Entrepreneur and businesswoman aren’t the first words I think of when I imagine the pop star, Rihanna, however all that is about to change because, according to Forbes, she is now a billionaire. As a result, you can find Rihanna trending on Twitter with the hashtag #SelfMadeWomen, along with many opinions about her new status. This trending hashtag is what I want to share with you on this week’s social media round-up.

It is important to point out that Rihanna’s music alone did not earn her this fortune but instead her ability to infiltrate the beauty industry with an innovative voice and unique perspective. Looking at Rihanna’s Fenty campaigns, you will notice that she features people from all walks of life in her marketing. The fiscal response from the public to this kind of marketing has resulted in Rihanna becoming a billionaire, and I must say, I am excited to see what she does next.

As we know, many people are not happy with the existence of billionaires, and it is easier to hate on billionaires when they look like Jeff Bezos. But when they create your favorite songs and inspire your wardrobe, it looks like people quickly forget their “eat the rich” philosophies.
Fashion and retail is the second most profitable industry for women according to Forbe’s Top 10 industries for self-made women, beat only by the tech industry, which is no surprise when you look at what is happening in Miami and many other places.
