Kanye West, Kylie Jenner, & Jay-Z Rule Forbes' Highest-Paid Entertainers List

Per the publication's reported stats, she had a pretax income of $185 million, which marks her biggest earning year every.

Ed Sheeran was the highest placed British star on the list, which ranks the world's top paid celebrities in music, sports and entertainment according to what they made over the last 12 months.

Swift also had a few familiar faces on the list-including her pal Ed Sheeran, who snagged the no. 5 spot with an estimated $110 million in earnings-and her ex Calvin Harris, who came in at no. 95 with reported earnings of $38.5 million. Talk about power couples.

Interestingly, Beyoncé and Jay-Z tied for no. 20, each bringing in a respectable $81 million this year.

The Forbes said that BTS take home big earnings thanks to its "Love Yourself, Speak Yourself" stadium tour, which encompassed three USA cities, Sao Paulo, London, and Paris this year. The figures take into account the income from her Reputation album, Netflix's streaming of the tour and her new deal with Republic Records.


Singer Taylor Swift should feel happy now, after she lashed out recently over not being able to own the masters of her previous recordings.

Six actors from the Marvel Universe also made it into the Celebrity 100 thanks to the success of Avengers: Endgame. Kim Kardashian ranked No.26 on the list. Forbes reports Yeezy made an estimated US$1 billion in sales previous year alone.

-Only 16 women make the list, with nine featuring in the top 50.

Athletes accounted for four spots in the top 10: Lionel Messi at No. 4, Cristiano Ronaldo at No. 6, Neymar at No. 7 and Canelo Alvarez at No. 10.

Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran also joined the top 5 standing at the fifth position with United States dollars 110 million.
