We always wonder just how much celebrities and others in the public eye get paid, and thanks to the good folks at Parade.com we now have a small insight.
First up, the hottest property in the NBA right now and possibly one of the best shooters of all time [Kanye voice], Stephen Curry earned $11,370,786 last year. Thats a lot of loot but not so much when you compare it to the $25,000,000 earned by veteran Kobe Bryant and $22,000,000+ earned by superstar LeBron James [both of whom by the way Curry out performed last season]. Brings us back to what Jay-Z said, “Would you rather be underpaid or over rated?” [I know what I’d choose].
He did it… The kid finally did it. Leo DiCaprio finally took home an academy award for his role in “The Revenant” and in the process banked a cool $29,000,000. Not a bad days work if you ask me. I’m gonna be honest here, I still haven’t seen the film, but some say this was the movie that he least deserved to win an oscar for, who cares, he’s got one now and thats all that matters. Like Jay-Z said, “The only thing that matters is just a matter of time.
I swear it seems like Kevin Hart has a new something out every week. I don’t mind because he’s funnier than a mofo. When I was in school I was the class clown, and my teachers always said that making jokes wouldn’t get me anywhere in life… *deep breath*. Well I guess they were kind of right, I mean Kevin heart only made $28,000,000… And it’s well deserved too. Whether it’s stand up, feature films or endorsements, Kevin Hart don’t stop.
With more than $80,000,000 earned last year, Taylor Swift was the highest paid celebrity in the world. I don’t know what else to say…
Other Saleries: Wayne Rooney £13M, Steve McFadden (Phil Mitchel) £360,000, Queen Elizabeth £39M, Jay-Z £56M, Barak Obama $400,000, Bill Gates $3.7B, London Bus Driver £41,000.
We think its crazy that Barak Obama earns $400,000 while Phil Mitchell only earns £360,000… Wait hold on thats pounds, so at the current exchange rate that would be… $508,500. Yeah that seems about fair [lols]. What do you think of these salaries? Who’s getting too much? Who ain’t getting enough [I ain’t getting enough] comment below.
