Madonna Makes Forbes List of America’s 50 Richest Self Made Women
Another day, another Forbes list. This one is the publication's first ever list of America's 50 richest self made women. The richest musician on the list? Madonna.
According to Forbes, a minimum net worth of 250 million dollars was the criteria for making the list, which is why Taylor Swift fell short. She's only worth roughly $200 million.
Madonna ranks #28, with an estimated net worth of $520 million. Aside from Madonna, the only other celebrities who made the cut are Oprah Winfrey, who ranks fifth with $5 billion. Beyonce and Judge Judy tied for the #49 spot with estimated fortunes of $250 million.
Other well known names on the list include designers Tory Burch, Donna Karan, Vera Wang and Diane von Furstenberg; author Nora Roberts; Spanx founder Sarah Blakely; and Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg.
