Forbes Names ‘Entertainment’s Highest Earning Women’

Published: Wednesday 12th Oct 2011 by Sam

Today’s definition of a superstar is, for many, hard to measure. Indeed, for some, the term denotes one who is widely respected in their field. While for others, it’s those who snag the most column inches.

Helping clear the cloud is respected industry outlet Forbes, who use solid metrics – such as annual income – to push through any such ambiguity.

Today, the publication revealed the 2011 list of Entertainment’s Highest Earning Women (2010 – 2011).

Find out who made the list (and, perhaps most interestingly, who didn’t) after the jump…

Forbes’

‘Entertainment’s Highest Earning Women’ 2010-2011

1. Oprah Winfrey – $290 Million

2. Lady GaGa – $90 Million

3. Bethenny Frankel – $55 Million

4. Gisele Bundchen – $45 Million

5. Ellen Degeneres – $45 Million

6. Judge Judy – $45 Million

7. Taylor Swift – $45 Million

8. Katy Perry – $44 Million

9. Beyonce Knowles-Carter – $35 Million

10. Danielle Steele – $35 Million

Interesting!

Forbes lists typically make for a compelling read, yet this particular one is note-worthy on many a front. For both fascinating, yet unsurprising is the fact that Beyonce generated $35 Million…on her year off. Then there’s GaGa, who stays making huge year-on-year leaps. And then, of course, there’s Rihanna – who many were surprised to see failed to make the list at all.

We, however, anticipated this. All punchlines aside, let us school you for a second…

Unlike the Beyonce’s and GaGa’s of the world, Rihanna has little to no involvement in the creative crafting of her hits. As such, she looses out on the lucrative returns of those who song-write and/or produce.

While her endorsement deals stay stacking, the 360 nature of her record contract sees the label take a significant portion of profits. Profits, which are ultimately pumped back into Brand Rihanna (helping to facilitate the back to back albums, singles, and big budget videos). Of course, before that, the producers, writers, stylists, and tour promoters enlisted for her projects (which, lets face it, are never blockbuster sellers), are paid from the same piggybank.

Put simply, after all of that, Rihanna herself isn’t wheeling in as much $$$ as the smoke and mirrors would have you believe (even though she’s undoubtedly “set” for life).

Brand Beyonce and Brand GaGa have similar financial commitments (i.e. paying for videos, producers, and the like), yet secure places on lists such as this because they are involved in their creative process. They also stage wildly successful worldwide tours – something Ms. Fenty’s can’t say she’s done nor doing.

Until ol’ RiRi starts doing the aforementioned, her team will continue spinning stories of her “superstardom”. Of course, based on Single sales and success. Neither of which suggest her relevancy in 5 years time.

In any case, congratulations to named ladies!

    What does Rihanna have to do with this article? She isn’t even mentioned….

  2. jill October 12, 2011

    Lady Gaga oh yes, where’s r******? lol

  3. that_lala October 12, 2011

    GaGa gettn that paper.she got a minute before she gets to that Oprah Winfrey status!!! 🙂

  4. jerom October 12, 2011

    ok right.. did any1 argue Rihanna is supposed to be on the list, why the tupid rant? kmt

  5. Kimberly October 12, 2011

    Beyonce …35 million on her year off ! no touring no album. does Beyonce have to work at all? that’s crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Girl you need to rest

  6. Imgunnacheckuboo October 12, 2011

    Do a list of most talented/original women and let’s see where everyone on that list ends up.

  7. Chillin October 12, 2011

    @ ?? he is telling you why she isnt mentioned..read carefully

  8. ?? October 12, 2011

    @ CHILLIN

    No, he is trying to get comments by writing about Rihanna on an article where her name isn’t mentioned. Nobody was previously making claims that she was one of the Highest Paid Women in Entertainment.

    So, there was no precedent for this argument. It was just simply another ploy at comments and aimless traffic.

  9. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) October 12, 2011

    I am not a Rihanna fan but you seriously just wrote an essay about her when she’s not even included in the list?? 😐 😕

    And what the hell is up with the Beyonce over-praise again??Her year off??Didn’t she come back in April 2011, 6 months ago??So, she has been in the industry for 40-50% of the time that this list concerns.How was it her year off??Honestly, there are many a compliment that one can give to Beyonce and she gives you 1,000 reasons to praise her, yet somehow people always choose to praise her for the wrong reasons.And of course that kind of praise leads people that are not worshipping her to shade her… 😕

    Anyway, congratulations to all the 10 ladies that made it to the list, and some immense, gigantic creidt is due for Oprah Winfrey who earned more than the rest of the top 5 put together 😯 *bows down*

  10. Kimberly October 12, 2011

    sam don’t worry she will sure make the list when she doesn’t have too much to pay to directors, producers, songwirters, managers, etc.
    LA REID IS A GREEDY MONKEY. HE IS THE ONE TAKING ALL THE MONEY. I believe she will one year..it;s kinda weird that Justin Bieber did and Taylor swift who basically tours the US did make the list.

