Rihanna makes 2022 Forbes list as youngest self-made billionaire

The Fenty queen has been putting in the "work, work, work" and she has the money to back it up.

Rihanna is officially the youngest female self-made billionaire in the United States with a net worth of $1.4 billion, as announced in the Forbes' 2022 list of "America's  Richest Self-Made Women."

E! News says the singer's net worth "may soon go up, too." After all, Rihanna is the co-owner of Fenty Beauty and holds a 30 percent stake in her lingerie line, Savage x Fenty — the two businesses combined have highly impacted the milestone.

"Fenty Beauty, which she co-owns with French luxury retailer LVMH, generated more than $550 million in revenue in 2020," says Today.

The pop star turned business mogul told Vogue Magazine, "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."

This list of young female self-made billionaires over the past few years also included Kylie Jenner (net worth of $600 million), Taylor Swift (net worth of $570 million), and Whitney Wolfe Herd (net worth of ($740 million). 

Rihanna's milestone comes just after she gave birth to her first child with rapper A$AP Rocky on May 13.
