Every year Forbes puts out a lost of the most influential people in the business along with how much they make. So if you don’t feel like you’re poor right now, get ready because once you see these numbers it’s insane.
I think that the absolute craziest thing is that Puff Daddy is still making the most money. That’s right, Sean P.Diddy Combs is still out there doing the damn thing. I mean it did have his Bad Boy Reunion tour, he still owns a clothing company, and he has his own label which he makes money off of.
Considering Diddy started off as doing street marketing for Biggie, I would say that he deserves credit for making such an empire.
The rest of the people on the list really aren’t all that big of a surprise. Although I am kind of surprised that Selena didn’t make the cut.
Check it out!
The top-grossing celebrity singers of the past year according to Forbes:
Celine Dion is an absolute music God. If you don’t think so you can leave because this blog isn’t for you, that’s for sure. I mean it’s okay to not like her music but if you can’t admit that she is one of the best females to ever be in the music business, you’re wrong.
She is a five time Grammy winner, she gave a boost to Las Vegas with her residency, and she has sold over 220 million albums world wide. She is also kind of a weirdo which makes me love her even more.
The past few years haven’t been easy on Celine but she has never lost her smile, something we should all appreciate.
Celine is absolutely an icon, she pounds her chest while she sings, and I remember seeing an interview that she will spend a lot of time with fans because they deserve it. So that makes her even more of a legend because she appreciates fans.
Happy birthday Celine and I want to celebrate by posting my top five favorite Celine songs of all time. It was hard to narrow down five but I was able to do it.
Don’t hate on the order of my list either, okay? Different strokes for different folks.
My love for Celine Dion is endless, I think that she is probably one of my all time favorite celebrities. She is kind of a weirdo but whatever, I love her anyway.
Well a couple got engaged in front of her over the weekend, and her reaction was everything. Clearly she had no idea what was going to happen, and I am so glad that the photographer took multiple photos to capture the moment.
Dear future husband, where ever you are out there. If you propose to me in front of Celine Dion or Backstreet Boys I will die. So wait until after the meet and greet but let them know so we can go up on stage during the concert.
It was reported that Celine wished them a lifetime of happiness.
Apparently President-elect Donald Trump asked Celine Dion to perform at his inauguration and she said no way Jose. I assume that is something she would say since she is kind of strange. I love the woman but she is a little odd duck for sure.
So far he has 2010 America’s Got Talent winner Jackie Evancho to sing the National Anthem but most people know that it would be career suicide to perform at the event.
Celine isn’t the only superstar to turn down Trump’s offer to perform at his inauguration. You can add Garth Brooks, Elton John and Andrea Bocelli to the list of people that have turned him down.
Apparently he is getting desperate for some entertainment but Hollywood has decided that they don’t want to perform because they don’t support him.
Kid Rock and Ted Nugent will probably perform since there aren’t many entertainers who are interested.
Celine has been doing so much press lately and I can’t get enough of it. She is such a weirdo and I love every single second of it. As strange as she is, she has incredible talent and can sing like an angel. Plus, her weirdness is kind of endearing, right?
On ‘Ellen’ the other day, she decided to give rapping a try. Well she decided to put her own spin on rap songs.
Do you think she is going to add “Hot In Herre” to her Vegas show? One can only hope.
Personally, after watching the video she needs to cover Britney’s “Work Bitch”, it will be even more timeless than it already is.
Not a huge fan of Jimmy Fallon, I find him annoying but Celine Dion? Celine Dion is an absolute angel. She has had a tough few months but she is out there, still smiling, being able to talk about her late husband.
Last night though, she continued to be an angel and did a few impressions. I can’t hate on them either. She did her best and she did just fine!
You go Celine, you continue to be perfect.
Also I love that Cher and Celine are friends, I would do just about anything to sit in a room with the two of them.
Last night Celine was honored with the icon award at the Billboard Music Awards, an award that this strong female vocalist absolutely deserves for her work. She has put out hit after hit, she opened the flood gates by having her own show in Vegas and she is kind. I have truly never heard a bad thing about Celine, I have always heard that she takes time out with fans and has never had much controversy surrounding her. Over the past year she has not only lost her brother but her longtime husband Rene.
Obviously her performance was absolutely flawless, Celine is someone who can command a stage with simply her presence. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when she finished and then something happened. Her son was invited out on stage to give her the away and then there definitely wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Celine Dion is more than just an icon she is a true legend and there aren’t many of those left. Artists who demand your attention right when they step on stage, artists that were able to navigate the business before social media which makes it easier for artists and their rise.
The show must go on Celine, and you are doing an incredible job with it.
