Capital Breakfast With Roman Kemp 6am - 10am
Ever wondered what celebrities earn every year? Forbes have revealed what the biggest artists in the world raked in last year - and the amount they earn every second is ridiculous!
Taylor is proof that nice girls don't finish last! The country turned pop singer with a heart of gold made a cool $64 million last year. That's enough for a grande latte every TWO SECONDS!
2014 was such a tough year for Calvin - not only did he produce a killer album, bag himself an underwear model AND perform at our Summertime Ball - he was also the highest paid DJ in the world. Seriously, how can you get out of bed on a morning when you're making $2 every SECOND!
Proof that an image change really can transform your life! Miley's gone from squeaky-clean Disney Channel star to professional twerker, and bagged herself a cool $36 million in just 12 months! In the time you've taken to read this, she's made about five bucks and stuck her tongue out four times!
From sell-out stadium tours to number one albums and countless worldwide trends across social media - 2014 was massive for Harry, Liam, Zayn, Niall and Louis! Every second they're earning $2.38 (that's 47¢ each!).
2014 was a pretty quiet year for our favourite Bajan beauty, but she STILL managed to bring in $1.52 a second! It's like being paid a killer wage just to put naughty pictures on Instagram! With a new album coming in 2015, her wealth is sure to grow even more!
Eighty. Million. Dollars. That's what Biebs raked in last year. With a sexy underwear campaign for Calvin Klein and a possible new album, no doubt his $2.54 per second income will increase in 2015!
Let's just pause a second. Even before 'Uptown Funk' gained momentum, without releasing a new album AND performing at the Super Bowl Half Time Show for FREE, Bruno managed to make more money in 2014 than Rihanna, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus! This man is GOLD!
Mother Monster may have earned $33million last year, but we're yet to confirm how much she spent on her WACKY outfits! Every second, the 'Telephone' singer raked in $1.05 - imagine what that will grow to when we get her next pop album?
Earning almost $2 every second, we imagine that life in the Carter household is very luxurious! Blue Ivy's nappies must be gold-plated! But who earned more, Sean or Beyonce Carter? Place your bets...
Of course Beyonce brought home the bacon in 2014! With a solo tour, joint tour with hubby Jay-Z AND a surprise album, Queen Bey became the highest earning woman in music last year! In the time it's taken you to read this paragraph, she's earned over $10! CRAY!
If you think Beyonce's earnings are crazy, wait until you see Dr Dre's bank balance! Thanks to a hugely lucrative deal with Apple, Dre's Beats headphones earned him a cool $620m! That's almost $20 A SECOND! That's roughly $100 for every time he breathes!
With her 'Prismatic' tour dominating all corners of the Earth, we're not surprised that Ms Perry was one of the top earning artists of 2014. 2014 saw her rake in $40m, or $1.27 per second - enough to keep you in Egyptian artefacts and birthday cake for a lifetime!
Nope, you don't have to get your eyes checked! The 20/20 Experience helped JT bag a smooth $57m last year!
Don't be fooled by that $37m income, she's still Jenny from the Block! (Albeit a much nicer block these days!). Every second in 2014 she made $1.17!
2014 may have been the year of 'Fake Drake' - but behind the fake moustache, the real Drake was bringing in $1.05 a second!
Pink is proof that putting on a spectacular tour, with mind-blowing acrobatics, and being a talented songstress can pay off! 2014 was a quiet year for the 'So What' singer, but with a cool $52m being deposited in her bank account, she was the third highest earning female artist in the world!
Every step he took, every breath he made, he earned $1.90 (assuming those things take a second each). The rapper earned an impressive $60 million in 2014.
