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. #$$$.
There’s another rapper falling into fashion’s favor. Today, WWD reports, Alexander Wang has teamed up with Dr. Dre to turn out a pair of limited-edition black and gold Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. It’s been a rap-filled year for fashion, what with Kanye West’s A.P.C. collab, A$AP Rocky’s cameo on the Hood by Air runway, and Jay Z’s Picasso Baby shoot, but for Wang, it would seem, it’s all about the D.R.E.

After Jean Paul Gaultier sent his Amy Winehouse-inspired Spring Couture collection down the runway, the late singer’s dad, Mitch, called it “an insult.” For the first time since then, Gaultier has talked publicly about the collection: “I was surprised when she died that no one in fashion did an homage to her,” he told VogueTV over the weekend. “Her look was fabulous, fantastic—it was unique.” [Vogue U.K.]
