Forbes has finally declared their list of 100 World’s Highest Paid Celebrities of 2018.And this year it’s quite diverse.
Figures are based on celebs’ pre-tax earnings from June 1, 2017, to June 1, 2018.
From Kylie Jenner to George Clooney — record holder for highest-paid actor ever — see who else made the list.
Here’s a short list of things I regularly type into my Internet search bar: (insert celebrity) age, (insert celebrity) height and (insert celebrity) net worth. I am—and I know I’m not alone in this—obsessed with how much money celebrities make. Or, more specifically, comparing how much money one celebrity makes to how much another celebrity makes. When you’re cashing in millions, it’s all relative!
Forbes ‘2018 “World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities” list is particularly juicy. Kylie Jenner, makeup mogul and mother of Stormi, is the woman sitting at the top of the round up. Before taxes and management fees, the youngest Kardashian/Jenner sibling racked in $166.5 million USD over the past 12 months, placing her behind only boxer Floyd Mayweather ($285 million) and actor George Clooney ($239 million).
Time again for the list everyone wants to be on, Forbes' annual highest-earners of 2018. Here are the top 10 elite of the elite.
What’s most disappointing about this list is that lack of women on it. There are only 15 ladies among the ranks of the world’s highest-paid celebrities, a drop from last year’s 16. It’s a step up from Forbes recently released “World’s Highest-Paid Athletes” list, which didn’t include a single woman this year. Shockingly, in film, music, sports, “being famous”—and realistically, every other professional industry—the gender wage gap is alive and well.
There’s never been a better time to be famous, then now I guess…...
