top 10 highest paid celebrity of 2020

2020 has been really tough for a lot of people for a lot of reasons

Even famous actors, musicians, and influencers have been honest about how the locks have had an impact on their careers, whether it be scheduled closures or tour cancellations, they have lost on major opportunities and therefore a lot of money.

But if this year has been difficult for many of us, some celebrities have still made it to prosper.

On Monday, Forbes released its list of the 100 highest-paid celebrities of 2020, but they also noted that even the richest celebrities have taken a hit this year.

The combined income of everyone on the list was $ 6.1 billion, or $ 200 million down from last year's grand total.

For some reason, I don't feel so bad for them, and you probably won't either after hearing how much these celebrities earn.

Even the person who came last on the list won $ 35.1 million.

Let's go through some of these stars and don't worry we'll see who held this coveted number one spot.

We have Katy Perry and Lady Gaga who came in 86th and 87th place respectively, each winning about $ 38 million.

They both released some great albums this year, so it makes sense!
Travis Scott was just a little ahead of Katy and Gaga in 82nd place, earning $ 39.5 million.

Let's move on to number 60 This is where our daughter Rihanna came in and she made $ 46 million this year. no surprise was given that RiRi has more successful businesses than anyone we know.

The 40s were where they are too with Drake at 49, Kim Kardashian at 48, BTS at number 47, Billie Eilish at number 43, and Jay-Z at number 42. They all made around or just over $ 50 million.

Shawn Mendes also sneaked past them, taking 39th place, earning nearly $ 55 million.
In the 1920s we had Post Malone in 28th place, Taylor Swift at 25, and Ed Sheeran at 23. All three have won over $ 60 million.

Also… do you have any guesses for the number one winner?

We still haven't seen Ariana Grande, Kylie Jenner, Ellen DeGeneres, The Rock, or Kanye West and I think we all know they're always at the top of these types of lists.

Our daughter Ariana Grande arrived at number 17, just ahead of the Jonas Brothers at number 20 and just behind Ellen DeGeneres at number 12.

Ellen made $ 84 million, Ari made $ 72 million and the JoBros made $ 68.5 million, but I guess they have to divide that three ways, right?

I mean it would still be $ 22.8million apiece which is still more money than most people see in a lifetime.

Now we have entered the coveted top ten with The Rock at number 10 with $ 87.5 million.

Then there was a group of athletes like Lebron James, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Roger Federer ... Which brings us to second place.

Like hundreds of millions of dollars ahead of everyone else on the list.

Not to mention, Kylie also blew the rest of the Kar-Jenner family out of the park. 
According to Forbes, a large chunk of Kylie's income came from her impressive $ 540 million after it sold 51% of its Kylie Cosmetics brand to the listed company Coty, Inc. for $ 600 million.

And she showed her income this year in part by buying a $ 36.5 million mansions in Los Angeles, which we all saw on his Instagram.




Kanye's massive gains were also due to his major Adidas deal with his Yeezy sneaker brand.

And The Rock has a lot to do with his big salaries for his upcoming "Black Adam "and" Red Notice ".

So there you have it, that's all these celebs have won this year, but luckily some of them have also given back this year.

We know BTS certainly did, so if you want to know more about how BTS donated $ 1million to the Black Lives Matter movement, please subscribe tô our newsletter.
