Our accounting friends over at Forbes just released their annual 10 Highest-Paid Celebs Under 30 list and the top earners may shock you. If you just signed up for the Internet today and spent the last 20 years living off the land in an attempt to find yourself. Or if you’re a member of the Duggar family. Otherwise, you shouldn’t be surprised to find out that Taylor Swift topped the list by earning $57 million dollars between May 2011 to May 2012.
Can you believe that? A band geek who wore glasses grow ups and makes millions of dollars. Well, I never! Bet that popular girl with 20/20 vision sure is biting her tongue now!
Guess tragic break-up
s really do pay off when you can turn them into soulful songs. If T.Swift is as savvy as I think she is, then she’ll make sure to get her broken broken at least 6 more times in the next year. That way she can get as much inspiration as possible and top this list again next year. I’m still eagerly awaiting the tragic football song that sure to come from from her short-lived romance with Tim Tebow.
In even more uplifting news, women beat out men on the list this year. That’s right. Us women-folk be earning mad dollars. Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Adele, Katy Perry and Kristen Stewart all made the list this year. That’s 6 women and 4 men for everyone out there who didn’t major in algebra. Take that men who still think it’s funny to publicly walk around in shirts that say, “take off your shirt!”
No seriously, yay for women making money. And yay for women who make money sharing it with all us. Drinks on RiRi. Maybe?
