nicki Minaj’s influence. “I don’t take nothing from her because she really did, for the most part, revive female rap on the commercial front.”
She went on the suggest Minaj should have used her platform to pull worthy up and coming female rappers under her wing, including Cardi B.
“There’s Dreezy, there’s Dej Loaf. If she was smart, she would’ve scooped Cardi under her wing.”
Rah Digga’s vocal output on the state of women in Hip-Hop is a type of rhetoric that tends to be a taboo outlook for many other female rappers. Earlier in the interview she stated, “When you’re on the main stage, you pull your sisters up.” Will this be a matter Minaj tackles head on any time soon?
Check out Rah Digga’s interview with Vlad TV, below.
