Rihanna has been named the richest female musician in the world!

According to Forbes, the singer now has a staggering net worth of $600 million, far surpassing those of the previous record holders Madonna ($570 million) and Celine Dion ($450 million).

Considering the 31-year-old pop star hasn’t released an album since 2016, most of her fortune has been amassed through her Fenty Beauty line, as well as her fashion line Fenty with French luxury goods company LVMH. It’s estimated that the cosmetics line is worth about $3 billion and generated $150 million in its first 15 months of operation.

Clearly Rihanna has invested wisely, and many experts attribute her financial success to more than just slapping her name on a brand.

The Barbadian beauty mogul has chosen ventures that speak to her personality and show fans that she actually believes in the product. Not only that, but her makeup line is extremely inclusive, offering shades to everyone from those with very dark complexions, to those who are very pale.

Obviously, Robyn Rihanna Fenty has done a lot of things right, making herself a true rags to riches story. You go girl!
