That's a lot of dough!
Young entertainers make a lot of money these days thanks to successful movies, world tours, and top selling albums.
Forbes just released their list for highest-paid entertainers under 30 and while you may think that a movie star like Jennifer Lawrence tops the list, the honor actually goes to One Direction. In fact, almost all the celebs on the list are musicians!
With a WILDLY successful world tour underway and a new hit album, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne – and we suppose to a lesser degree Zayn Malik — made a staggering $130M this year.
While it's a bit different because there are multiple boys in the group, it's still incredibly impressive seeing as how all of them are younger than 24!
This is the power of music!
And of Ed Sheeran…
British teen Ashton Wyss says the Thinking Out Loud singer deserves the credit for saving him from anorexia five years ago when he was struggling with the disorder.
When Wyss was twelve years old, he was depressed and wasn't fitting in at school. All that caused him to stop eating, to the point where he started losing weight and getting seriously sick.
The teen was eventually transferred into therapy, and while that helped, Wyss says it along wouldn't have been enough:
We could all use a break sometimes!
Sheeran, who also announced that his third album is on the way, said he won't be back on social media until next fall!

Turns out Ed Sheeran is quite the daredevil.
In a recent interview with Australia's Nova radio as he completes the final leg of his world tour, the 24-year-old musician revealed that he will have to undergo surgery on a damaged eardrum at the beginning of the new year.
How did he burst his eardrum, you might ask?
The Photograph singer revealed that he was injured while vacationing in Spain earlier this year:
"I have to have an operation in January on my ear because I stupidly jumped off a yacht really high up and smashed it. I landed wrong, and it burst my eardrum so I have to go and get a graft, which means I'm not allowed to fly for a while, so it's kind of good, it means I have to stay at home."
It might not be the best circumstances, but we're sure this is a good excuse to relax after being on the road for so long!
He's been so busy traveling, the Brit didn't even notice how bad the injury was until he got back into water:
"It's the most painful thing having a hole in your eardrum and having water go in."
Yiiiikes! Our ears hurt just thinking out loud about it.
His music doesn't seem to be changed by the mishap (praise) — but we're sure it'll be a relief to start off the year injury-free!

What a treat!
Ed Sheeran was in Sydney, Australia last night for a concert at Allianz Stadium to perform for thousands of adoring fans.
While seeing Sheeran would have been special enough, the ginger god teased the crowd early on that he was going to have a special guest that 'influenced him in writing songs'.
That guest just so happened to be Sir Elton John!
The Crocodile Rock singer stopped by the venue and performed a few hit songs with the 24-year-old, including Don't Go Breaking My Heart and Afire Love.
Ch-ch-check out the performances (below) and let us know how jelly you are you couldn't be there to witness this AH-Mazing duo!
We like the sound of this!
