Yes that’s right, Grace Jones is 70 years old dancing like that on the runway! But, not only is her energy that of a 21 year old, she doesn’t look a day past 50! Kylie Jenner is named youngest self-made billionaire EVER by Forbes.
At 21 years old, Kylie has the greatest net worth amongst the Kardashian/Jenner clan! The title “self-made” has caused controversy on the internet because of her Keeping Up With the Kardashian fame and family riches but regardless, her billionaire status at just 21 is very impressive.
