Parade Celebrity Salaries 2016


Parade has just released its annual “What People Earn” issue for 2016, revealing the salaries of some of the country’s top celebrities. Check out the gallery below to find out what some big stars earned in the past year!

In no particular order, this year’s list features 2016 Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio, who earned an estimated $29 million over the past 12 months thanks to his $20 million paycheck for The Revenant, plus back-end profits from the successful film. Taylor Swift reportedly raked in $80 million this past year, mostly due to her “1989 World Tour,” which sold out arenas around the globe.

Taking home $59 million was Lady Gaga, who, despite already having a flourishing music career, recently added acting to her resume and won Best Actress in a Limited-Series at this year’s Golden Globe Awards for her role on the FX show “American Horror Story.” Jay Z, who earned $56 million, also has side projects in addition to being a successful rapper. He owns both his own record label and clothing line, Roc-a-Fella Records and Rocawear, respectively, plus Tidal.

Judge Judy is the highest-paid TV personality in the world, according to the magazine, earning $47 million for her syndicated court show, which has been on the air for 20 years. Meanwhile, Steph Curry, the Golden State Warriors player considered by many to be the greatest shooter in NBA history, received more than $11 million over this last year.
