Bieber highest star earner under 30

Justin Bieber has been named the Highest Earning Celebrity Under 30 of 2014.

The 20-year-old pop singer has topped the Forbes list of young stars raking in the most money after making 80 million dollars (£51 million) between June 2013 to June 2014, partly thanks to his Believe world tour.

British boyband One Direction came in second on the list, with earnings of 75 million dollars (£47.8 million) for the year between the five of them.

And Taylor Swift, 24, is the top-earning woman under 30, coming in third place with an annual income of 64 million dollars (£40.8 million).

Jennifer Lawrence is the only actor to make it onto the list among all the high-earning musicians. The 24-year-old Hunger Games star made 34 million dollars (£21.6 million this year).

J-Law came seventh, just behind Miley Cyrus, who recently celebrated her 22nd birthday and raked in 36 million dollars (£22.9 million) thanks to her wild Bangerz tour.

Rounding off the top 10 list was Lady Gaga, 28, in eighth place with earnings of 33 million dollars (£21 million) for the year, Quite a lot for someone who claimed to be broke earlier this year due to poor management of her finances by people in her team with whom she has since parted ways.

Sweish DJ Avicii, 25, was ninth with 28 million dollars (£17.8 million) and Californian electronic music star Skrillex, 26, completed the top 10 with earnings of 18 million dollars (£11.4 million).