    I’ve BEEN said it: Gaga is a beast! Will I buy her CD/Concert Ticket? Hell NO! But it is, what it is..!! In just 2-short years, she’s managed to come-outta “no where” to now cut-into-half of Beyonce’s ‘Mainstream’ demographic.

    Rihanna..?! Meh.. She’s finished! Nicki Minaj has “come for” and TOOK her place!

    X,Y,”and Z”

  13. DTG October 12, 2011

    Rihanna is not a powerful woman in the industry, she’s a record label created puppet…and gets an allowance, like any little kid.

  14. drfenty October 12, 2011

    for a list that doesn’t include rihanna AT ALL, its a bit strange she becomes the central focus of the whole post.

  15. gag little mini me October 12, 2011

    BOTH OF MY GIRLS MADE IT THE LIST OH MY GOD@BEYONCE MADE THE LIST AND TOOK 1YEAR OFF NO WONDER THE HATERZ MAD AND MAKING UP LIES LOL…BEYSUS AND GODGA4LYF

  16. thetruth October 12, 2011

    I thought the article was going to be more about who’s on the list….not who’s missing from it. #PRESSED

  17. KERRON October 12, 2011

    Thats the thing about this blog other blogs rely on real content to give them comments and views….however TGJ has figured out that there are alot of people out there that has nothing to do…..So rihanna became the target she could be digging her ass and it will be a post….

  18. KeriStan October 12, 2011

    @Asap, the list is for 2010-2011 meaning Jan 2010-Jan 2011 which does not include “April 2011” (-_-) . If this “essay” as you all call it wasn’t mentioned you guys would have made comments about so stop the b*******….y’all would’ve been dropping numbers and trying to create your own facts.

  19. NICKI MINAJ October 12, 2011

    f*** rihanna that b**** was worthless on my single because it wasnt a dance record .

  20. Kimberly October 12, 2011

    i didn’t want to say it but it seems like these fans opened this page hoping that their favorite would be there? Haters get lost. Isn’t she a female in music and claimed by her fans as the best and all on top, then it was quit surprising. That is no shade, it is just that sam is staing his reason why she is not there. well next time? if justin beiber was on the top 100 then she can too. no need to act up all stupid.

  21. NICKI MINAJ October 12, 2011

    f*** rhianna that b**** was worthless on my single because it wasnt a dance record .

  22. KERRON October 12, 2011

    And does force people to put her name on records that she didnt have anything to with, or request that she be name as a write just because she was in the studio or change “is” to “are”….as some ….further more rihanna name has never been call as one who steals song

    Shall not call anynames

    GaGa gettn that paper.she got a minute before she gets to that Oprah Winfrey status!!! 🙂
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    <B?You're crazy. Gaga will never be in Oprah's ballpark earnings. Oprah earned $200 million more than she did last year. LMAO!

  24. Those That Cannot Do, Stan October 12, 2011

    Dude…you mention Gaga and Beyonce in 1 paragraph and then discuss Rihanna for multiple paragraphs for a response no one even made?

    …you need to be schooled on obsession because you just embarrassed yourself.

  25. tyler October 12, 2011

    i doubt rihanna cares about this list. As long as she got a nice car a nice house and money to spend and #1 singles and millions of albums sold WHO THE F*** CARES.

    i say the same about keri hilson… i doubt some of these celebs really care about that. most of em only care about being set for life financially. if i was a singer i would not care about forbes list all i would care about is MY money. yall make it like rihanna beyonce keri hilson and gaga etc…. are all just having miserable times all these women dont even know yall exist and are drinkin fine wines and dining and living their dreams while once again yall are sitting behind a computer talking s*** probably eating ramen noodles for breakfast lunch and dinner. smh….

    P.S. Dayum to katy perry i must admit tho. I did not see that 44 million coming

  26. beyoncititus October 12, 2011

    This f****** information is old. That t***** gayga needs to die with her old ass. Bey is da queen and she will always reign above you b****** and your favs. and whats it got 2 do with Rihgoat r*****

  27. maria October 12, 2011

    Rihanna fans clicked on the post, because they thought she would of been on the list. If Lady Gaga or Bey didn’t make the list and rihanna did, they would be throwing sales, singles all over the place.

    Rihanna doesn’t get ALL that money from her singles, her tour is not even the hottest selling tour like Britney’s was. No one in the industry talks about her having talent.
    Go support her “SIX” album Talk that Talk , november 1st.

