>> Read more trending news 

The former talk show host and founder of OWN network earned a spot on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, which lists the world’s 500 richest people.

Winfrey, 64, ranked 494 on the list, making her the first black female billionaire ever featured in the round-up. 

Winfrey’s fortune hit $4 billion this week thanks to her stake in Weight Watchers International Inc., according to Bloomberg. The company’s share has more than doubled since she partnered with the brand in 2015. 

Her ownership of the “Oprah Winfrey Show,” her cable network OWN and recent partnership with Apple have also contributed to her fortune. 

Winfrey is one of 65 women and one of six female entrepreneurs on the list. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, ranks No. 1.

Chris Pratt shares 9 rules for life in MTV Movie & TV Awards speech

As actor Chris Pratt accepted the Generation Award at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards on Monday, he had some words of wisdom to share with viewers.

"This being the Generation Award, I’m going to cut to the chase and I am going to speak to you, the next generation. I accept the responsibility as your elder. So, listen up," he said.

Read Pratt’s nine rules below.

  1. "Breathe. If you don’t, you will suffocate."
  2. "You have a soul. Be careful with it."
  3. "Don’t be a turd. If you are strong, be a protector. If you are smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, so do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that."
  4. "When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little piece of hamburger and they won't even know they're eating medicine."
  5. "It doesn't matter what it is. Earn it. A good deed. Reach out to someone in pain. Be of service. It feels good and it's good for your soul."
  6. "God is real. God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe that, I do."
  7. "If you have to poop at a party, but you're embarrassed because you're going to stink up the bathroom, just do what I do. Lock the door, sit down, get all of the pee out first. And then, once all the pee is done, poop, flush, boom! You minimize the amount of time that the poop's touching the air," he said -- and then he continued, getting even more graphic. "Because if you poop first, it takes you longer to pee and then you're peeing on top of it, stirring up the poop particles, create a cloud, goes out, then everyone at the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me, it's science."
  8. "Learn to pray. It's easy, and it is so good for your soul."
  9. "Nobody is perfect. People will tell you that you are perfect just the way that you are -- you are not! You are imperfect. You always will be, but there is a powerful force that designed you that way, and if you are willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift. Like the freedom that we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else's blood. Do not forget it. Don't take that for granted."

Pratt accepted the award from his former "Parks and Recreation" costar Aubrey Plaza and current "Jurassic World" costar Bryce Dallas Howard. He gave a special shout-out to his family, friends and fans before receiving a standing ovation from the room.

Past winners of the MTV Generation Award include Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Wahlberg, Sandra Bullock, Johnny Depp, Ben Stiller, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.

Actress Amandla Stenberg comes out as gay in Wonderland magazine interview

Amandla Stenberg, an actress who gained fame as the ill-fated Rue in “The Hunger Games,” has come out as gay.

Known as a vocal supporter of social justice issues from the erasure of non-normative sexualities to the Black Lives Matter movement, Stenberg has previously said she identified herself as bisexual in public. She also said that she would also use the word pansexual to describe herself, meaning she is not limited in who she likes in terms of biological sex, gender or gender identity. At the time, she said identifying as bisexual was easier for those unfamiliar with pansexuality to understand.

In a conversation with musician King Princess for Wonderland magazine, Amandla said she is out and proud.

“So happy to say the words Yep, I’m Gay in official print,” Stenberg wrote on Instagram Sunday.

“Let’s get real right out of the gate,” King Princess said. “I don’t know if the people in the back heard you, are you gay?”

“*Insert Ellen DeGeneres’ TIME Magazine cover squat and wide smile* ‘Yep, I’m Gay,’” Stenberg replies.

Stenberg also discusses the emotional moments she’s had when she realized what her sexuality was.

“I was so overcome with this profound sense of relief when I realised that I’m gay – not bi, not pan, but gay – with a romantic love for women,” she said. “All of the things that felt so internally contrary to my truest self were rectified as I unravelled a long web of denial and self -deprivation. Like, ‘Oh, maybe there’s a reason why I kissed my best friends and felt ashamed growing up.’...

“I was flooded with a sense of calm and peace because everything that I struggled with or felt discomfort around finally made sense to me, and once those floodgates opened and years of pent up pain and shame were released, I found the freedom to live my best life waiting for me just underneath.”
