Forbes has released its annual Celebrity 100 list of the world’s highest-earning celebrities. Several celebrities from the music has made the list such as Drake, P. Diddy and Rihanna

Every year, Forbes magazine list all the celebrities who earned the best salary during the last 12 months. Earlier this week, we learned that Beyoncé and Jay Z were the world’s highest-paid celebrity couple of the year with $107,5 million. A really big amount of money that still doesn’t compete with Taylor Swift’s salary…

With $170 millions earned, Taylor Swift tops the list followed by One Direction (#2 – $110 million), Cristiano Ronaldo (#4 – $88 million ) or Adele (#9 – $80,5 million).

Rihanna ranks #13 with $75 million while Diddy (#22 – $62 million), Justin Bieber (#26 – $56 million), The Weeknd (#30 – $55 million), Beyoncé (#34 – $54 million), Jay Z (#36 – $53,5 million) stay in the top 50. Dr Dre (#51 – $41 millions) and Drake (#69 – 38,5 $millions) can be found at lower positions.

A quarter of the celebrities in the list are less than 30 years old and only 15 women have made the list. Yet another proof that the lingering wage gap between men and women is still a thing even in the industry/showbusiness
