Beyoncé never fails to impress! The singer tops Forbes‘ list of 2014’s highest-paid female musicians and is way ahead of all other entries on the list.
This is un-bey-lievable! Beyoncé — more commonly known as “The Greatest Human Being in the World” — has topped Forbes‘ list of highest-paid female musicians of 2014, and she beat all the other ladies by a league. Seriously, maybe even a league and a half.
Queen Bey nabbed the throne with earnings of $115 million, nearly doubling her income of $55 million in 2013. Here’s the crazy part, though: The runner-up, Taylor Swift, reeled in $64 million, which is only half of Beyoncé’s earnings. Let’s be honest: $64 million is probably pocket change to Bey. Coffee money, if you will.
Per Forbes, Beyoncé’s massive earnings are largely coming from her surprise self-titled album, the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and endorsement deals (with the likes of H&M and Pepsi). The calculations are tracked from June 2013 to June 2014.
OK, so Beyoncé clearly needs to pen a book on financial advice, because she has a magnificent strategy. The singer managed to go from $55 million in 2013 — which already is a lot — to $115 million this year. How in the world…? If she could just take the principles of her career and break them into simpler terms, can you imagine how many people could benefit from it? Beyoncé is an intelligent woman who knows how to run her brand (as in, she is her own brand) and is darn good at it. What better way to empower fellow women than by teaching them how to run a successful business and be independent? We’re on to something here.
If not write a book, then maybe Bey should give lectures or presentations… Just something! Share the knowledge. What do you think?
