Beyoncé’s last album may have been called Lemonade, but her latest investment is all about lemon water. The Houston native was announced as one of the newest investors for Lemon Perfect, which is organic, cold-pressed lemon water. Beyoncé joined the company’s $31M Series A funding round along with other capital ventures.
She talked about the exciting investment move in a statement. “I don’t typically enjoy drinks without added sugar, but Lemon Perfect is delicious,” she said. “It was an easy decision to invest in something that not only tastes great and is healthy, but also, and most importantly, allows choosing a healthier lifestyle to be affordable and accessible to everyone.”
The “Halo” singer has made several big investments over the years that only further prove how bossy she truly is. She invested in Parisian accessories and ready-to-wear firm Destree, Sidestep, which is an app for purchasing concert merchandise, Uber, and of course Tidal, which is her husband Jay-Z’s music streaming app. She also invested in her company Parkwood Entertainment as well as investment properties.
As you can imagine, Yoncé isn’t the only celebrity who likes to invest. Here’s a list of other celebrity investments.
Rihanna isn’t a billionaire for any reason. Just like Beyoncé, the mom-to-be has also invested in Destree and Tidal, but she also has investments in her companies Fenty Beauty and Savage x Fenty.
Tennis great Serena Williams created her own investment firm called Serena Ventures where she prides herself on investing in minority-owned companies. So far, they have invested in over 61 companies including Impossible Foods and CoinTracker.
Ciara is getting “1, 2 Step” to the bank with her investments. She and her husband Russell Wilson are investors and co-owners of Ten to One rum, and together they invested $1.75M in a Seattle charter school. The singer is also the owner of her entertainment company Beauty Marks.
Gabrielle Union has invested in many companies and is helping her daughter Kaavia earn financial wealth in the process. The mother and daughter duo invested in Angel City Football Club. The actress and her husband Dwyane Wade have also invested in and are co-owners of the baby line Proudly and children’s clothing line Janie and Jack.
When Naomi Osaka isn’t on the tennis court, she is making smart money moves. She invested in sports technology and gaming company, StatusPro, salad chain Sweetgreen, and the North Carolina Courage of the National Women’s Soccer League.
