American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, composer, entrepreneur and fashion designer, Kanye West is the highest-paid musician this year which is not really a surprice since he is now a billionaire.
Forbes has published its “Celebrity 100,” which shows the list of highest-paid celebrities. Kanye is the number one for all musicians in earnings, with Elton John sitting in a distant No. 2 ranking. Overall the top celebrity earner is Kylie Jenner, whose earnings is at $590 million, while West is second at $170 million.
Meanwhile, Elton John was second to West, taking in $81 million and Ariana Grande earned $72 million. Taylor Swift is on 7th spot.
Last Friday Forbes reported an article that Kylie Jenner had lied about the value of her cosmetics business. She fired back "what am i even waking up to. i thought this was a reputable site.. all i see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions lol. i’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER."