    Nicki came for Rihanna spot, in two years we’re going to be like rihanna who?

    Nicki Minaj- take over 2012

  28. WTF October 12, 2011

    You never see Mary J. Blige, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, or any other R&B singer on this list.

    Beyonce is QUEEN

    I done got so sick and filthy with Benji’s, I can’t spend
    How you gone be talkin’ s***?
    You act like I just got up in it
    Been the number one diva in this game for a minute

  29. DUNKFAN October 12, 2011

    You would expect RiRi to be on this list since she has more hits then Beyonce and Gaga.

  30. maria October 12, 2011

  31. tyra October 12, 2011

    ALRITE WE GET IT U DNT LIKE RIHANNA BUT FOR ARGUMENTS SAKE WHY HAS RIHANNA NOT GRACED THE FORBES LIST YET I MEAN EVEN KATY PERRY IS ON THE LIST AND I KNOW RIHANNA IS BIGGER STAR THAN HER AND ALSO TAYLOR SWIFT SHE MOSTLY SELLS IN THE US AND TOURS IN THE US CAN SOME EXPLAIN TO ME IS IT SOIN TO DO WITH THE WAY RIHANNA CONTRACT RUNS?

  32. maria October 12, 2011

    @DUNKFAN

    oh we’re going by singles now?
    how about albums……..Rihanna label takes her singles money. Without Def Jam should would be nothing. Her team is everything.

  33. KINGB BISH October 12, 2011

  34. bey is god October 12, 2011

    Damn bey took a years break and still made. More money than rihanna lmao

  35. Yellow Gorillah October 12, 2011

    Until Rihanna Starts to Co- Write, or Co-Produce her songs and album she will NOT! Be on Forbes list

    But To be honest I don’t think most of the Navy Member’s CARE if she is on this list or not because at the end of the day fan or hater Rihanna still makes more money then US! and she still breaks records and her albums sale but it is true what sam is saying even though there was no need for him to write a essay on her when she was not even the main topic. She needs to starts putting her NAME on every song but I don’t want her to be Beyonce who steals song credits. I really want her to get involved in her craft but I just don’t think rihanna ha sit in her. Some Have what it takes to write songs other’s don’t. I would rather rihanna NOT write her own songs then her TRY and come up with s*** mediocre stuff

    She really needs to get a new deal this 360 deal works but if she want’s to see Lady Gaga money she needs to start writing and really getting Involved with EVERY project.

    And Laugh Out Loud at Forbes List stan! I

  36. wt. October 12, 2011

    i thought i would see Lil kim name up there,this is b,llsh.it,no one in this game is caking like Lil kim she is doing her thing on the down low this site always be fighting against her…and f.ck nicki minaj she is the one who is fighting against lil kim and these blugs.

  37. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) October 12, 2011

    @KERI STAN The list concerns the time period from May 2010 to May 2011.Where did you read about January??That doesn’t even make sense! 😐 Check your facts.From May 2010 to May 2011 Beyonce was still getting an income from her perfume sales (don’t remember the name of the perfume), she was booklng campaigns, she released her tour DVD and she had a single out (not that she gained much from it 😳 ), so the year-off praise is straight up b*******

  38. aaron October 12, 2011

    Beyonce LIES about being involved in the creative process… I doubt she actually wrote more than a few words of 4… i’d rather artists be truthful about their work like Rihanna and Britney cause the few times they do write, they actually write.

  39. JER October 12, 2011

    There was no need to even mention Rihanna. As always, ThatBeYAWNcePussJuice always desperate to throw some shade

  41. Kimmy October 12, 2011

    Well for one Taylor swift sells albums over million in a week, her tour ends up sold out.

  46. Lovely October 12, 2011

    This post is a mess already.

  47. tyra October 12, 2011

    @ yellow gorilla what sam was trying to say is regardless of all those things because of the deal she gets a large chunk of that going to covering the cost of studio time producers songwriters etc….. plus not only def jam re couping thier money but roc nation as well cse she under their managment so rihanna needs to get a clue and start building a brand that actually sees her on the forbes list she is too much of a big star to not even be in the top ten

  48. ?? October 12, 2011

    @ YELLOW GORILLAH

    Actually, Lady Gaga and Beyonce end up making the vast majority of their money from endorsements, promotions, and deals. Lady Gaga has deals with Polaroid, Virgin Mobile, and Beyonce has had standing deals with companies like L’Oreal.

    At the end of the day, record labels still reap the vast majority of proceedings from albums and tours, regardless of the amount of creative control an artist commissions. Otherwise, labels would not pick up artists like Lady Gaga, who often demand to write, co-produce, and direct a lot of their material.

