    Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, LeBron James, Jackie Chan and Melissa McCarthy–what do they all have in common? They’re members of this year’s edition of the FORBES Celebrity 100, the definitive accounting of the top-earning entertainers on the planet.

    These stars pulled in a collective $5.1 billion pretax during our June-to-June scoring period. Regrettably, that’s more than the GDP of Belize, Gambia and Bhutan combined. Yet the list is surprisingly international in scope, ranging from Hollywood’s usual suspects like top-earning actor Dwayne Johnson (No. 19, $64.5 million) and cover star Kim Kardashian (No. 43, $51 million) to Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen (No. 99, $30.5 million) and Korean pop sensation Bigbang (No. 54, $44 million).

    Here at FORBES we recognize that, although many readers will enjoy exploring the list through our gorgeous interactive lander or browsing through a gallery of the top 100, some folks would prefer the cold, hard numbers. So, without further ado, here they are:

    Taylor Swift $170,000,000 USA

    2 One Direction $110,000,000 UK

    3 James Patterson $95,000,000 USA

    There's something wrong in this world when a lazy sack of shit like Howard makes more than Robert Downey Jr,, Jerry Seinfeld and Brittany Spears.

    They might be since his show sucks, he got fired from AGT, his daughter has a online wedding registry, and NSAL is still begging for money, etc

    There are some great people on this list, but there is also a lot of mediocrity. How much money you make at something doesn't necessarily mean you are really good at what you do. It just means you are good at making money.
