Forbes Top 100 Celebs Comes with Drama

Taylor Swfit Falls to 49th

PHOENIX -
WHAT THE?
Forbes’ top 100 Highest Paid Celebrities list is full of changes and controversy.


THE DOWNLOAD
Forbes has released it’s yearly list of the highest paid celebrities. Sean “Diddy” Combs -- a.k.a. P.Diddy and Puff Daddy -- tops it at number one, due to a partnership with Smirnoff vodka, US World Tour, and selling 1/3 of his clothing line called Sean John. Beyoncé went from number 34 to spot number two on the list, a jump made possible by her Formation tour and new album, Lemonade. J.K Rowling made her way back onto the list this year with earnings from the Harry Potter theme parks as well as her newest book, Harry Potter and the Curse Child. Rowling landed her spot at number 3 on the list. Kylie Jenner is one newcomer to the list, making it at number 59, and is also the youngest on the list at just 19 years old. However, the representation of women on this list is minimal and causing people to reflect on society. Rowling and Beyoncé are the only women in the top ten, and the list overall has just 16 women.


WAIT ... THERE'S MORE
Last year's top earning celeb Taylor Swift fell to 49th place. Swift earned $170 million in 2015, but only an estimated $44 million in 2016.
