It’s not even Friday and Queen Bey can still holler that she, “Just Got PAID!” Forbes is rolling out its annual list which reveals just how much the rich and famous are raking in yearly. Therefore, who was Forbes 2017 Highest Paid Celebrity? Did the Queen reign supreme?
Beyonce Earned $105 Million! Forbes 2017 Highest Paid Celebrity
Beyonce definitely is a contender for the top spot. During 2016 Beyonce was like Visa, everywhere you want to be! The songstress kicked things off by releasing her monster smash album, Lemonade. Lemonade not only got major streams, but is also nearing the double platinum mark.
In addition to an album, Beyonce also made that cash/money by embarking on an global tour. Thanks to her Formation Tour Bey snatched up some serious coin. Forbes estimates that last year alone Beyonce earned $105 million! Her net worth is now $350 million. Altogether now, “DANG!”
Although any of us would love to even play around with just 1% of that; would you believe us if we told you that that amount of money did not earn Beyonce the top spot? Yes, our friends, Beyonce comes in at number two on Forbes list. Still, not a bad accomplishment in any way. Actually, this makes Beyonce America’s Richest Self-Made Woman for 2017.
So then, who is number one? Here’s a hint: It’s Bad Boy Baby! Yep, P. Diddy edges out Bey by $17 milli. Last year, the hip hop and liquor mogul cashed in $122 million. Wow… now those are some bank accounts we would gladly trade with!
