A couple of hours ago, Forbes magazine published its customary report of who are the personalities that earn the most money in current times. Although it seems hard to believe, the singer from Barbados, Rihanna established herself as a billionaire diva by sweeping celebrities with more experience than her. In fact, it passed Oprah Winfrey who made the second-place list in the entertainment category. 

According to Forbes magazine, Rihanna, 33, has a fortune of $ 1.7 billion. But the curious thing about it is that these income are not due to his career as a singer, since since 2006 he has not released an album since the last one was Anti; and it was located for 63 weeks in the charts of Billboard. However, the pop star turned her gaze to a new endeavor. 

Rihanna was able to build her own business empire thanks to her Fenty Beauty makeup line and Savage x Fenty lingerie collection. But the road was not easy, because she had to deal with harsh situations such as racism and gender abuse. Luckily, her fierce character made her worthy of the overwhelming success that surrounds her today.
