Think you're doing well financially?  Well here's your daily dose of reality courtesy of Forbes' annual ranking of the Top 10 highest paid entertainers.  Before you jump off a bridge, just know that this kind of money comes with a price.  LOL, no it doesn't, it just makes you filthy rich!


Here are your Top 10 Highest Paid Entertainers (from June 2016 to June 2017)


  1. Diddy, $130 million - Is he really just going by Diddy now??  We should charge an extra tax on that money for that!
  2. Beyonce, $105M - She makes more than her hubby Jay Z, which means she has 99 problems but that ain't one!
  3. J.K. Rowling, $95M - This number is deceiving because it's really in Galleons. (That's the wizard form of currency if you didn't get that joke.  I won't be explaining moving forward.)
  4. Drake, $94M - He started from the bottom now he's 4th.
  5. Cristiano Ronaldo, $93M - This is for playing soccer, right??
  6. The Weeknd, $92M - He can take the rest of the week off with that kind of money!
  7. Howard Stern, $90M - There is money in radio!!
  8. Coldplay, $88M - This is for the whole group so really they are not that rich.
  9. James Patterson, $87M - I wonder if he will write a book about how to make $87 Million Dollars in a year.
  10. LeBron James, $86M - He made this money and won and lost an NBA championship during this time.  I lived in a trailer at the Erie County Fair for 2 weeks.

So there it is, the rich get richer.  Oprah didn't crack the top 10 so you know this list is legit.  Who knows, maybe in a few more years you will be on this list.  I'm just kidding, but hey you never know!