    @ DUNKFAN

    This is not true; if this was the case, Mariah Carey would be on the list since she has more #1 singles than Beyonce, Lady Gaga, or Taylor Swift. But she’s not. Because this is not true. Celebrity income is largely determined by promotions, endorsements, and deals.

    But really, this brings me back to my main point: there was no reason to bring up Rihanna in this article because there’s no point. Sam spends so much time talking about talent, but forgets to bring up the very people who he claims have talent. Beyonce and Lady Gaga are very talented, yet this article quickly shifts to Rihanna. Sam and That Grape Juice are so critical of the people who push artists like Rihanna to the forefront, but end up pushing Rihanna to the forefront themselves.

    It is excellent to note that when TGJ spends time focusing on their so-called “talented” artists, they commission far less traffic than posts on Rihanna or other artists they don’t like. Which is exactly why they spent so much time morphing this article into a Rihanna piece than focusing on the artists at hand.

  49. Lovely October 12, 2011

    Promotion, songwriters, producers…..that’s MILLIONS of dollars! This is the artist estimation AFTER they pay that stuff off. So I can understand why Rihanna isn’t on the list, since she didn’t have too much hand in “Loud”, and on top of that she has ANOTHER album coming out. Which means more songwriters, producers, and promotion. It pays to be involved with your music. Just saying. But I still believe that “Rated R” was Rihanna’s best era (Musically)

  50. Lovely October 12, 2011

    And let’s be fair. If Rihanna made this list, and Beyonce or Gaga didn’t the navy would’ve been throwing shade and sales up and down this damn post. I’m sure Rihanna will make it next year. But congrats to all that made the list.

  51. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) October 12, 2011

    I really don’t care about lists , really !!

    and Rihanna to be mentioned here prove my point :

    RIHANNA IS THE BEST , f*** the rest 😆

  52. TinaMinaj October 12, 2011

    Well i guess Rihanna and her fans can “TALK THAT TALK” themselves while the other relevant artists keep getting that bank.

    @ Aaron you’re just bitter your fave didn’t make the list. Saying Beyonce lies but still she gets the money. Enlighten everyone by telling us how thats possible???? Some people are just loons.

    Anyway bet NICKIMINAJ makes the list before Rih hahahaha. GO NICKI!!!!

  53. TinaMinaj October 12, 2011

    Pop Royalty then i guess all her no.1s are SHHHHIIIITTT aswel coz lists don’t matter. Try again you dumbass. Go crawl into a hole and lick your wounds.

  54. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) October 12, 2011

    B**** please … 🙄

  55. sean October 12, 2011

    ur statement about rihanna izzz sooo not necessary stop hate on rihanna allow her to shine how u didnt mention that britney spears has done more yet she aint on the list???? stop hating on ppl its not nice

  56. Gilberto October 12, 2011

    Beyoncé made $35 million between May 2010 and May 2011!!! No tour, no album, no single. But in other hand, Beyoncé’s maind (aka Rihanna) had two albums charting (Rated R and Loud), world tour, many hits and she is no where to be found on Forbes’ list. Even Katy Perry made it? And she’s a damn single artist. LOL. I can’t.

  57. Lax October 12, 2011

    RIHANNA MADE 29 MILLION LOOK IT UP She will make it next year you can bet on it i can name 40 who RIHANNA MADE MORE PAPER THAN STARTING WITH THE LETTET A THROUGH Z!!!!

  58. BEYONCESTANALLTHEWAY October 12, 2011

    The real reason why Rihanna ain’t on the list is because she is too dumb and they cheat her out of her money. And i know Beyonce is behind it….May owns Rihanna and Beyonce makes sure she ain’t messing with her hubby’s money.

  59. WHAT? October 12, 2011

    beyonce is fading she had perfume clothing lines and dvds thats why she is still rich

  60. rihanna stan October 12, 2011

    beyonce 35 million damn she is broke compared to gaga

  61. selly October 12, 2011

    What!! The Navy don’t care? Then why are they always on blogs throwing out numbers. Rihanna sold 6mil albums WW, the #1 singles, magazine covers etc. You people don’t understand that her record label takes alot of her money as well as writers,dicectors,produces,making the music to the already written songs, background stage for her tours,promo & air flight, hotel for all her staff, video’s her ft. on her songs. L.A. Reid I sure she still owes til this day big time. Rated R did not do that well and her record label put alot of money out for it thinking it would make a mint because of the incident.

