Rihanna and Beyonce On Forbes' Most Powerful Women in Entertainment List

Rihanna, Beyonce and Taylor Swift are included in Forbes' magazine's list of the World's 100 Most Powerful Women.

Forbes' 18th annual rankings included CEOs, entrepreneurs, politicians, philanthropists, artists and media personalities. Rihanna came in at No. 68, and the singer's highlights included her billionaire status "thanks to the success of cosmetics line Fenty Beauty."

Her cosmetics company raked in more than $550 million in revenue in 2020. She co-owns the brand with the French luxury retailer LVMH. Rihanna's net worth sits at a whopping $1.7 billion.

Beyonce landed at No. 76. Forbes notes her 2018 On The Run II tour hauled in roughly $5 million per night for "a total of more than $250 million" for that tour alone. Beyonce also recently just launched her fifth collaborative collection with Adidas, dubbed "Halls of Ivy."

Taylor Swift checked in at No. 78. It's been a coming-out-party of sorts for Swift, who released "Red (Taylor's Version)" in November. Her 10-minute version of "All Too Well" became the longest song to ever reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 U.S. chart. That record was previously held by Don McLean's "American Pie" for almost 50 years. Her evermore album's also nominated for a GRAMMY for Album of the Year.

Oprah Winfrey led the way on the entertainment list. The TV host and media mogul was No. 23 in the overall rankings.
