Ariana Grande has been a singer for many years, but she is also a successful businesswoman, having been named one of the most powerful celebrity entrepreneurs in 2022.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the pop star’s fragrance line, which debuted in 2015, has earned a whopping $1 billion in global retail sales.
Currently, the “Knew Better/Forever Boy” singer has several perfumes available through Ulta Beauty, including God Is A Woman Eau de Parfum, Cloud, Sweet Like Candy, and many more.
Grande’s cosmetics line, r.e.m beauty, was a huge success shortly after its launch last year, as celebrities have been venturing out into the world of entrepreneurship in recent years, particularly within the makeup community.
By April of this year, the beauty brand will be available in over 1,000 Ulta Beauty locations.
In other business news, she recently launched her God is a Woman line, which includes body cream, body oil, body scrub, and other products.
Long before she succeeded in the music industry, the “goodnight n go” songstress worked as a Broadway actor and a television star.
Her career took off after she appeared on several Nickelodeon shows such as “Victorious” and “Sam & Cat.” In 2013, she released her debut album, “Yours Truly,” which included hit songs like “The Way,” “Baby I,” “Daydreamin’,” and many more.
She debuted with the single “Put Your Hearts Up” before releasing her first album, but she wasn’t pleased with the song or music video, although it launched her music career.
She told Rolling Stone:
“That was the worst moment of my life. For the video, they gave me a bad spray tan and put me in a princess dress and had me frolic around the street. The whole thing was straight out of hell.”
Grande even admitted that she instructed her team to remove the music video from her Vevo YouTube channel.
Ariana Grande’s net worth is estimated to be $220 million as of 2022, thanks to album sales, tour ticket sales, streams, and her line of business.
