Forbes’ infamous list of highest-paid musicians just came out today. Nobody is surprised about who got the No. 1 spot, but people are shocked about who got a higher spot than Queen Bey and her boo Jay-Z.
Taylor Swift swooped up the No. 1 spot on the list – *shocker* – with a big $170 million. Next on the list was One Direction who earned $110 million. Who was really surprising was the boss herself Rihanna on the list at No. 5 earning $76.5 million. B*tch Better Have My Money? B*tch already has her money! The most shocking part is how she beat some of the music industry’s top dogs like Beyoncé coming in at No. 17, Jay-Z coming in after her, Dr. Dre at No. 25, and Drake last at No. 30.
The list calculates the money earned from June 1, 2015 to June 1, 2016 before fees and taxes. The numbers don’t lie. Rihanna came out as one of the fiercest – and richest – women in the game.
