It seems that Rihanna has been slowly processing what it really means to her to be a billionaire now.
In an interview with the New York Times, the singer and businesswoman commented on her new financial status and said she was getting used to it, Complex.com reports.
“It’s difficult because it’s hard to accept that you’re here because I know where I’m from,” said Rihanna.
“At the same time, it is good to be able to inspire young women and boys who, like me, come from humble backgrounds, have immigrant parents or are immigrants themselves.”
Rihanna repeated similar feelings on the red carpet of her Savage X Fenty Vol 3 show. “You know, it was really weird to get congratulatory texts from people for money… I’ve never congratulated them for money before. This shit is crazy. “
She added, “I’m scared if the pedestal comes into play and people put you there and keep trying to put you there,” she told Extra TV. “I want to feel my feet on the ground because I know it won’t be a fall at all, right?”
In early August, Forbes announced that Rihanna had become a billionaire with a net worth of around $ 1.7 billion. Most of that comes from their business endeavors, with their 50 percent stake in Fenty Beauty alone being reportedly worth $ 1.4 billion.
Her finances have earned her the title of “richest musician in the world” and the second richest entertainer after Oprah.
Rihanna made a three-word answer after learning of her updated net worth: “God is good”.