    Navy now I really think it’s time for you to stop all that bragging because if Beyonce on the list for 35mil then I thinking Rihanna is somewhere in the neighbor of 11-15mil Anyway Congrat to the 10 people on the list

  62. Lax October 12, 2011

    lOOK AT THE MANY ENDORSEMENT THAT BEYONCE HAS AND BEYONCE IS A VETERAN COMPARED TO Rihanna compare the other 40 artists with Rihanna
    Please and less see whos on top. Bring up the richest artis under 30 i bet rih is on that list? Shes doing good and will do better, watch

  63. Ms Lovely October 12, 2011

    LMAO @ RIHANNA NAVY. MAD AND UPSET COZ RIHANNA DIDN’T MAKE THE LIST. BEYONCE DOESN’T NEED SONGWRITING OR PRODUCING TO MAKE MONEY. SHE HAS TOPNOTCH ENDORSEMENT DEALS AND BUSINESS VENTURES THAT PAY MAJORLY. HER LO’REAL CONTRACT(1OYRS AND COUNTING) , HER FRAGRANCES(HEAT GROSSED A 100MIL+ IN SALES ACCORDING TO COTY), HER CLOTHING LINE(YES DERON IS STILL SELLING), HER SUCCESSFUL DVDS(HER TOUR DVD WAS THE BEST SELLING TOUR DVD OF 2010). THE LIST JUST GOES ON WITH BEYONCE.

    RIHANNA COULDN’T EVEN MAINTAIN HER COVERGIRL CONTRACT,AND GOT EASILY REPLACED BY TAYLOR SWIFT. LMAOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!1

    I’m confused, does having more money prove your better than someone?? and why is Rihanna even mentioned??? Completely lost here, anyway fact is Rihanna has been relevant since she came out, beyonce and gaga are getting played out, they needed this little achievement! So congrats to the fading stars blabla and beyawnce! all hail the new queen Rihanna, talk that talk will be snatching wigs left and right! Rihanna recently broke records held by Mariah Carey and Madonna, she will be outselling michael and mary soon, and judging by talk that talk cover she’s coming for beyonce!

  70. selly October 12, 2011

    @Lax

    But seriously – not needed, not wanted, not required.

    You have a good site with good articles and pretty up to date reliable information, yet you CONTINUALLY ruin it by shading Rihanna and bringing her into articles that are not only not about her, but completely nothing to do with her.

    Okay, so she didn’t make the list. If you want to comment (it is your site after all) then do so, BRIEFLY. But you continual shade on her is making me not want to read the site any more. None more than this one.

    So please I ask you to cease this activity or you will loose your readers

    1 more and I’m gone and taking my 3 flatmates with me (by blocking this URL)

    @lax you need help!!! You’re not making much sense. Under 30????? TAYLOR SWIFT IS YOUNGER THAN HER YOU DUMBASS!!!! And guess what she still made the list!!!! You can follow pop royalty intpo the grieving cave!!

    Thank God Nicki decided to do superbass before fly coz Rih does nothing for it!!!

  77. CRAZYWORLD October 12, 2011

    RIhanna made 29 mil thats why she snot on it. She made the other forbes list under 30 with 29 which is less than the rest made.

    Her tour broke records in europe UNLIKE bey or gaga and her album sold 6 mil unlike Bey with her 4 not even reaching 2mi.

    so let me skool ya

    Really, you’re a nobody with a small site. She’s an International Superstar touring the World, meeting amazing people, earning millions, winning awards and creating music that people enjoy.

    So really, who’s got the last laugh. Her. You’re simply a bitter old queen. If you TRULY feel that she is a talentless model or however you describe her, then have a site-wide ban on her and that will be the end of it.

    JUST SAD AND BITTER

    people think having more money than someone makes them a flop.

  81. wangy October 12, 2011

    i agree that people sell s** to get rich look at rihanna beyonce and kelly

  82. Sherry October 12, 2011

    A few years ago, there was an issue between Rihanna and her label after the mega success of Umbrella/GGGB era. It made millions but with her contract, she wasn’t reaping the rewards. The label got a majority of her profits. Also, I’ve noticed a sort of shift in branding. Where they are not going out there to “protect her brand” so to speak as they used to. She makes tons of hits, sells millions of records yet she doesn’t make the Forbes cut. That should be an alarm. Many artists have gone through this. TLC classic example back in the 90s. Had several number one hits, number one cd, but LA Reid and their label gave them such a messed up contract they had to file for bankruptcy. If I was RiRi, I’d take a break after this cd and take a look at the fine print.

