(NEW YORK) — Kylie Jenner is a magazine cover fixture, but usually not for this magazine: Forbes.
Kylie ranks as the youngest woman on the entire list of “America’s Richest Self-Made Women,” with the business publication noting the 20-year-old is, “set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.”
Forbes notes Jenner ranks on the list at number 27 overall, with an estimated worth of $900 million thanks to her mega-successful Kylie Cosmetics makeup line.
In the music category, Madonna comes in at number 26, making her America’s wealthiest female musician. Forbes puts her estimated net worth at $590 million. Celine Dion ranks at number 46 with an estimated net worth of $430 million. Despite being Canadian by birth, Forbes cites that most of her money has been made within the U.S.
Taylor Swift is number 60 on the list, with an estimated net worth of $320 million primarily from music, touring, and endorsements.
Other female artists on the tally include Barbra Streisand at number 48 and Beyonce at number 53.
So who’s number one? Hint: she’s rich, but not famous.
Diane Hendricks, the co-founder and chairman of ABC Supply, one of the largest wholesale distributors of roofing, siding, and windows in America, topped the list. She’s worth an estimated $4.9 billion.
