Diddy, Beyoncé, J.K. Rowling Take It To The Bank Among Highest-Paid Celebrities

By Barry Janoff

June 12, 2017: It pays to be a musician if you want to be among the highest-paid celebrities in the world.

The two highest-paid celebs in the world are in the music business — Sean "Diddy" Combs, who earned $130 million this past year, and Beyoncé, who made $105 million — and musicians make up five of the top eight highest paid celebrities, also including No. 4 Drake ($94 million), No. 6 The Weekend ($92 million) and No. 8 Coldplay ($88 million).

Musicians comprise 37% of the Top 100 and athletes 30% with the remainder considered actors, performers and/or in the media, topped by author J.K. Rowling at No. 3, who earned $95 million this past year, according to a new report from Forbes.

The earning period is June 1, 2016 through June 1, 2017.

Diddy stars in a new documentary, from Live Nation Productions, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story, an Apple Music exclusive schedule to debut June 25.

The documentary traces his rise from as a youth in Harlem and follows him during a three-week rehearsal session during which he reunites with members of his Bad Boy Records label for a sold-out show in Barclay’s Center, Brooklyn, according to Apple Music.

Among the athletes, the leading earners are No. 5 Cristiano Ronaldo ($93 million), No. 10 LeBron James ($86 million) and No. 14 Lionel Messi ($80 million).

In addition to Coldplay, top-earning groups over the past year include No. 11 Guns N’ Roses ($84 million), No. 21 Metallica ($66.5 million) and No. 32 Red Hot Chili Peppers ($54 million).

Musicians make up five of the top eight highest paid celebrities in the world: Diddy, Beyoncé, Drake, The Weekend and Coldplay.

Mark Wahlberg is Hollywood’s highest-paid actor, with $68 million (No. 20), followed by No. 22 Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson ($65 million) and No. 31 Vin Diesel ($54.5 million), according to Forbes.

There are no female athletes on the list. Serena Williams was the only woman athlete among the Top 100 Earning Athletes in the world in a recent Forbes report, coming in at No. 51 with some $27 million in tennis winnings and endorsements (but not including income from investments in such companies as Mission and the NFL’s Miami Dolphins).

The third highest-ranked woman in the Top 100 was Ellen DeGeneres (No. 16, $77 million), listed as a media "personality."

There was only one actress on the Forbes list: No. 58. Sofia Vergara ($41 million).
