Forbes has released it’s a list of the world’s richest female musicians and guess who topped the list? Yes, it’s Rihanna. The singer with a huge fan base worldwide managed to own the title of the world’s richest female musician with the net worth of $600 million. Last year, the female singer to top the list was Beyonce but right now she is slipped to number fourth position with the net worth of $400 million.
The 31-year-old singer Rihanna has successfully achieved the title beating her contemporaries Beyonce and Madonna. The number two position on the list is possessed by Madonna with the net worth of $570 million. And in the third position, we have Celine Dion with the net worth of $450. After it comes Beyonce with $400 million net worth.
Well, Rihanna is not only a singer but also a businesswoman. She is a successful makeup entrepreneur, lingerie designer and also runs a fashion brand. The singer plus entrepreneur has launched Fenty Beauty with various makeup products and also a range of lingerie.
She launched Fenty Beauty along with a French luxury giant, LVMH in September 2017 at an LVMH owned Sephora store. The business proved to be a huge success in just a few weeks of its opening. It managed to earn $100 million in just a few weeks and became a giant hit.
The reason behind its huge success is that the range of products doesn’t stick to the societal norms. It has almost 40 shades of foundation and whether you are fair or dark, the makeup range is for everyone and it doesn’t force you to stick to the stereotype and let you be yourself.
After being titled as the world’s richest female musician by Forbes, she said, “I never thought I’d make this much money, so a number is not going to stop me from working. Money is happening along the way, but I’m working out of what I love to do, what I’m passionate about.”
