Rihanna Becomes the World’s Richest Female Musician!

Rihanna made history in 2019 when she launched her luxury fashion line with LVMH. While the singer and mogul has been topping music charts for over a decade, it’s Rihanna’s beauty and style endeavors that have propelled her to new heights — Forbes just named her the world’s richest female musician.

The 31-year-old superstar’s Fenty Beauty makeup brand and her LVMH clothing partnership helped her rake in an estimated $600 million, according to the magazine.

Among the list of entertainers on Forbes’ list of America’s richest, self-made women are Oprah (no surprise there!), who has amassed a fortune of $2.6 billion. Kylie Jenner is valued at $1 billion, thanks to her own cosmetics line, Madonna’s at $570 million, Céline Dion has $450 million, and both Beyoncé and Barbra Streisand’s wealth comes to $400 million. Included in the top 80 women on the list are notable names like Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon and Serena Williams.

Rihanna spoke with Time about the impact of her lucrative Fenty line in 2017, saying, “I never could have anticipated the emotional connection that women are having with the products and the brand as a whole. Some are finding their shade of foundation for the first time, getting emotional at the counter. That’s something I will never get over.”

Yesterday, Forbes reported that Jay-Z is worth around $1 billion dollars — becoming the first hip-hop artist to become a billionaire.

Is Rihanna next?!
