Forbes has published its highly-anticipated list revealing America’s Richest Self-Made Women of 2020 and guess which famous faces made the cut? The list of wealthy women includes Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Queen Bey herself.
Rih Rih ranked at No. 33 with a net worth of $600 million. Seems fitting considering Fenty Beauty alone has been a major success and game-changer in the fashion and beauty industry over the last year. Forbes also noted that the “Umbrella” singer made a bulk of fortune from her widely popular Savage X Fenty lingerie line which she co-owns with Techstyle. The company reportedly raised $15 million from investors last year.
Meanwhile, Beyonce had a busy year, landing herself at No. 55 with a $420 net worth.
They don’t call her “Queen” for nothing too. Beyonce made some serious money moves over the last year. According to Forbes, the “Black Is King” artist “grossed roughly $5 million per night” during her On The Run II stadium tour alongside hubby Jay-Z in 2018.
In April of last year, Beyonce’s iconic performance and Homecoming Netflix special from Coachella also raked in some serious coin for her too. That same year, Beyhive fans rejoiced when the singer relaunched her activewear sports line IVY PARK in collaboration with Adidas.
Taylor Swift and a handful of Kardashian-Jenners also made the cut. The annual list doesn’t breakdown exactly how the ladies earned their big bank, but most of the women have several forms of income including beauty businesses, brand partnerships, and countless other ventures.
“These trailblazers, worth a collective $90 billion, have started or helped expand companies that do everything from build rockets to create snowboards to make Covid-19 tests.”
List members range in age from 23 (Kylie Jenner — $600 million, #29) to 94 (life sciences mogul Alice Schwartz). With a net worth of$2.6 billion, Oprah appears on the list a #9. Kim Kardashian ranks #24 with a $780 net worth.
And in case you’re curious by who landed at number 1, co-founder and chairman at ABC Supply Diane Hendricks tops the list with a net worth of $8,000,000,000 dollars.
