Barbadian singer and businesswoman Rihanna has come out to speak about her current financial status, explaining that she’s still getting used to it.

She made this known in an interview with The New York Times where she said “It’s tricky because it’s hard to even accept that’s where you are at because I know where I have come from. At the same time, it feels good to be able to inspire young women and boys, who like me, come from humble beginnings, who come from parents who are immigrants or who are immigrants themselves, to be able to do this.”


She continued, “You know, it was really weird getting congratulations texts from people for money, I never got congratulated for money before. That *BLEEP* is crazy, I get scared when the pedestal comes into play and people put you up there and keep wanting to put you up there.”

If you would recall, earlier in August, Forbes announced that Rihanna had become a billionaire with a net worth of approximately one point seven billion dollars, most of which was derived from her fashion business, with her fifty per cent share of Fenty Beauty being reportedly valued at one point four billion dollars on its own.


This new billionaire status now makes Rihanna the wealthiest female musician in the world and the second wealthiest female entertainer after Oprah Winfrey.
