Beyonce is topping a brand new list by Forbes.
In the last year, Queen B dropped a double album, starred in two films, performed at both the Oscars and a Presidential Inaugural Ball and embarked on what is expected to be, at minimum, a 110-date international tour. She also expanded a fashion collection that includes casual and formal lines as well as jewelry and eyeglasses, and added sponsors Nintendo, Crystal Geyser and General Mills to a roster of endorsers already including L’Or?al, Giorgio Armani and Samantha Thavasa handbags.
My goodness! Looking at it all laid out like that is insane! The woman really does work like an animal. She’s accomplished so much and she is still at a young age! It’s just an example to setting your mind to something and believing in yourself. At least she says she’ll be taking a two year break in the future, because I think she does need to take a break. With her and Jay-Z’s income they are living the really, really good life.
She was placed far ahead of Finnish Formula 1 driver Kimi Raikkonen, 29, and 24-year-old NBA hotshot LeBron James, who complete the top three.
Other stars to feature in the countdown include Toxic hit-maker Spears, 27, who earned $35 million in the last 12 months, while teenage Disney sensations Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers tie in seventh place with Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe and the world’s highest-paid supermodel Gisele Bundchen with $25 million.
The top Best-Paid Celebrities Under 30 are as follows:
1. Beyonce – $87 million
2. Kimi Raikkonen – $45 million
3. LeBron James – $40 million
4. Britney Spears – $35 million
5. Roger Federer – $33 million
