Rihanna has been named by Forbes as the wealthiest female entertainer with a whopping networth of 600 million dollars leading huge names in the industry such as Madonna with $570 million, Céline Dion with $450 million and Beyoncé with $400 million.

Her 14 years in the music industry has become the fastest growing career as she surpasses icons who have been in the game decades before her. Popular known as Bad Gyal Riri, the singer turned business mogul has established her surname as a brand that runs the entertainment and fashion industry.

She is just Only $400 million shy of becoming a billionaire like Jay-Z, who happens to be the first hip-hop billionaire.

The Barbadian native moved to the U.S. in 2005 from her home in the Caribbean and has given everyone a run for their money since.

According to Forbes, Rihanna owes her huge success to her smart move into film, fashion as well as beauty products slowly moving from collaboration to owning some of the most influential brands in the world.

In 2017, she launched Fenty Beauty earning a reported $100 million in sales in its first few weeks and generated an estimated $570 million in 2018.

Her latest accomplishment, the launch of her FENTY clothing and accessories line under LVMH is also set to not only influence the fashion industry as strongly as her make up line did but also rake in several millions for the mogul.
