Beyonce Is Best-paid Celebrity Under 30

BEYONCE has trumped her chart rivals BRITNEY SPEARS, MILEY CYRUS and the JONAS BROTHERS to be named the Best-Paid Celebrity Under 30 in a new Forbes magazine poll.
The R&B superstar, who is married to rap icon Jay-Z, raked in an estimated $87 million (£58 million) in the year between 1 June 2008 and 1 June 2009 to top the survey.
The 27 year old's fortune came from a variety of projects as a singer, actress, fashion designer and brand ambassador for the likes of cosmetic company L'Oreal and computer game giant Nintendo.
She was placed far ahead of Finnish Formula 1 driver Kimi Raikkonen, 29, and 24-year-old NBA hotshot LeBron James, who complete the top three.
Other stars to feature in the countdown include Toxic hitmaker Spears, 27, who earned $35 million (£23.3 million) in the last 12 months, while teenage Disney sensations Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers tie in seventh place with Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe and the world's highest-paid supermodel Gisele Bundchen with $25 million (£16.7 million).
The top five Best-Paid Celebrities Under 30 are as follows:
1. Beyonce - $87 million (£58 million)
2. Kimi Raikkonen - $45 million (£30 million)
3. LeBron James - $40 million (£26.7 million)
4. Britney Spears - $35 million (£23.3 million)
5. Roger Federer - $33 million (£22 million).
