Lil Wayne, Beyonce Make The Cut For Forbes' "Best-Paid Celebrities Under 30” List

With $15 million made in the past year rapper Lil Wayne manages to work his way on to Forbes' "Best-Paid Celebrities Under 30” list.

Although rapper Lil Wayne spent most of last year behind bars due to a weapons possession charge he still managed to make Forbes’ distinguished list of “Best-Paid Celebrities Under 30.”

Forbes’ list takes into account the amount of money each celebrity made between May 2010 and May 2011. The list is comprised of 20 celebrities from the worlds of music, sports, and movies.

According to Forbes, Lil Wayne was estimated to have made about $15 million in the past year.

The 28-year-old rapper was joined on the list by the likes of Katy Perry, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, LeBron James, and Beyoncé Knowles. And although Beyoncé made it on to Forbes’ list the magazine described the singer as being “unusually low” on their list due to the fact that she hasn’t toured or released an album in about a year.

Topping the list of “Best-Paid Celebrities Under 30” is of course Lady Gaga who raked in a jaw-dropping $90 million primarily due to album sales, her Monster Ball Tour, and a slew of endorsements.

    There's never a recession in Hollywood. It's sad that poor people want so desperately to make rich people richer. 90 million? Whoever's pocketing most of that must feel like they're on cloud nine right now.

    who cares what they grossed, its the net pay the matters. Gaga's been going around saying that she was actually pretty bankrupt during her tour, her accountants told her she had no money because her tour set cost so much in overhead. These lists are pretty useless imo

      honestly, that bangladesh situation is ironic. I think the beat only could get that big with likes of lil wayne. Personally I don't like the song/track/beat. Bangladesh could only made money selling it to lil wayne, but never get paid is the irony.
