The Forbes Celebrity 100 came out this week, and it highlights the world’s most powerful and wealthy celebrities. Keep in mind that earnings estimates are for June 1, 2009 to June 1, 2010 and includes dollars earned solely from entertainment income. Management, agent and attorney fees have not been deducted. There are some interesting facts. For example, Tween Queen Miley Cyrus brought in an impressive $48 million over the last year. Oprah earned an impressive (but typical for her) $315 million and was the most powerful celeb. This is Oprah’s fourth time at number 1. Newcomers to the list, James Cameron and Lady Gaga, were the third and fourth most powerful celebs with $210 million and $62 million, respectively. The beloved Sandra Bullock was the highest paid actress at $56 million (rank 8) while Beyonce was the highest ranking musician at $87 million (rank #2)
In preparing to write my posts, I often come across noteworthy and sometimes bizarre financial and business news. Below are links to some of these sites. Enjoy!
Recently, I participated in two carnivals: Carnival of Financial Planning – Edition #147 hosted by the The Skilled Investor and the Economic, Business, Credit, & Debit Round Up hosted by One Family’s Blog.
