Today Forbes shared their annual celebrity billionaires list. This year's edition highlighted 14 stars whose net worth has crossed the billion threshold and ranked them in order of the volume of their wealth. The biggest story of the list was its very first entry, Taylor Swift. The pop star has now barely crossed the billion threshold, but is the first to ever do it entirely through songwriting and performing. She arrives on the list on the back of her massively successful Eras Tour last year.

Elsewhere on the list, all kinds of stars are represented. Filmmakers are well represented with Tyler Perry and Peter Jackson cracking the top 10. George Lucas and Steven Spielberg take up the top two spots on the list. The sports world is also present with Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, LeBron James, and Magic Johnson. Beyond Swift, two more musicians appear on the list and neither are a surprise. Rihanna turns up at number 9 on the list with a net worth of 1.4 billion. Her spot on the list is propelled by brands like Fenty Beauty and Savage x Fenty. Jay-Z turns up at number 5 on the list with an impressive net worth of 2.5 billion. They also point out that his net worth is separate from the $500 million plus that Beyonce nets. Check out the full list below.
