Top 10 Highest Paid Entertainers in the World
Think you're doing well financially? Well here's your daily dose of reality courtesy of Forbes' annual ranking of the Top 10 highest paid entertainers. Before you jump off a bridge, just know that this kind of money comes with a price. LOL, no it doesn't, it just makes you filthy rich!
Here are your Top 10 Highest Paid Entertainers (from June 2016 to June 2017)
- Diddy, $130 million - Is he really just going by Diddy now?? We should charge an extra tax on that money for that!
- Beyonce, $105M - She makes more than her hubby Jay Z, which means she has 99 problems but that ain't one!
- J.K. Rowling, $95M - This number is deceiving because it's really in Galleons. (That's the wizard form of currency if you didn't get that joke. I won't be explaining moving forward.)
- Drake, $94M - He started from the bottom now he's 4th.
- Cristiano Ronaldo, $93M - This is for playing soccer, right??
- The Weeknd, $92M - He can take the rest of the week off with that kind of money!
- Howard Stern, $90M - There is money in radio!!
- Coldplay, $88M - This is for the whole group so really they are not that rich.
- James Patterson, $87M - I wonder if he will write a book about how to make $87 Million Dollars in a year.
- LeBron James, $86M - He made this money and won and lost an NBA championship during this time. I lived in a trailer at the Erie County Fair for 2 weeks.
So there it is, the rich get richer. Oprah didn't crack the top 10 so you know this list is legit. Who knows, maybe in a few more years you will be on this list. I'm just kidding, but hey you never know!
