Rihanna Becomes World’s Richest Female Musician, Internet Reacts

Rihanna’s wealth has surpassed the likes of Madonna, Beyonce and Celine Dion and there’s no stopping her yet

To add to the long list of achievements, singer, makeup entrepreneur, lingerie designer and the first black woman to head a top luxury fashion house, Rihanna, has now become the world’s richest female musician according to Forbes

Rihanna, 31, has racked up a $600 million fortune, an amassed fortune which exceeds that of Madonna ($570 million), Celine Dion ($450 million) and Beyonce ($400 million), whose husband Jay-Z was just named the world’s first billionaire rap star.

Rihanna, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty and who is also known as Riri, landed on the music scene in 2003 and her success has been roaring ever since. Her beauty line- Fenty Beauty- co-owned by French luxury giant LVMH, found success with some $570 million in revenue last year after just 15 months of business. Majority of her fortune however, is from touring and musical releases. 

Just last month, Rihanna, who is famously known as Riri, announced her partnership with LVMH to launch a luxury fashion brand based in Paris, which will produced ready-to-wear clothes, shoes and accessories. This is a huge step in the fashion world, with Fenty sitting alongside veteran brands including Dior, Fendi, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy. 

“I just want to see things from my perspective. I’m a young black woman who loves and embraces all of the young people’s ideas and energies – I’m so about that,” she said while speaking to AFP in Paris adding that “It is about turning all of that into something luxurious for this fashion house.”

In addition to her venture into luxury fashion, the Umbrella singer has hinted at dropping a new reggae album this year. “I never thought I’d make this much money, so a number is not going to stop me from working,” she told an American magazine in May. 

“Money is happening along the way, but I’m working out of what I love to do, what I’m passionate about,” she added. 

The big fan base of Rihanna took over the internet, echoing their exctiment.

"Wake up, everybody!!! A black female is the richest musician in the WORLD, not just the USA....the WORLD! Make way for the queen. She told y’all back in 2009 “That Rihanna reign just won't let up”! @rihanna #Rihanna #queenriri," said one user.

Another fan posted, "Rihanna tops Forbes rich list thanks to #Fenty make-up. Although Rihanna hasn't released an album in more than three years - it's clear the work, work, work, work, work she's putting into her other business ventures is paying off https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-48523876 … #Rihanna #richlist."
