Right here is our fault. We did this to ourselves. At some level we’re going to need to take accountability for ourselves as a nation and accept the premise that it is, in point of fact, a shit hole ruled by oligarchs, grifters, charlatans, and DJs with Marshmello heads, and with any luck, decide to making the adjustments obligatory to rectify that. In any other case, all is lost. Even supposing Forbes’ Celeb 100: The World’s Perfect Paid Celebrities checklist is a doubtful distinction, we’ve to confess that even supposing their formula is about as scientifically sound as the teachings of Dianetics, it does negate plenty about what we worth as a tradition. And lawful now it’s saying we worth Kylie Jenner the most. She earned $560 million. I can’t mediate I’m saying this, nonetheless 2020 will quit irregular issues to a particular person—Taylor Swift become ROBBED! Final year’s #1 dropped to #25 ($63.5M) and Kanye West scooted into Kylie’s broken-down #2 slot with $170M.
Right here’s how Forbes decides how well-known a celeb “earned.”
The checklist ranks “front of the digicam” stars all the design in which by the globe the usage of pretax earnings from June 2019 by Can also 2020 sooner than deducting costs for managers, attorneys and agents. Figures are according to recordsdata from Nielsen Song/MRC Records, Pollstar, IMDB, NPD BookScan and ComScore as wisely as interviews with industry specialists and plenty of of the celebrities themselves.
Unfortunately, the inflated worth of primary particular person is primarily an American peril. Ignoring a handful of authentic athletes (handle #3 Roger Federer, $106.3M and #4 Cristiano Ronaldo, $105M) and the irregular musician (#91 Paul McCartney, $37M, #73 Celine Dion, $42M), 58 of the 100 richest celebrities are American. Some of them are even men! Truly, Kylie’s the no doubt woman who made the tip 10 which accommodates Tyler Perry ( #6, $97M), Howard Stern (#8, $90M), and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (#10, $87.5).
Truly, females are so nugatory, Forbes had a little bit of plug piece addressing how few female actors made the checklist.
A dozen actors and actresses earned a mixed $624 million this year, nonetheless Hollywood’s incomes elite remains a boys club. This year’s checklist has right two actresses: Sofia Vergara, who earned half from endorsements and licensing, and Angelina Jolie, who slips on at No. 99.
Despite the incontrovertible truth that she tried to play a pleasant particular person on TV for many years, I instruct Ellen DeDeneres isn’t technically an actress anymore. She came in at #12 with $84 million. Also proving that good guys operate final are authentic troll Accelerate Limbaugh (#11, $85M), Now not A Doctor Dr. Phil McGraw (#22 $65.5), pussy police chief J.Good adequate. Rowling (#28, $60M), allegedly reformed abominate crime enthusiast Designate Wahlberg (#33, $58), and destroyer of lungs everywhere, The Chainsmokers came in at #21 with $68M COVID-bucks.
You are going to be in a inform to search out the whole checklist here. There are a few folks that won’t fabricate you wish to present up every thing to prance live off-the-grid in a yurt. Rihanna (#60, $46M) is mute getting paid and received a assorted commendation from Forbes for her generous charitable contributions toward COVID relief organizations. But for the most section, it’s a bleak deliver in over-valued mediocrity. With that in mind, to Ben Affleck, sitting pretty at #37 with $55M, we salute you!
