This morning I woke up to a wonderful view. Rihanna in a black hoodie with cool braids and rectangular sunglasses, lounging in a hotel bed as she helps herself to caviar on a glittering silver breakfast tray.
The image, which was posted to Instagram, was accompanied by the caption “How I woke up after #FENTYPARFUM was sold this morning !!!” – hours after its release.
Ahead of the launch of her beauty brand’s first foray into perfume, Rihanna teased the product with a celebrity social media campaign confirming the long-standing rumor that the pop star is one of the celebrities. the most fragrant. Putting together images over the years, Rihanna shared the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Lil Nas X, Cardi B, and Ryan Seacrest talking about how she smelled amazing, Lil Nas X saying it was “like heaven.” Prior to the launch of her perfume Fenty, Rihanna reportedly wore Kilian’s Love, Don’t Be Shy as her go-to scent, a rumor that has prompted the perfume to continually sell out time and time again.
News of her ultra-successful new business venture comes just two days after it was announced that the 33-year-old has achieved billionaire status through her labels Fenty Beauty and Savage Fenty Lingerie.
By Forbes, Rihanna is now valued at $ 1.7 billion, and it was before the world could buy its scent in a bottle. This sum makes her the richest musician in the world and the second richest female artist after Oprah. Although she is known for her music (fans are currently dying for his long awaited album R9), the majority of her net worth ($ 1.4 billion) is said to be attributed to her beauty business, Fenty Beauty. Her lingerie line, Savage x Fenty, is worth $ 270 million.
Last week, when paparazzi asked her on the streets what it meant to her to be a “self-made billionaire,” Rihanna had a simple response: “God is good.”
Amid all the ‘eat the rich’ rhetoric and jokes about Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, along with the most serious statistics and numbers on the money billionaires made during the pandemic while d others have faced illness, death and financial instability, it makes STAN weird someone who reaches billionaire status. When I found out about Rihanna my first thought was to figure it out, daughter, followed by… wait, aren’t we supposed to hate billionaires? I mean, if another rich and dirty person showed up eating caviar right now, we’d be squeamish.
But when it’s someone who made themselves (ahem, Kylie Jenner), who made money by exploiting a loophole in a market that was always only for white and thin women. , then created some great products for all skin tones and shapes, maybe we can make an exception.
The conclusion? Eat the rich, except Rihanna.
