Alex Cooper Opens up About Building a $60 Million Empire
| LAST UPDATE 08/24/2021
Roughly 3 years ago, Alexandra Cooper was a struggling college student living in a cramped apartment with 2 roommates. Today? Well, we all know where this story ends, don't we? The Call Her Daddy legend has become one of the queens of podcasting, calling for an army of fans and millions in endorsements. "How?" you ask. Keep scrolling.
The Barstool star recently sat down with E! News to talk money moves. And from the sounds of it? Her rise to the top was anything but random. "Everything was calculated. Everything was very well thought out," Cooper confessed of starting the podcast with former bestie, Sofia Franklyn. "The idea that we weren't looking scripted or making anything look like we thought it out too much, that was the plan."
Sure enough, endless "unscripted" episodes later, and the 27-year-old is officially living her best life. But with her newfound fame also comes a newfound sense of responsibilities - after all, she's got millions of daddys tuning in each week. "I'm not just going to say some reckless **** because now knowing not only the amount of people that listen to me, but after gaining through this three years of podcasting, the loyal listeners... actually implement what I'm saying into their daily lives," she confessed.
Whether it's advice on how to escape the friend zone or get over a messy breakup, it's no surprise Cooper's words of wisdom have landed her an entire empire - or should we say, Daddy Gang. But that doesn't mean she's got it all figured out. In fact, she doesn't... "I definitely feel like I'm still learning," she explained. Thankfully, she's got her own gang to lean back on when the cameras aren't rolling. "My brother and my family have been helpful in this."
From living off of unemployment checks to securing $60 million with her upcoming Spotify deal, the Call Her Daddy host's rise to the top is living proof that anything is possible. After all, did any of us really think she and Mr. Sexy Zoom Man were in it for the long haul?
Stay tuned, we've got a feeling Father Cooper's got lots more tricks up her sleeves.
