Who's #1 on Forbes Top 100 List?

 
Posted July 1st, 2014 @ 8:16am

The Forbes Celebrity 100 List for 2014 was released yesterday and the Queen Bey still reigns. Beyonce topped the list thanks to her secret album drop, massive world tour, and business empire including deals with Pepsi and H&M. It doesn't hurt that the singer played 95 shows, bringing in an average $2.4 million per city, according to Pollstar.

The magazine ranked the celebs based on money and fame. Money was decided by talking to lawyers, producers, agents, and other entertainment big wigs to figure out how much the a-list made this year. As for fame, the mag counted the amount of times a person was mentioned or discussed as well as how popular they are on various social media platforms. 

Rounding out the top five is LeBron James and Dr. Dre round out the top three. James is the most famous man in the NBA and the magazine estimates he made $72-million last year. As for Dr.Dre, the producer made a whopping $620-million, thanks to Apple's purchase of his Beats headphones for $3-billion. Not too shabby. You can check out the top 10 below, and the rest of the list over at the "Forbes" website
