Rihanna has had a lot of hits during her career, but no song is as impressive as the latest chart she just topped. The 34-year-old pop star has become the youngest self-made female billionaire, passing the $1.4 billion mark and climbing to 21 on Forbes’ annual self-made women list.
She also is the wealthiest female musician in the world, even though she’s made hundreds of millions from her cosmetic businesses.
Here’s where the money comes in for Rihanna. She owns 50% of Fenty Beauty, which according to reports, brought in $550 million in 2020.
She also has a 30% stake in Savage X Fenty, her lingerie brand.
Now that she’s cracked the 10-figure club, she wants to continue growing and has no plans to slow down. Here’s a quote she gave the New York Times three years ago.
“I never thought I’d make this much money, so a number is not going to stop me from working.
The money means that I can take care of my family. The money means that I can facilitate the businesses that I want to. I can create jobs for other people.”
The second-youngest self-made female billionaire is also a world-famous icon. Kim Kardashian is 41 years old and now worth a staggering $1.8 billion.
