Beyoncé really does run the world—at least according to Forbes. Queen Bey took the No. 1 spot on the magazine’s annual Celebrity 100 list, earning a reported $115 million in 2014. Who else made the top 10? LeBron James (#2), Oprah (who topped the list last year, but dropped to #4), Rihanna (#8), and Katy Perry (#9). Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z, came in at No. 6, earning less than half of Beyoncé’s salary—though his $60 million doesn’t exactly seem paltry. The news arrives just in time for Bey and Jay’s Diesel-fueled On the Run tour.
Of the top twenty-five earners, Forbes notes that thirteen are musicians. The likes of Dr. Dre, Bruno Mars, Miley Cyrus, and Taylor Swift have greatly increased their earning potential in recent years due to strong social media presences. #$$$.
If the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show didn’t solidify Saint Laurent’s place as the official fashion house of the music biz, we don’t know what will. Creative director Hedi Slimane has long dressed (and been pals with) mega pop and rock stars. If you’ll remember, Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Beck, and Sky Ferreira have all starred in campaigns for the brand. The Kills’ Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart are Saint Laurent front-row fixtures come fashion week, and Slimane has crafted custom onstage outfits for the likes of Daft Punk and Keith Richards. The label’s latest stint in the spotlight came yesterday evening, when Bruno Mars and his band wore custom metallic Saint Laurent jackets, skinny ties, and black trousers during their performance. Looks like the Grammy Award-winning pop prince has officially been inducted into the SL club of cool.
