Every year Forbes Magazine releases a list of the 100 highest paid celebrities. Last year Taylor Swift was numero uno, but this year there is a NEW number one!
This isn’t surprising considering her stepping out of the spotlight, skipping awards shows, not touring, etc.
What IS surprising is the person who took her place! I would have guessed Adele, Ed Sheeran or Katy Perry, but nope. I didn’t see this one coming!
Sean ‘Diddy” Combs is now number one on the list, jumping up from 22 last year. How did he pull this one off? With the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, a partnership with Diego’s Ciroc vodka and selling one-third of his Sean John clothing line for an estimated $70m. His total earnings for 2017? 130 million! THAT IS SOME MEGA CHEDDAR!
Number two on the list is Beyonce with 105 million and Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling with 95 million.
