Rihanna Named a Billionaire 'richest female musician' by Forbes

Work, work, work, work, work, work! According to Forbes, Rihanna is officially a billionaire. The announcement made on Wednesday makes her the ‘richest female musician.’

The singer, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, joins Oprah Winfrey as one of the wealthiest entertainers in the world with a net worth of 1.7 billion, with most of it coming from her cosmetic brand Fenty Beauty, which she launched in 2017. The brand inclusion of 40 shades of foundation was unmatched at the time and inspired other brands to jump on board with broadening the color ranges for “complexion products.”

Forbes estimates $1.4 billion of her worth comes from Fenty Beauty and $270 million coming from her lingerie brand Savage X Fenty — the business magazine said the rest of the $1.7 billion is sprinkled in from the Bajan star’s music and acting career.

Fenty Beauty “covers everything under the sun of makeup, from brushes and blushes to lipsticks.”

Nice “work,” Rhianna!
