The 15 highest-paid celebrities in the world, ranked – Business Insider

Though Forbes revoked Kylie Jenner’s billionaire status less than a week ago, she still topped the publication’s new list of the highest-paid celebrities in the world. 

To determine which celebrities were paid the most, Forbes looked at what each earned, pretax, between June 2019 and May 2020, before deducting fees for agents, lawyers, and managers. The publication’s figures are sourced from Nielsen Music/MRC Data, Pollstar, IMDB, NPD BookScan, and ComScore, in addition to information gathered from interviews with industry experts as well as from the stars themselves. 

Jenner’s brother-in-law Kanye West is in a fairly distant second place on the list, with $170 million in earnings. Tennis legend Roger Federer, who was recently ranked as the world’s highest-paid athlete, follows in the third spot.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
