Rihanna Makes Forbes’ Richest Self-Made Women List for the First Time

Rihanna has made it to the Forbes’ list of the richest self-made women in America for the first time ever.

The 32-year-old entertainer and Fenty Beauty founder made the list at No. 33 with a net worth of $600 million.

The majority of Rihanna’s wealth comes from her music and her Fenty Beauty cosmetic line which she co-owns with luxury group LVMH. She also co-owns the Savage X Fenty lingerie line with investors such as TechStyle Fashion Group, an online fashion company.

In an interview with Vogue, Rihanna spoke about the success of her cosmetic line. She said, “We have this amazing emotional connection with customers who’ve never been able to find their shade of foundation before — women crying at the [makeup] counter — it’s crazy to even think about.”

“The first woman I saw put makeup on her face was a Black woman — my mom — and when I think of my customers, I want everyone to feel like they can find their color, that they are represented as part of this new generation,” she added.

Rihanna joined other female entertainers on this year’s list of the richest women in America, including Beyoncé with a net worth of $420 million, Madonna who has a net worth of $550 million, and Taylor Swift with a net worth of $356 million.
