    Even if it's true it's hella cool and everything but I wouldn't account her net worth as part of the music field. When you read the headline you expect Rihanna to be a music empire in terms of the new reported net worth but once you start reading you don't see music anywhere and you just see that most of her net worth doesn't come through music but make-up products and lines instead. The music is not the merit here.

    Is she massively rich? Of course, does she deserve it? Sure ... But I would change the "richest singer" thing for "entrepeneur" or "designer". She defintely got this net worth completely OUTSIDE of the music business, the new money / assests she got have NOTHING to do with music .

    For me a music / singing net worth needs to come mostly through the music sales, concerts, records, music royalties, etc ... In consequence I still consider Madonna or Celine the "richest singers" out there, if that makes any sense, most of their net worth come straightly from a music career.

    Rihanna's net worth = Entrepeneur
    Madonna and Celine's net worths = singers

      I don’t why people care about these things, it doesn’t translate to good music.

        This nuance is unnecessary.

        Rihanna tops this list this year. Leave her be.

          I didn't say she didn't top the list and I'm definitely letting her be.

          I just simply added that her new earnings come from a work she did as an entrepeneur, not as a singer.

            I get that but I'm also saying it doesnt matter where her new earnings came from. She still tops this list as the richest female singer.

              If her other ventures weren't this successful, they would've gotten 2 albums since Anti

                    I don’t understand why people care so much about how much money celebrities have. I couldn’t care less.

                    Good for her though! She is working hard.

                      Not to dismiss rihanna, but Forbes also wants us to think kylie Jenner is a billionaire when she’s just a store front for a manufacturing outfit.

                          I wouldn't say Madonna's wealth comes solely from music. She has/has had gyms, perfumes, a skincare range and fashion brands to fatten her bank account.

                            Most of her ventures outside of the music industry have either underperformed, bombed, or didn't smash, none of those project you mentioned set the market on fire at all. Even her movie career was a failure in general and her most successful role "Evita" is actually a musical with a powerful soundtrack.

                            It's undebatable that the vast majority of Madonna's income / net worth comes from Records sales, touring and royalties.