  83. Lax October 12, 2011

    With over 6million sold on “LOUD” and counting i love how many keep saying that rihanna is paying all of her money out. Keep thinking that Then if that be true remember that all artist has bills, and bills . Rihanna keeps getting them endorsements and she keeps working her buns off and it is not about all the mill,ions but it is about Millions and shes making them. Beyonce has a CLOTHING COMPANY AND RUNS A EMPIRE SHE HAS OVER 400 PEOPLE Working for her and has been in the industry for well over 15 years and counting and shes married to jay who is rich as country butter Rihanna might be under 30 million but you can bet your sweet ass that RIHANNA Is quietly bring it up the rear. And another thing RIHANNA WON THE mobe award for 2011 october 5, 20112
    For Best International ACT
    Haters Bring up Your Fave And see what they Earned?????? Bring up the many other ARTIST And see Who else made $$$$$$ RIHANNA Is talked about in a Negative way always so what else is new and i am happy because i know that she has got it going on and if Beyonce makes more than she does from now on it does not in any way make RIHANNA Any less of a person aND JUST LIKE
    lady gaga bEAT BEYONCE BY Leaps and bounds there will be others who or going to come out of the wook works. Bring up Usher, cb, jojo, kelly, mischells, ciara, monica, maryj, tank, kenya, nicki, adele, keri,, Go on bring them up and see
    for yourself where they rate. And from now on til the End of time RIHANNA IS GOING TO BE A throne in many sides, watch,,,I DON’T HAVE TIME TO PROFF READ sOME OF YOU English Teac her do the spell check for me, thanks

  88. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 12, 2011

    If you’re fav isn’t on the list I’m guessing it’s because they are not entrepreneurs. When you work for people and are under limited contracts like rihanna or britney you not making the list. You are just a product to the industry. No shade. I love both of them but I will speak the truth til I die.

  89. Auntie Jackie October 12, 2011

    She didn’t need to be injected into this post, but he-aint-never-lied. She doesn’t make as much money as she could, especially being signed to a 360 deal. But, she’s doing just fine.

  90. RICHANDBLACK11 October 12, 2011

    @Lax…stop it with your Essay…some of yall Rihanna stan love to reach for the stars.

  91. RICHANDBLACK11 October 12, 2011

    Rihanna can be on the list too if she wasn’t so lazy

  92. please! October 12, 2011

    Just stop it! Rihanna is making alot of money this is true but her record label is taking a big amount of it. Rihanna don’t know s*** about the business because she has people doing everything for her like handling her money and that’s ashame. With all that she been doing, all the money she making and still did not make the forbes list. Something is very wrong with that picture. They are stealing from her and she don’t even know because she don’t handle her own money. SMDH

  93. RosaRubbel October 12, 2011

    Taylor Swift? Wow! Congratulations girl! I didn’t expect her on that list!
    Congratulations to the rest also, especially Beyoncé, GaGa and Oprah! 😉

  95. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE IS A STAR-RA. October 12, 2011

    The GREAT LACEFRONCE sees THREE gimmicks with SHITE music on this list & that is T***** Caca, BLEACHonce & Discount Perry 😕

    So sad that music is in such a state

  96. please! October 12, 2011

    When your record label do alot of underhanded s*** like payola, Rihanna have to pay that money back probably with interest. Yes she is a MegaStar but she not getting MegaMoney for all her hard work. Oprah said it best learn to manage your own money Years ago the person managing her money was stealing from her

  97. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 12, 2011

    Oprah without a DOUBT was gonna be on that list. That woman works hard. And gaga too! I was kinda skeptical about beyonce cuz she has a good team but I guess she works hard too and gets a lot of endorsements. I secretly wish I had her kind of money! Go girl.

  98. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 12, 2011

    @the great lacefronce no music is shittier than khia’s and aflopanti. They are both hasbeens. Well, actually that’s an overstatement for khia. She’s a NEVER WILL BE. Lmao.

  99. beyoncititus October 12, 2011

    the Great Lacefronce is f***** obsessed with Beyonce. He even has his name written after her. B**** you ain’t falling anyone with your fake ass self. Bey be slayin and you h*** better watch out!!

  100. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie + Amy Winehouse +Steve Jobs) October 12, 2011

    YAWN . . .

    Rihanna isn’t on the list because Loud tour money wasn’t taken into consideration. This is just a rehash of their celeb 100 list. We already know Rihanna made 29M touring off of Rated R/ Last Girl on Earth because she was on “under 30 list”

    Try harder TGJ

  102. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie + Amy Winehouse +Steve Jobs) October 12, 2011

    And to all you genius talking about “oh Rihanna has to pay so and so royalties and blah, blah, blah,” Reading is Fundamental. Forbes ranks according to GROSS not NET, which means that they look at how much money was raked it BEFORE everyone gets their cut.

