- Kai Lee Mykels mentions Emma
Westword interviewed Kai Lee for their Diva Watch, about "the passionate, diverse and fascinating performers who light up Denver's drag community." When asked what cultural icon he admires the most and why, he answered:
I absolutely love Bette Midler. One, because I look like her, on her ‘70s album at least. She’s fun and quirky, a funny personality but she’s good at what she does, I really look up to her. Bette is my big one. I also look up to actress Emma Watson, I think she’s gorgeous and trying to do some great things in the world.

- Forbes and Tinder are creating an app for Forbes' "30 Under 30"
The business magazine announced Monday that it's launching a networking app with the support of Tinder that will include a directory, a social media platform to share links and ask questions, and a messaging option.
And yes, the dating-slash-hookup app’s signature swipe right functionality will let users know when someone wants to get drinks...to talk business.
But there’s a catch: the networking app won’t be open to any average Joe. Instead, you’ll need a golden ticket in the form of a spot on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list — the magazine’s annual list of the top influencers in fields like media, venture capital, consumer tech, science, and policy.
And that includes Emma, who was on that list this year in the "Hollywood" category.
The app will formally launch at Forbes 30 Under 30 summit in Philly from Oct. 4 - 7. The Summit, the most influential gathering of Millennials in the world, is expected to bring together more than 2,000 young entrepreneurs and game changers. Last year’s highly successful Under 30 Summit, which featured everyone from 17-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai to Tinder founder Sean Rad to the first-ever public speech by Monica Lewinsky, reached 750 million people through social media.
I hope Emma will be able to go.
