Of course this talk show mogul is on the list. Oprah reportedly made $77 million in the past year after being knocked off the top spot for two years in a row. Her (once failing) television network has picked up in ratings and is predicted to bring in future profits for Winfrey.
Beyoncé earned a cool $53 million last year—while pregnant. Forbes confirmed the “Love On Top” singer turned businesswoman will be in the running for the top spot next year with her recent $50 million dollar Pepsi endorsement deal and the earnings from her sold out Mrs. Carter Tour.
Taylor Swift has 99 problems, but money isn't one. The country/pop starlet raked in $55 million from her endorsement deals with CoverGirl and Diet Coke. Add in her platinum selling album Red and that's enough to make any of her exes eat their hearts out.
This 55-year-old comedian has a lot to smile about. She made $56 million just by warming her audience hearts on her daytime talk show. Look out for her silver screen return as the voice of Dory in the sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory.
$125 million. Yes, you read that right. $125 million. That's how much the “Material Girl” banked from her MDNA tour from June 2012 to June 2013. Something tells us Madge won't be retiring anytime soon.
