Rihanna is celebrating being the youngest billionaire on Forbes' list!
RiRi is worth $1.4 billion, which puts her at No. 21 on the list.
Forbes puts her self-made score as a 10, which means she built her own company or established the fortune on her own. Rihanna, reached billionaire status in August, with her Fenty Beauty cosmetics line generating more than $550 million in revenue and a 30 percent stake in the Savage x Fenty lingerie line, which raised $1 billion.
Rihanna’s homeland of Barbados bestowed a high honor upon her naming RiRi a “National Hero” in her home country.
“On behalf of a grateful nation, but an even prouder people, we therefore present to you the designee for national hero of Barbados, Ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty,” Barbadian Prime Minister Mia Mottley told the crowd. “May you continue to shine like a diamond and bring honor to your nation by your works, by your actions and to do credit wherever you shall go.”
On National Heroes Day in Barbados, Rihanna commemorated the occassion as an official honoree for the first time, posting a gallery of photos from last year’s Pride of Nationhood ceremony.
“My very first #NationalHeroesDay as a National Hero of my country Barbados!” RiRi wrote in the caption. “What an absolute honor to be amongst such great men and women who have come before me and held this title in commitment to our nation! I will forever cherish these memories and continue to represent the Bajan people and my home Barbados to the fullest!! Love and gratitude to both The Prime Minister, The Honorable Mia Amor Mottley and our President, Her Excellency The Most Honorable Dame Sandra Mason for trusting me with this honor!”
Rihanna is the 11th person in the country’s history to ever be given the title of National Hero, and one of two women to ever receive the honor.
