Beyonce is not only one of the most influential people in the world, but she is extremely brilliant with her business moves. In 2015, the icon was offered $6 million to perform in Las Vegas at an corporate event for Uber. Rather than accepting the monetary payment, Bey took it upon herself to directly invest in Uber stocks and shares.
On May 10, 2019, it was announced that Uber went public on the New York Stock Exchange with $8.1 billion IPO (Initial Public Offering). Each stock priced at $45 each, becoming the largest tech IPO in history. Rumors surfaced that Beyonce’s stake may be valued over $300 million. A few other public figures also have shares that are set to be valued just as high or maybe even more. Forbes has confirmed celebs such as: Ashton Kutcher, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jay-Z, Oliva Munn, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jared Leto.
Once again Beyonce proves that she is really better than the hype. Her and Hov have been relationship goals for a long time. Not only because of their love but because of how they build their empire and legacies. They effortlessly push the culture and teach the younger generation how to invest and why it’s important. Together they have become Hip Hop’s first billionaire couple through several investments, income, and endorsements.
