He gave her a run for her money… and didn't even come close!
The 26-year-old has already topped two of Forbes' End of the Year lists so far in 2016 — highest paid female in music and highest paid celeb under 30 — but she can officially add another superlative to her résumé: Highest paid musician!!!
We guess $170 MILLION in a single year was just too much for her peers to compete with!
However, TayTay's not the only one making the big bucks…
In fact, Forbes' countdown out Wednesday includes 30 of the biggest acts in the industry — it's just too bad Justin Bieber's $56 million only put him at No. 13!!
Ch-ch-check out all 30 of Forbes' Highest Paid Musicians of 2016 list (below)!!!
Like most of us, Jimmy Kimmel has a pretty good feeling this country is going to hell.
But thanks to a star-studded musical PSA, we can still save ourselves from the fiery pits of the underworld… by helping people with AIDS!
On Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late night host teamed up with Bono's (RED) campaign for the second year in a row to raise awareness and money to help fight AIDS, and he assembled an all-star lineup of A-listers to help get out the message!
A tuxedo-clad Julia Roberts, Channing Tatum, Kristen Bell, and Neil Patrick Harris joined Kimmel in singing a special song for the charity episode which also featured Halsey, DJ Khaled, and The Killers' Brandon Flowers.
The faux-Christmas tune was chock-full of bits, including Channing and NPH silently tap dancing on a rug so no one could hear and Bono himself playing the role of Satan as he emerged from a hellish bathtub.
It's hard to imagine hell not being a bunch of celebrities singing self-aware songs about how they should have helped the less fortunate more! Ha!
Ch-ch-check out the musical moment (below) to see how you can avoid burning in hell!
Yup, the U2 frontman has been named as the magazine's first ever Man of the Year and will be honored alongside all of the other influencers on November 14 in El Lay. Of course, this decision wasn't made lightly as the magazine's editor-in-chief, Cindi Leive, dished to the Associated Press:
The Little Monsters are NOT going to like this!
On Tuesday, Rolling Stone released their profile on The Chainsmokers who dished about their favorite and — most importantly — least favorite artists.
Ever since the success of their mega-hit Closer, the duo — Alex Pall (right) and Drew Taggart — have mingled with music's biggest names including Chris Martin from Coldplay, fellow EDM superstar Calvin Harris, and Bono from U2!
According to Taggart, Bono "rolled up to our studio, all by himself" and:
"played us some new U2 music. We played him some of our new stuff, and with this one song, he was like, 'That's great – will you send that to me?' Which was so sick."'
However, Alex and Drew aren't fans of everyone. When asked about Lady GaGa's new single Perfect Illusion, Pall flat out said:
We love seeing celebs band together to talk about a serious cause.
In a video for the upcoming NBC event, which helps raise funds to fight kids' poverty, a slew of A-listers (literally) finish each other's sentences all while promoting a good cause.
Other stars who pop up include Chloë Grace Moretz, Kristen Bell, Liam Neeson, Anna Kendrick,Lena Dunham, Vince Vaughn, Tracy Morgan, and Will Ferrell — while A-listers like Emma Thompson, Celine Dion, and Julianne Moore barely say a word!
And no charity video would be complete without Bono stopping by at the end to give a serious look! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the funny promo (below) and catch the second annual Red Nose Day special airing Thursday at 9 p.m. on NBC!
Bono is truly in awe of Jennifer Lawrence!
In a candid Facebook Live Q&A for his ONE organization this past Tuesday, the singer made mention of Jennifer and her recent comments about the gender pay gap in Hollywood. Considering the icon is a big champion of gender equality himself, it's no surprise he praised the actress for her amazing work concerning the issue.
Speaking on his gender equality philosophy and how Lawrence's past comments have shaped the entertainment industry, Bono explained:
"Gender equality is at the center of any movement that holds fairness, freedom, and justice as its core values. In Hollywood, Jennifer Lawrence, speaking about how actors are paid. Women have this incredible thing – bond I think you have. More than men. Women have a great sense of solidarity. It's women saying they will not have it anymore. They will not take the bad deal.”
Wow! What high praise from the singer!
Who knows, maybe the beauty can help out with ONE's "Poverty Is Sexist" campaign — we already know Oprah Winfrey and Melinda Gates are fans!
