These stars have worked their butts off to get where they are today. They not only shine because of their success but because they accomplished it all before they turned 30!
Forbes created their list by a combination of factors:
"To determine who the highest-paid celebrities under 30 are, we considered album and concert sales, movie paydays, profit participation, endorsements and advertising work. We talked to managers, agents, lawyers and other in-the-know folks to come up with our estimates. We did not deduct for agent fees or the expenses related to being a celebrity. We did not include athletes on this year’s list, although they are included in the Celebrity 100."
Here's the list for the highest paid young stars under 30 years old in 2012:
10. Robert Pattinson (26) $26.5 million
9. Taylor Lautner (20) $26.5 million
8. Lil Wayne (29) $27 million
7. Kristen Stewart (22) $34.5 million
6. Adele (24) $35 million
5. Katy Perry (27) $45 million
4. Lady Gaga (26) $52 million
3. Rihanna (24) $53 million
2. Justin Bieber (18) $55 million
1. Taylor Swift (22) $57 million
Wow! The ladies sure dominated this year! Girl Power!
