Find Out How Much Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Beyonce + More Earned Per Second in 2014by Ali Szubiak | PopCrush
One thing we know for sure about our favorite celebrities is that their paychecks are way higher than the average person’s. Well, probably. But just how much can a single celebrity make in a year? That question is typically answered at some point — reports say Taylor Swift earned around $64 million in 2014, while Beyonce raked in an insane $115 million. So we know how much they made in an entire year, but how much did your fave celebs earn per second?
Well, according to skyrange.net, you can find out exactly how much your faves earned last year — down to the second. The site claims that musicians are higher earners than actors or athletes nowadays — which is insane to consider. The highest paid musician in 2014? That would be Dr. Dre. His deal with Apple for his Beats headphones (selling them for a cool $3 billion) allowed him to make almost 20 bucks per second. Roughly translated, that means he saw around $620 million dollars last year.
Beyonce made roughly $115 million, which made her $3.65 per second. That’s almost half of what some people make per hour, if you’re working for minimum wage. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber made $2.54 per second, earning him around $80 million — and that was during a mostly year-long break. Taylor Swift somehow made less than Justin, despite her colossal success. Of course, earning $2.03 per second isn’t really something to complain about.
