In three years, Molly-Mae Hague has gone from a little-known lifeguard in Hitchin to a self-made millionaire with an Instagram following of a huge star and matching business deals. But her popularity didn’t come without some controversy.
Mrs. Eva Wiseman in Guardians. Hague’s glowing skin is at least partly thanks to her cosmetics company, Filter, realizing her long-held dream of “revolutionizing the way we do facials,” according to the company. website.
The nickname Margaret Thatcher was coined later. Last month, in a public interview with businessman Steven Bartlett on his podcast Diary of a CEOthe 22 years old reminds listeners that “Beyonce has 24 hours in the day like us,” and that “you can really go in any direction” in your life.
Hague said she had previously been “beaten up a bit” for making similar remarks in the past, with detractors pointing out that raising her was one of relative privilege. “It’s easy for you to say, you didn’t grow up poor, you didn’t grow up with big struggles with money,” she recounts to Bartlett.
“Technically,” said Hague, “what I am saying is true. We do” all have the same 24 hours in a day. “If you want something enough, you can get it, it just depends on how far you want to go.” And Hague says she “will go to any length” and has worked “very hard”.
It wasn’t long before the social network decided to lower Hague down one step on the ladder of success she made on her own. “A thousand fingers pointed at her,” said The Guardian’s Wiseman, and comparisons of Thatcher quickly went viral.
But “no one is really shocked that a 22-year-old former reality star believes people should just choose not to be poor,” the writer said. “After all, this is how influencers work by bringing about the possibility of great happiness through the purchase of a simple product or plan.”
One hawker brand in The Hague is by fashion brand ‘PrettyLittleThing’ (PLT), of which she is the creative director.
Last week, a group of protesters gathered outside the brand’s catwalk show in London, with compare drawing board between The Hague’s seven-figure PLT salary and a garment worker’s salary of £7,280 a year.
A former colleague Love Island star Brett Staniland was among those campaigning outside the show. I said Grazia: “I wasn’t directly trying to attack Molly-Mae… It was never meant to take down women with aspirations.”
Hague’s curse “is that she not only gets paid to be a bikini salesman or a politician, but to become the face of the idea behind it,” Wiseman said. When a brand, product or one of Hague’s affiliates is criticized, “part of the deal is for her to fail”.
And while Hague’s argument for individualism may be “sad and a bit silly”, the influencer is “a product of her generation”. Having grown up in a housing crisis and in an age of stagnant wages, why would she or her colleagues “expect even a support from the government or those in power?”, Wiseman asked.
Wiseman notes that memes can be “fun”, but in the end Hague is just “a girl who stands up to capitalism, asking it to love her”.
News that the influential person’s memoirs, Become Molly-Maewill be released as soon as she reaches the age of “tender” 23 begs the question: “what exactly will she have to say,” asked Chris Stokel-Walker in New Chinese.
She may not be struggling as much as I think; The controversy to date surrounding her relatively short career has certainly produced rich content and it doesn’t seem to be abating.
Just this week, Hague was criticized in the tabloids for hitting an actress, who was dressed as a zombie, with her car windshield wiper.
Influencers and her Love Island boyfriend, boxer Tommy Fury, was participating in a nighttime immersive horror movie experience when Leigh Simpson approached the car and lay across the bonnet.
Simpson was “left out”, as Hague “chuckles” and shares the video with her 6.2 million Instagram followers, Sun reported. It wasn’t long before Hague was in the news again, newspapers and magazines released pictures of her new haircut on the same day.
Hague has “ignored” criticism, said Metro. Talk to New! magazine, the young star said that with the scale of her social media following, “it’s impossible to keep everyone happy. I do my best to be a positive role model and with all those What I say, I put a lot of thought into it.”
