Good Day NWA: Rihanna Named Richest Female Musician

Good Day NWA

Once a “Good Girl Gone Bad” Rihanna has a new title to bask in.  According to Forbes magazine, she is now the *world’s richest* female musician.  The 31-year-old Barbados native has raked in a $600-million fortune, surpassing Madonna, Celine Dion and Beyonce,the runners-up on the magazine’s annual list.  Her wealth is thanks in part to her Fenty Beauty cosmetics company which raked in an estimated $570 million last year alone.  Rihanna co-owns Fenty Beauty with French luxury goods company LVMH.

Take a listen to a new trailer from Disney’s live-action “The Lion King.” Hear a familiar voice?  That’s none other than Beyoncé.  It’s the first time we’ve heard her as the adult “Nala” in upcoming film.  The clip quickly went viral after it was posted.  “The Lion King” hits theaters July 19. 

Cosmetic retailer Sephora will close all of its locations Wednesday for diversity training.  The move comes after R&B singer SZA accused a Sephora location in Calabasas, California, of racial profiling back in April.  The singer alleges security was called on her because a staff member believed she was stealing.  Sephora told the singer last month that the retailer is committed to ensure that every customer feels welcome at its stores.  Sephora says the diversity training includes stores, as well as its distribution center and corporate office.
