Beyonce and Jay Z Named World's Highest-Paid Celebrity Couple

Forbes Magazine just named Jay and Bey the highest paid celebrity couple in the world. Together they made $78 million - from May 2011 to May 2012. Beyonce - $40m, Jay Z - $38m. And Beyonce took a break for most of the year. Na wa o! :-)

 From Forbes Magazine,
Take Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z, for example. Last year’s runners-up on the list of The World’s Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples, the duo has now climbed one spot to top this year’s ranking. Knowles, who took a break from her hectic touring schedule in 2011 to give birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter, still collects big paychecks from old hits. Besides, the singer’s new album went platinum in the U.S., not to mention her non-musical ventures and endorsement deals, which all helped to bring her total earnings between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012 to $40 million, according to data from the latest Celebrity 100 list.
And as the male half of music’s first couple, Jay-Z isn’t far behind his wife. The hip-hop mogul made millions from Watch the Throne, his musical collaboration with pal Kanye West, and even more from the tour that followed. Add to that a bevy of non-musical enterprises such as ad firm Translation and cosmetics company Carol’s Daughter and the result is a staggering $38 million that he has brought home in twelve months, putting the couple’s annual income at $78 million.

Linda,lemme say this ,i know i'm part of it as well but you should have all these anonymous posting inactive.Comments should come with the name of the individual who wants to comment so that there can be arguments,debates etc.its going to make this lovely blog more interesting and fun.Cos i really cant stand some people's comment but i dont know how to "attack" or rather respond to there comments. Can you imagine someone asking what Jay and Bey are doing with there money?must be someone from Ogbagi akoko who really doesnt know whats going on in the world lol..abeg Linda,look into my suggestion.Ciao!

The German Immigrant says...Its funny how Tom Cruise is reported as the highest earner and also to have made the same amount within approximately the same time frame. What's special about this number 78million dollars? Is it a media fantasy?...hope thy spend some on worthy causes too besides plastic surgery and cocaine...says The German Immigrant

Linda is helping you get informed you're grumbling.. Dundee united. Others that always ask the foolish question pls retire it. I hate reading LIB comments cos it annoys me, dumb muthas!!

justlikeme@live.com said...

Although i dont like Beyonce oh...but she is a very good role model. She was scandal free before marrying and now married and wont allow public into her live. She will prolly be married to Jay-Z as long as they live....or at least till their pikin grows very very old enough!

See Kim K, even our 9ja own....they dont have half as much and arent earning more than their hubby yet pride and they always want to be in the news
RESULT: Divorce sharp sharp...na here we go dey when we go hear Ini Edo case, Mercy Johnson, Uche Jombo, Lilian Bach...who remain. Make we dey look

You can beef about her getting money, i dont like her too but she is a role model...believe that!

Do you have all this fruit of the Spirit as a christian? I don't mean a church goer here, what i mean, a Christlike life. That is a man that has been giving the unction to function in the kingdom of God [BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN]
So if you are a believer and you dòn't have it, there is a big problem in your relationship with God. Thanks Evangelist Noble J A Ozogbuda
