With an estimated net worth of $600 million, Rihanna, 31, is the
world’s richest female musician,
reported Natalie Robehmed of Forbes
.

That level of wealth puts her a long ways from her childhood.
“When I was younger, I couldn’t afford everything, but a pair of
Timberlands: That was my Dior,” Rihanna told
T: The New York Times

St

Magazine
. “And I had to save my money for a whole school year
to get those Timberlands that I wanted, and I did it.”

It’s a determined attitude that helped the singer get to where
she is today. Her fortune isn’t just from her music — she’s been
able to grow it through brand partnerships and her own product
lines. 

While she’s known to splurge on beauty, fashion, and vacations,

Rihanna
prioritizes spending money on others, whether it’s her
family or those in need. She’s heavily involved in charity work and
was named Harvard’s humanitarian of the year in 2017,
reported Kelly Lawler for USA Today
.
