Rihanna Named The Richest Female Musician in the World
I think we would all stand under her umbrella of incredible success. Come on Mr. DJ Mr. DJ Mr. DJ Mr. DJ!! OKAY, here’s how she became a true icon.
Rihanna has banked a $600 million fortune after launching a few profoundly popular businesses in makeup and lingerie, according to Forbes. The singer's Fenty Beauty makeup line launched in 2017 at Sephora and reportedly made $100 million in sales in its first few weeks, in part due to its focus on diversity.
She is also the mastermind of the Savage X Fenty lingerie line and is in line to be the first woman to create an original brand at LVMH, a French luxury fashion house. The Barbadian singer would be the first woman to head up a line with the company, which owns the famous Louis Vuitton brand.
Rihanna told The New York Times in an interview published last month that the motivation for expanding into different creative outlets was happiness, and that money didn't drive her work.
"Money is happening along the way, but I’m working out of what I love to do, what I’m passionate about," Rihanna told the newspaper. "Work will change when my life changes in the future but an amount of money is not going to stop that."
And Rihanna isn't the first artist making history by going beyond the studio.
Jay-Z was recently named the first hip-hop artist to amass a billion-dollar fortune, according to Forbes.
