Beyoncé Is All Smiles In New York City After Her Drop On 2015 Forbes List

Beyoncé was all smiles as she walked through the streets of NYC to her office in Midtown on June 30. But this pop star probably wasn’t smiling about her drop in the rankings on 2015’s Forbes list of the World’s Highest Paid Celebrities.



Beyoncé dropped significantly from last year’s $115 million that placed her in the number one spot, to this year’s $54.5 million and 29th spot. Last year’s Mrs. Carter Tour, which brought in approximately $2.4 million dollars per show on her 95 show tour, made Beyoncé the queen of 2014’s list.

Unfortunately for Bey fans, Floyd Mayweather stole Queen B’s #1 spot in 2015. Even rapper hubby Jay Z placed above her by a single spot, coming in at #28 with $56 million.

And while Queen B dropped, others rose — Kim Kardashian climbed up more than 50 spots from last year’s #88 to this year’s #33, and is now only a few spots behind Beyoncé. Katy Perry who stole the cover of Forbes magazine was one of the top ten highest paid celebs among others like, One D, Tay Swift, and Robert Downey Jr.

And Beyoncé happened to drop in rankings on another 2015 list — the list of Most Powerful Women where she went from #17 to #21 this year. Even though this is a drop, the Queen is the highest-ranked celebrity/performer on this list, which should make this difference irrelevant.
