Forbes’ Celebrity Billionaires List 2024 Released

Forbes magazine, the renowned financial news publication, has recently published its annual list of the richest celebrities in the world. The list showcases the wealthiest stars whose net worth has crossed the billion-dollar threshold and ranks them according to the magnitude of their wealth. This year, the highlight of the list was its first entry, the talented pop star Taylor Swift. She has now joined the exclusive billionaire club, but her achievement is remarkable because she has done it entirely through her songwriting and performing career. Her massively successful Eras Tour last year helped her secure a spot on the list, and she is now considered one of the most successful female musicians of all time.

The list also includes a diverse range of stars from various fields. Filmmakers are well represented, with Tyler Perry and Peter Jackson making it to the top 10. Meanwhile, the top two spots on the list are occupied by the iconic filmmakers George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, who have a combined net worth of over $10 billion. The sports world is also well represented, with the legendary athletes Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, LeBron James, and Magic Johnson earning a spot on the list. In addition to Taylor Swift, two other artists made it to the list, with Rihanna at number 9 and Jay-Z at number 5. Rihanna’s net worth is an impressive $1.4 billion, thanks to her successful beauty and lingerie brands, Fenty Beauty and Savage x Fenty. Jay-Z’s net worth is even more staggering, with a whopping $2.5 billion in wealth, separate from the $500 million plus earned by his wife, Beyonce. Jay-Z, the rapper and entrepreneur, has been relatively silent lately, but he recently played a part in the launch of ScHoolboy Q’s new album, Blue Lips.
