In the realm of financial success, Taylor Swift has cemented her position as the second richest self-made woman in the music industry, according to a recent Forbes publication.
With an estimated net worth of $740 million, the 33-year-old singer-songwriter has surpassed notable figures like Madonna, whose net worth stands at $580 million, and Beyoncé, who boasts a net worth of $540 million.
Taylor Swift currently occupies the 34th spot on the esteemed “America’s Richest Self-Made Women” list, which features an array of successful entrepreneurs and business magnates.
The list includes prominent figures such as media mogul Oprah Winfrey at number 13, with a staggering net worth of $2.5 billion, as well as Diane Hendricks, the esteemed founder of ABC Supply, the largest wholesale distributor of roofing materials in the US, who sits at the pinnacle of the list with an impressive net worth of $15 billion.
Swift’s net worth is poised for further growth as she embarks on her highly anticipated “Eras Tour.” Last year, when tickets for the tour went on sale, there was a surge of interest that controversially crashed Ticketmaster’s platform. This incident was emblematic of Swift’s immense popularity and the unwavering support of her loyal fanbase.
However, the journey to the top of the music industry’s wealth ladder is still a considerable one for Taylor Swift.
Leading the pack is none other than Rihanna, whose illustrious discography and thriving Fenty Beauty makeup company have propelled her to billionaire status. With an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion, Rihanna claims the top spot on the “Richest Self-Made Women” list in the music industry, effectively doubling Swift’s net worth.
At 35 years old, the multi-talented Rihanna secures the 20th position on the comprehensive “America’s Self-Made Women” list, showcasing her remarkable business acumen and diverse ventures.
Recently, Rihanna made headlines with a TikTok video flaunting an extravagant diamond toe ring, reportedly valued at a staggering $600,000.
Additionally, her preparations for the prestigious Met Gala involved adorning herself with jewels from Cartier, with an estimated worth of $25 million, making a grand statement at the glamorous event held on the first Monday in May.
While Taylor Swift’s financial achievements are undeniably noteworthy, she remains in pursuit of the pinnacle of self-made success in the music industry. Nevertheless, her talent, entrepreneurial endeavors, and dedicated fanbase continue to solidify her status as one of the most influential figures in the music world, and her ascent up the wealth rankings is a testament to her enduring popularity and business prowess.
