Forbes crowns Sean Combs as highest-paid entertainer

The mogul skated past Beyoncé who landed at #2, earning a "paltry" $105 million in 2017.

The youngest celebrity on the list (which largely consisted of male sportspeople, boo) was 19 year-old Kylie Jenner. Forbes credits the reason for her success to her visual album, "Lemonade" and her lucrative Formation World Tour.

After being at No. 34 past year, Beyoncé takes the No. 2 spot with earnings totaling $105 million thanks to the Formation World Tour and Lemonade.

For the period from June 2016, the rapper earned $ 130 million, excluding taxes.

Diddy topped Forbes' annual list of highest-paid celebrities.

Entrepreneur and music artist Sean "Diddy" Combs secured the top spot on the Forbes list of Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Artists for the sixth consecutive year.

Drake made $94 million this year. Coming in at #1 is the immortal Diddy, who earned $130 million past year.

The number three spot was taken by none other than J.K. Rowling who added to her wealth her $95 million earnings.

According to the site, the "I Feel It Coming" singer has earned over 5.5 billion streams in the past two years, which then turned into a $75 million touring advance.

Swift's downfall on the list had a huge impact on the combined amount that the women on the list made this year.

This was only a $5.5 million drop from her various business and endorsements previous year, despite her social media blackout after the robbery in Paris.

This is seen in the film industry, which has 10 male actors on the list but not a single actress.
