Musician turned business mogul, Rihanna has just become America’s youngest self-made billionaire with $1.7 billion.
In the past year, Forbes has recorded 87 less billionaires than it did in 2020. With a global pandemic, economic setbacks, and inflation across the globe, it has been a hard year for a lot of people, some of the 1% included.
Although it has been tough, 236 have managed to join the ranks of billionaires across the world. Among the list is the founder and CEO of Fenty Beauty, a cosmetic company.
In April of this year, Rihanna made her debut on the Forbes annual billionaires list. She has had an interesting career from humble beginnings to stardom, then nearly going bankrupt to increasing her net worth at that time by 340% now. Starting her career in 2003 at around 15 years old, Rihanna has been working for 19 years.
