Rihanna: ‘It Was Real Weird Getting Congratulations Texts From People For Money’

Singer and fashion maven Rihanna is one of the most successful entrepreneurial recording artists which is why Forbes declared her a billionaire due to her flourishing career and businesses. She has stated recently that after being acknowledged for becoming a billionaire that “it was real weird” that she started “getting congratulation texts from people for money.

According to Buzzfeed News, the talented businesswoman, while being interviewed on the red carpet of her latest Savage X Fenty show had expressed bewilderment on her new financial status that surprised her.

“You know, it was real weird getting congratulations texts from people for money? I never got congratulated for money before. That shit is crazy.”

The “Umbrella” singer also told Access that “It made sense when I realized that it was inspiring to people that they felt like this is something that they could achieve knowing where I’ve come from. Knowing my humble beginnings, they see the possibility, and it gives them hope. That made me feel really happy.”

Earlier this summer, Rihanna’s wealth has grown so much that Forbes had announced that she is officially a billionaire.

The singer and burgeoning entrepreneur is now officially worth $1.7 billion, according to estimates by Forbes magazine. The total net worth of Rihanna makes her the wealthiest female musician on this Earth and second only to the Queen of entertainment, Oprah Winfrey as the richest female entertainer.

As Rihanna has made her mark in the music world after being signed by another billionaire, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, her singing talent initially led her to the superstardom she has experienced. But, the bulk of her fortune is from her entrepreneurial efforts. Her stake in her company, Fenty Beauty, is worth an estimated $1.4 billion. And with her own lingerie company, Savage x Fenty, which is worth an estimated $270 million, plus her earnings from her career as a chart-topping musician and actress, it adds up to her being worth $1.7 billion.
