Rihanna named world’s richest female musician

Rihanna has been named the world’s richest female musician.

The Umbrella singer, 31, has amassed a fortune of about $600 million, largely through her music and makeup business, according to Forbes magazine.

Her Fenty Beauty line launched in 2017 and reportedly made $100 million in its first 40 days.

Forbes said Rihanna’s wealth puts her ahead of other music industry giants such as Beyonce, Madonna and Celine Dion.

As well as her career in music and cosmetics, Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, is also behind the Savage X Fenty lingerie line.

She is also set to become the first woman to create a fashion label at French luxury goods company LVMH, which owns Louis Vuitton.

In an interview with The New York Times last month, Rihanna said money was not her main motivation.

She said: ‘Money is happening along the way, but I’m working out of what I love to do, what I’m passionate about.’
