Beyonce Covers Forbes; Earnings Double Jay-Z's
Check out Beyonce on the cover of the June issue of Forbes magazine. The publication recently published their annual ‘Forbes Celebrity 100’ list, in which Beyonce came in at #4 with estimated earnings in excess of $87 within the last year (Angelina Jolie topped the ). Besides Bouncy’s album sales and tour earnings, a large proportion of this whopping figure comes from her endorsement deals with Nintendo, L’Oreal, Samantha Thavasa, Giorgio Armani fragrances, among others. {Source}
Interestingly, hubby Jay-Z slid down the list this year, sitting at #32. Turns out HOV is making roughly half of his missus. That said, while I’m sure this will get folk talking, it’s hardly unexpected. After all ‘Beyonce’ is more than an artist, she is a brand; a brand which has a major machine behind it. Nonetheless, it’s hardly a bad thing; both Bey and Jay are financially secure for life – individually, so I doubt they are loosing any sleep.
