Forbes gives us their list of highest-earning celebrities under 30.
It's time for another Forbes list. In September, we received their annual Hip Hop Cash Kings list, and this month they've announced the 30 Under 30 list. The 30 Under 30 list rounds up the highest-paid celebrities of all walks of life (sports, music, acting etc), who are under 30-years old.
Taylor Swift, who may or may not be adding a touch of the hip-hop and r'n'b influence on her forthcoming album if rumors are to be believed, ranks at #1. The 26-year old pop star earned $170 million in a year thanks to her 1989 album and accompanying tour. The youngest person on the 30 Under 30 list is Justin Bieber, who at 22-years old, ranks at #6 after earning $56 million. Drake has some catching up to do to his fellow Canadian, ranking at #17 with $38 million to his name. A number of different athletes make up the list as well, with 24-year old Kyrie Irving coming in at #30 ($28.5 million), Usain Bolt at #27 ($32.5 million), James Harden at #26 ($33 million) and Cam Newton at #10 ($53 million-- tying with The Weeknd).
