Beyonce Chime for Change Anniversary

Hey Beyonce, can you lend us a tenner? Queen Bey has topped the Forbes Celebrity 100 list – and raked in a pretty nice lot of earnings last year too!

We all know Beyonce is a force to be reckoned with, and Queen Bey is definitely reigning supreme – she’s topped the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, beating Rihanna, Katy Perry and even her own husband, Jay Z!

Jay Z ranks at number six on the list, making them the most powerful celebrity couple on the list, which rates celebrities earnings, success and influence against each other.

Beyonce’s win comes as she reportedly earned $115million between June 2013 and June 2014, in a year that saw her perform in 95 concerts (for which she earned an incredible average of $2.4 million each – wow!) as well as releasing her surprise fifth album and her brand endorsements with Pepsi and H&M, her own fragrance and her House of Dereon clothing range.

Bey’s other half, Jay Z, who’s currently on tour with her on their joint ‘On The Run’ tour earned $60 million in the past year from his latest album, live shows and his Roc Nation record label.

The highest earner on the list by FAR came in third place, with a whopping $620 million banked in the last year. Yep, it’s Dr Dre, who sold Beats by Dre to Apple for a HUGE $3 billion – a pretty nice earner, we think!
