Earlier today, Forbes released their Celebrity 100 List, which ranks actors, musicians, athletes, and other personalities based on earnings, social media reach, and impact, where earnings matter most. This year, to no surprise, Beyonce topped the list.
Bey equally represents big earnings, social media popularity, and impact on society.
Most of her earnings came from the “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour,” which consisted of 132 shows, but her other business endeavors really put her over the top.
She earns millions endorsing companies like H&M and Pepsi. She has a line of fragrances with names like Heat, Rise and Pulse, and then there’s her clothing company House of Dereon, which features jeans, shoes and accessories. All together we estimate that Beyoncé earned $115 million between June 1, 2013 and June 1, 2014.
The rest of the top 10 includes some pretty big names as well:
2. LeBron James – $72 million
3. Dr. Dre – $620 million
4. Oprah – $82 million
5. Ellen DeGeneres – $70 million
6. Jay Z – $60 million
7. Floyd Mayweather – $105 million
8. Rihanna – $48 million
