Rihanna hits Forbes list as ‘richest woman in music’

RIHANNA has been named the richest woman in music by Forbes, after reinventing herself from pop superstar to business mastermind.

The magazine estimates her wealth at $600million (about £472million) largely thanks to her cosmetics business, Fenty Beauty.

The brand, which Rihanna, 31, launched in 2017 and is a part-owner of, is worth more than $3billion (£2.4billion), according to Forbes.

It has made her the richest female musician, Forbes said, ahead of Madonna, Celine Dion and Beyonce.

As well as her beauty brand, she is behind a lingerie range, Fenty X Savage.

Last month it was announced Rihanna was to be the first woman to create an original brand at LVMH, the French luxury goods company.
