We think it’s safe to say that Rihanna is absolutely crushing it right now — even by Rihanna standards.
The music and fashion icon has been on a winning streak pretty much from the moment she became an overnight household name with the release of “Umbrella” way back in 2017.
But in recent weeks, Rihanna has been working overtime to remind the world of exactly why she’s often referred to simply as “Queen.”
In May, RiRi welcomed her first child, and the we don’t know anything about the kid yet, entire world pretty has much already declared him the coolest person on the planet.
Obviously, no one would blame Rihanna if she took the next couple of years off and just focused on being a mom.
Instead, she’s continuing to make headlines as one of the most successful entrepreneurs and entertainers on the planet.
The latest feather in RiRi’s cap comes courtesy of Forbes magazine which has included the 34-year-old on its annual list of self-made women.
According to Forbes, Rihanna’s personal net worth is roughly $1.4 billion.
While it was obviously music that made her famous, she reached that billionaire mark largely on the strength of her Fenty fashion brand.
Rihanna is the youngest self-made female billionaire on the planet, and the only woman under 40 on the Forbes list.
Rihanna is a native of Barbados, and she also enjoys the distinction of being that country’s very first billionaire.
RiRi still owns a 30 percent stake in Fenty, and while that accounts for most of her wealth, but it seems that she’s not finished making new music.
Though she’s been away from the recording booth for several years, the mother of one recently told Vogue that she plans to release a new album in the very near future.
“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 said.
“It’s authentic, it’ll be fun for me, and it takes a lot of the pressure off.”
Now, some of you might be wondering how RiRi has been dubbed the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire when Kylie Jenner is several years younger than the singer.
Kylie was declared a billionaire back in 2019, but Forbes later stripped her of the title, alleging that they had been misled with regard to her finances.
Two years later, Kylie has yet to rejoin the billionaires’ club.
Her current net worth is estimated at roughly $600 million.
Needless to say, Kylie is still doing quite well for herself, but she has a ways to go if she wants to hit 10-figure status.
Plus, many observers argued from the start that Kylie couldn’t really be considered “self-made,” due to the fact that she had been born into a life of wealth and fame.
You’ll hear no such nay-saying when it comes to Rihanna, of course.
Like her friend and former flame Drake, the woman born Robyn Fenty undeniably started from the bottom.
And something tells us the best is yet to come from one of the world’s most beloved public figures.