  112. commanderofthedancefloor October 12, 2011

    and to just clear this up, beyonce was working last year, she just didn’t release an album or go on tour, you remeber, her clothing line, her various perfumes, and her concert dvd thing, so beyonce wasn’t doing nothing she just wasn’t doing anything music related.

    from-@ASAP:
    @KERI STAN The list concerns the time period from May 2010 to May 2011.Where did you read about January??That doesn’t even make sense! Check your facts.From May 2010 to May 2011 Beyonce was still getting an income from her perfume sales (don’t remember the name of the perfume), she was booklng campaigns, she released her tour DVD and she had a single out (not that she gained much from it ), so the year-off praise is straight up b*******

    Fine,but wasn’t Rihanna doing the SAME (and even more) around that period? how come she didn’t make more or a similar amount as Bey did? Beyonce was mainly on a year off i.e not doing music from May 2010 til beginning of April 2011 which is where the bulk of her money comes from! music and touring! STOP TRYNNA BRING BEY DOWN! SHE MADE MORE MONEY THAN RIHANNA AND A LOT OTHER “BIG ARTISTS” OR ARTISTS WHO HAVE MORE HITS THAN HER DID IN A YEAR SHE WASN’T MUSICALLY ACTIVE!. DEAL !

    This is EXACTLY what I was gonna point out, I really do believe Rih is just a CASH COW & EVERYBODY from Rih’s baby Brother to Beyonce’s Fetus is getting $$$$ From her 😆 Poor girl is probably to STEPID to read a contract (or much less write a song) 😕

    & I DOUBT she makes the list NEXT year either, last year she was doing all the same thing shes doing now (touring, Deals, Sells etc) so WHY would the following year be any different? 😕

    @Ima
    Girl, stop. Please. All of Lil Kims albums are platinum sweety, her Naked Truth album rcieved 5 mics, NO OTHER FEMALE MC has done that to this DAY. Cut the comparisons, Lil Kim is in a legendary lane, lt’s not forget lil kim has a grammy, does nicki? I didn’t think so. Just stop with the b*******. You are embarrasing yourself. You want to know why your nicki is so succesfull? She’s a motherfucking POP artist. That’s why. WHITE people are buying her damn s***. The f***? She aint no real MC, she may have USED to be, but even when she USED to be one, she couldnt come close to LIL KIMS status when it comes to being a respectable MC. Maybe that’s why nicki covered SO many of her songs. Nicki wanted to BE kim, no she’s trying to front like she never wanted to. You are so pathetic. Oh, and that stank attitude? Yeah, it’s DESERVED because that NICKI you stan for STOLE lil kims whole image and dissed her way to the f****** top. Open your damn eyes. Lil kim hasnt talked abou Nicki in MONTHS, yet nicki JUST released a song dissing her. Who’s the pressed one? Oh okay. Of course nicki is gonna have more twitter followers than kim b****, kim didnt make a twitter until middle to end of last year. Nicki BEEN had one. Who the f*** cares about twitter anyway? Just shut your damn mouth, keep lil kim’s d*** out your mouth. PLEASE.

    Taylor earned 10 million more thane beyonce without having to grind her p**** or shake her ass.. I think your are very mad at that.

    When Beyonce can make money without selling s**.. come back to me yeah? S** will always sell.. Its simple as hell.

  158. Vegas girl October 12, 2011

    It’s pretty apparent as to why Rihanna was mentioned … Because some on here like to mention that she is getting paid and anyone who says different are just “haters”. In fact the argument about her finances and talent are discussed EVERYDAY. The article was used as a ” told ya so” from Sam.

    while no one knows what the artists are earning I guess this list is supposed to give
    us an idea. How the 360 deal was described is pretty correct and IF she is signed to something like that she will be famous WAY before she’s rich. In the business the artist is the last one to get paid unless they are producing and/or writing…period. Show business is smoke and mirrors but she’s not the only one, they all do it.

  159. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN October 12, 2011

    @S***(U MAD ?)

    I find Beyonce bland tbh… It’s all a matter of opinion.

    Also talking of vids.. You belong with me beat the singles ladies to best video!

    Also Taylors second album had sales of 570,000 in its first week months before kanye said what he did… So she was allready famous and out selling a lot of artists.

  160. Vegas girl October 12, 2011

    Also the 360 deal thing, labels take a chunk of the money from any endorsement deal because they basically set it up. Anyone can go online and find info on these deals, they bite artists in the b*** because they get alot of support and exposure but they lose out on the money end usually. Wow to Katy perry though, who knew?

  161. gag little mini me October 12, 2011

    gaga is worth $115million with her fortune….beyonce is worth $325million with her fortune…both of my girls are paid who the f*** mad

  162. whystillinbusiness October 12, 2011

    Rihanna brings out albums every six months, as you stans say it she be slaying. She is working for peanuts and everything goes into her head. Just like her talent, it dont exist. But I do believe she made this list but she is just lower as should be. Rihanna is cute, nothing more! People used to talk about Beyonce coming out all the time but this girl is crazy, but I think she is trying to work another deal cause her six albums will be up and maybe she can work out something better for her self but I think not cause they no the tricks that was used to keep her here!

