Metallica, Bon Jovi & KISS Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Celebrities List!

June 6, 2020

OK, Metallica, sure. But Bon Jovi and KISS making Forbes magazine’s annual list of the world’s highest-paid celebrities? Not sure I would have called that.

Forbes estimates that Metallica made 40.5M in the last 12 months, good enough for #78. Bon Jovi made 38M to hit #87 and KISS earned 36.5M for #95.

Kyle Jenner topped the list, making 590M over the past year. Holy. Shit. Let that sink in. Over 10M a week! Kanye West was #2 at 170M. Tennis great Roger Federer was #3 at 106.3M. Shock jock Howard Stern was #8 at 90M.

Other notables include The Rolling Stones at 59M (#32), Paul McCartney at 37M (#91).
