06/07/2022

Rihanna has been crowned the youngest female to become a self-made billionaire according to Forbes’ list of ‘America’s Richest Self-Made Women’ 2022.

Making the list three years in a row, Riri has appeared on Forbes' annual list of America's richest self-made women. She placed 21st overall but is the only billionaire under the age of 40 on the list.

The self-made billionaire didn’t grow up living a lavish life, instead, Rihanna gained her whopping $1.4 billion fortune from her own successful music career and business projects.

According to Forbes, her $1.4 billion mostly comes from the success of her cosmetics brand, Fenty Beauty and the 30% share of the Savage x Fenty lingerie company.

If that wasn’t enough of an achievement RiRi is said to be Barbados’ first billionaire, and in April, was announced as the world’s richest female musician.

Those dollars could be even higher soon as the singer has hinted that new music is on the way.

"I'm looking at my next project completely differently from the way I had wanted to put it out before. I think this way suits me better, a lot better," she told Vogue

She continued: "It's authentic, it'll be fun for me, and it takes a lot of the pressure off."

So I guess now, being a billionaire and all, you can stop telling that b*tch that she better have your money, right Riri?
