From her beauty and fashion brands to her stellar music career, Rihanna is one of the most loved and successful women of our time.
There are many reasons why she's become such a success story, but the biggest one is the fact that she likes to keep it real with us. And her latest post proves that too.

Rihanna is an idol for a reason.

Who doesn't love Rihanna's music?The unique fusion of reggae and R&B vibes became the perfect combination for Rihanna's dance tracks and her first full album, Music of the Sun, was released soon after.
Her career only got more successful with the release of one of her most popular albums, Good Girl Gone Bad.

It became her signature look during the promotion of the album, which featured big-name stars such as Justin Timberlake.
After her most recent album, Anti (2016), was released, she decided to take a break from her music career.Anti did extremely well, ranking at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. It featured some of her most popular songs like "Kiss It Better" and who could ever forget "Work," featuring Drake?
Her latest venture into the beauty industry led her to a fortune of 3 billion dollars.
via: Getty ImagesI'm going to say it: Fenty Beauty is probably one of the best things to ever happen to the industry. In 2017, Rihanna really changed the game with her products, from her range of foundations all the way down to her iconic gloss bomb.
The tag line says it all.
There's nothing worse than not being able to find your shade.
No wonder it's now worth an estimated 3 billion dollars!When Fenty Beauty first launched, it racked up an amazing one hundred million dollars in its first week! Most of the products sold out immediately and the buzz around the company hasn't died since. Rihanna also announced on her Instagram that there is even more to come. I can't help but get excited!
In 2018, Rihanna's career moved into the world of acting.
via: Getty ImagesOf course, we've all watched Ocean's 8, right? The film about a group of bad-ass women who all work together to carry out a heist? You know the one I'm talking about. And if you don't, first of all, where have you been?
Rihanna played a hacker called Nine Ball.
In 9 days, respect the hack. #Oceans8 https://t.co/OTVnUOLMpB— Oceans8Movie (@Oceans8Movie)1527628397.0
After all of this, you would expect Rihanna to be rich, but exactly how rich is she?According to Forbes, all of her efforts add up to an outstanding $600 million fortune, making her the richest female musician in the world right now.
And there were some pretty solid contenders in the running for the crown.
Could Rihanna become a billionaire in the next 5 years?
via: Getty ImagesWell, at the rate she's going, there's nothing that can stop her. The launch of her high-end clothing line in partnership with LVMH means she has yet another way of earning a profit. The release of this line also meant that she made history as the first woman to create an original brand at LVMH while also being the first woman of color at the top of an LVMH establishment.
But other than her astonishing career, she is loved for a more simple reason.
Remember when a reporter asked her this question on the red carpet?During the launch of her first-ever male perfume Rogue, a reporter asked her what she's looking for in a man... And it clearly didn't sit too well with the artist.
And don't even get me started on the whole "fat" fiasco.
via: Getty ImagesA fan photographed Rihanna at an angle deemed "unflattering", and people started sending her abuse about letting herself go and becoming "overweight."
But in true Rihanna fashion, she had the perfect response to those haters.
via: Getty ImagesShe commented on the post saying: "Somebody called me too fat?" with 3 laughing-crying emojis. Even she found the comment to be ridiculous, as did the fans who had her back on the issue.
Long story short, Rihanna is the queen of keeping it calm and collected.
