Forbes just named Rihanna as the richest female musical artist after her net worth determined at around $600M.

In Forbes latest list, Rihana topped the list of the richest female musical artist as her net worth reached $600M. She surpassed other superstars like Madonna, Celine Dion, Beyoncé to top the list. However, Madonna just stays a bit behind Rihanna with $570M while Celine Dion and Beyoncé have remained a huge gap, standing at $450M and $400M.

Income from musical activities isn't her only resource that Rihanna has at her disposal. Reportedly, her makeup and fashion empire have also contributed to her massive fortune.

The Umbrella singer first introduced her brand at Sephora two years ago and increased its sale of $100 million in the first few weeks. Her fast-increasing asset has also derived from Savage X Fenty lingerie brand. However, the stylish singer earlier said that her brand positioning is artistically-driven, not for commercial purpose.

"Money is happening along the way, but I'm working out of what I love to do, what I'm passionate about," Rihanna told The New York Times Style Magazine. 

"Work will change when my life changes in the future but an amount of money is not going to stop that," the star confided.

Lastly, she concluded by saying she aims to help other people by creating job opportunity and that's something always on her mind.
