Maybe there is a method to Kanye West's madness.
Forbes has named Kanye the highest-paid male celebrity in the world. The $170 million he took in in 2020 only trails his half-sister-in-law Kylie Jenner, who took in $590 million.
Kanye was also the only musician in the top ten.
The rest of the top are Roger Federer ($106.3M), Cristiano Ronaldo ($105M), Lionel Messi ($104m), Tyler Perry ($97m), Neymer ($95.5m), Howard Stern ($90m), Lebron James ($88.2m), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson ($87.5m)
As for musicians, the top 15 and Kanye, Ariana Grande (No. 17 overall $72m), the Jonas Brothers (No. 20, $68.5m), The Chainsmokers (No. 21, $68m), Ed Sheeran (No. 23, $64m), Taylor Swift (No. 25, $63.5m), Post Malone (No. 28, $60m), the Rolling Stones (No. 32, $59m), Marshmello (No. 35, $56m), Diddy (No. 37, $55m), Shawn Mendes (No. 39, $54.5m), Jay-Z (No. 42, $53.5m), Billie Eilish (No. 43, $53m), BTS (No. 47, $50m), Drake (No. 49, $49m.)
