Beyonce Earned Twice As Much As Jay Z Last Year

Beyonce towers over Jay Z earning more than twice as much as him last year.

In a major shock, Beyoncé failed to make the Forbes "World's Most Powerful Celebrities" list. Oh, please, you know that's impossible — she was actually ranked number one.
The annual list ranks 100 very famous rich people "from the worlds of movies, TV, music, sports, books and modeling based on money and fame."
Beyoncé, who has not slept for the past two years, brought in an average of $2.4 million over 95 concerts and dropped a surprise self-titled album, which nearly broke the Internet. She also signed lucrative endorsements with H&M and Pepsi and released a slew of perfumes. All in all, Forbes estimates that Beyoncé earned $115 million between June 1, 2013 and June 1, 2014.
Like all true queens, Beyoncé surpassed her husband Jay Z, who placed sixth on the list with $60 million in earnings.
Forbes determines the list of famous people you give all your money to through overall earnings, the number of times they were mentioned in print, TV and radio, as well as each celebrity's social media reach. A new ranking mechanism was added this year to measure cultural impact.
It seems like this is where Beyonce probably killed it. I remember the mayhem that followed her December 13th album drop when music editors were scrambling to include her on their end of the year lists even though the album had been out for a total of three days.
In addition to Beyoncé, the top ten famous money-havers list includes Oprah (#4), Ellen DeGeneres (#5), Rihanna (#8), and Katy Perry (#9).

Jay-Z is pimping Beyonce and she is too dumb to realize it. If baphomet Beyonce would have stuck with her dad, she would be an even bigger star than she is now.

I don't know, nba. I think she only had the courage to leave her dad because she know she's using Jay (connects). She's making all of the money.
