Yonce all on his mouth like, liquor, like, like liquor… Yup! That’s what the execs at Forbes are saying! Beyoncé has been named the most powerful celebrity in the world on Forbes’ annual Celebrity 100 list. The Queen Bey has her massive tour to thank for helping her beat out LeBron James, Dr Dre and even Oprah. According to Forbes, the star amassed a small fortune from her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour 2014 which made on average an amazing $2.4 million at each one of its 95 stops. That combined with a number one self-titled album – which reached the top with little promotion – and a platinum single Drunk In Love cemented her status.
But of course, you do not get to be the queen without diversifying and the mother of one – two-year-old Blue Ivy – also made sure she was on top thanks to her entrepreneurial pursuits including partnerships with H&M and Pepsi and her clothing and fragrance lines. In all, the pop star made what Forbes estimated $115 million between June 1, 2013 and June 1, 2014. But not only is she the top celebrity and top female celebrity, she is also one half of the most powerful celebrity couple. While Beyoncé may have ranked higher than her partner Jay Z, together they are the king and queen of pop culture. Jay was named in sixth place with an estimated $60 million in earnings from his latest album, Magna Carta, his label Roc Nation and his businesses which include his 40/40 nightclub chain and D’Ussé cognac.