  163. LTM October 12, 2011

    Katy Perry earned more than Beyonce? Wow.

  164. Alex October 12, 2011

    and ur an expert because??? u talk alot of s*** and throw alot of shade at rih… she made 29mil last year, how much do u make per year of ur hate??? and for the record beyonce at 23 wasn’t making forbes list so stfu .

  166. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 12, 2011

    i DIDN’T READ THE LONG ESSAYS FOR ME. MADONNALOVER AND ARMY, U MUST BE RETARDED. IT TOOK KIM YEARS FOR THOSE ALBUMS TO GO PLATINUM. NICKI PLATINUM IN ONLY A FEW WEEKS AND NUMBER 1. NOW SUCK ON DAT ONE, H**. IT MUST HURT TO SELL YA ALBUM ON PAYPAL.

  167. Alex October 12, 2011

    @LTM

    Actually that isn’t surprising.

    Katy Perry was supposed to be in the top 5 AT LEAST.

    5 #1’s “sold out” concerts and what not.

    Yet she only earned a mere 55 million?

    Wow. Now that is something to say “wow” about.

    Beyonce had no top 10 hits just one album and no tour and she earned f****** 35 million!??!?

    Wow.

    And Sam or whoever runs this post you should have mentioned how Britney also didn’t make the list. And how people are basically over her.

    Like a new album and even a new tour and she didn’t eve place in the top 10. It’s Mizz Britney Spears.

    Haha. 🙂

    PAWS UP MONSTERS!!!! (“)(“)

  168. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 12, 2011

    And Lol at people saying kim won a grammy when the song was only hot cuz of christina aguilera and the other ones cuz the girl got pipes. The rest of non muthafuckin factors. And sweetie, the grammy’s not the only awards that exist. If you compare nicki’s wins in diverse categories compared to kim you would see nicki has won more accolades in her 1-2 career than kim has won in her entire borin 10 year career.

  169. Jasmine October 12, 2011

    Why was this whole post about Rihanna? I think the post should be about Ms. Winfrey. That’s the queen baller on that list because she is consistently #1 highest female entertainment earner year after year. If you do the math she would have to be worth almost 2 billion by now. The reference to Beyonce taking a year off is not true. Beyonce is a very hard worker and during that year she worked on several projects and endorsements…ie…why she is on the list. If she really took a year off and did nothing she would not be on the list like Madonna is not on there since she was not working last year.

  170. Dezi October 13, 2011

    Rihanna is doing pretty good for a 23 year old she is rich, beautiful and having fun let her be. As for the person bringing michael jackson and mary j blige into this. Michael and mary have already proved their point years ago. Michael proved his with thriller which still remains the biggest and best selling album to date. Mary has sold millions of records herself so it’s pretty pointless to bring legends into this. If rihanna out-sells both mary and michael …. congrats to her she is hot right now — let rihanna have her fun she isn’t hurting anyone.

  171. Bobby Bulgaria October 13, 2011

    But damnn, Lady Gaga is number 2?? Like really?!!!!!

  174. camden October 13, 2011

    Wait..didn’t. Rihanna already made that list @ 29 million for same period 2010-2011. Rihanna still made bank. Plus why no one saying how GaGa is slaying Bey,since she’s been in the biz for 13 plus years. How u all explain that one. At least with Rihanna her yearly sales are growing unlike Bey..who went from making 89 million on the last list to 35 mil. Who does that?

  175. beyoncititus October 13, 2011

    Once again Bey be dustin off dem grammys!!!

  178. ME October 13, 2011

    Rihanna is 23 years old and I’m sure she made over 20 millions last year… so just because she’s not on the list, doesnt mean she has failed. Beyonce wasn’t on this list when she was 23 either… U guys stay hating on that girl. It’s really not a good look when your personal feelings intertwines with your professional work.

  179. ME October 13, 2011

    and all these Bey stans that think she is God… should go jump off a cliff so you can be with her in the after life.

  182. Clark Smith October 13, 2011

    You guys seem to get kind of angry over irrelevent s***. You should all vist Stan Wars.com

    It is asite devoted to eliminatng stanhood.

  183. ok. October 13, 2011

    Who cares if Rihanna isn’t on the list. Do you see how be she is, she is superstardom! She never stops and you have to credit her dedication to keep her fans satisfied in the music industry. So don’t dog her.

  184. Small_Angel October 19, 2011

    Not a Rihanna fan but why mention her here in this post?
    Why not focus on Beyonce and Lady gaga. Celebrate their success.
    Why do is it neccessary to put rihanna down?
    I guess this post is the most irrelevant, ever!
