Badgalriri is on the roll!

Barely 24-hours after Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter was named the first Hip Hop’s billionaire, Forbes has named Pop star Rihanna the richest female musician in the world!

According to Forbes, the 31-year-old Pop icon from Barbados has an estimated net worth of $600 million! This puts her Rihanna’s net worth ahead of Madonna ($570 million), Céline Dion ($450 million), and Beyoncé ($400 million).

Rihanna’s makeup business gave her the financial edge over other female singers, according to Forbes (Ian West/PA)

While Rihanna became a global superstar because of #1 hits such as “Umbrella,” “Rude Boy,” “We Found Love,” and “Work,” it’s her reported 15% ownership in Fenty Beauty cosmetics that plays the biggest part in the entertainer being $400 million away from billionaire status. Fenty Beauty is worth approximately $3 billion.

Rihanna also co-owns the Savage X Fenty lingerie line. The 9-time Grammy award winner is also set to become the first woman to create a fashion label at French luxury goods company LVMH, which owns Louis Vuitton.

Recall that the “Rude Boy” singer sued her own father over the Fenty brand. Read here
