Recently they released a list of the highest paid celebrities under the age of 30 and you'll NEVER guess the high rollers on the list.
TOP 3 (between 2011-2012)
Taylor Swift ($57M)
The 22-year old country singer topped the list, and it is reported that the bulk of her money comes from her countless amounts of sold-out concerts. (Each take in an average of $1 million dollars a night) WOW!
Justin Bieber ($55M)
18-year old Bieber is definitely THE MAN! Coming in second on the list, he reportedly pulled in $55 million dollars due to $12 million in album sales, concert appearances, endorsements from Proactiv, and also investments that he's made in numerous tech start-ups. He's a BUSINESS, MAN!
The 24-year old "We Found Love" singer came in number three on the list, despite her recent suit filed against accountants who allegedly stole a large portion of her earnings. Rihanna brought in $53 million dollars... and she's currently on vacation on her own private YACHT.
Here's some photos!
