HBO Documentary Film 'Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream' New York Premiere - Red Carpet

Forbes just released its second annual list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women and it comes as no surprise that Oprah Winfrey and Beyoncé landed on it.

Both Queen Bey and Mama O are legendary innovators in their respective fields. Winfrey almost single-handedly built her brand as the queen of all media and Beyoncé’s music-making empire has earned her a fortune.

To be considered on the list of 60 most powerful women, you must have a minimum individual net worth of $250 million.

Winfrey has accumulated a net worth of a cool $3.1 billion—buoyed in part by her new ties to Weight Watchers. Although Beyoncé trailed a little behind on the list, she still managed to rake in over $265 million, mostly due to her watermelon water investment, a world tour, and new Ivy Park clothing line.
