Beyonce and Jay Z named highest earning couple

Sep 19 2013, 1:06pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z have topped Forbes magazine's World's Highest Paid Celebrity Couples list 2013.

The 'Single Ladies' hit-maker and the rapper - who also owns record label Roc Nation - took the crown for the second year running having earned a staggering $95 million together in the financial year June 2012 to June 2013, after their tours, businesses and endorsement deals saw them rack up $17 million more than last year.

Jay Z's collaborative effort with Kanye West, 'Watch The Throne', spurned a platinum selling album and a world tour which earned $1.4 million a night, while Beyonce - who took a year hiatus after giving birth to Blue Ivy in January 2012 - earned $2 million a night for her current 'The Mrs Carter Show' world tour.

The power couple earned $15 million more than Gisele Bundchen and her footballer husband Tom Brady who came in second place with combined earnings of $80 million.

The supermodel out-earned her partner by $4 million as her line of flip-flops with Brazilian label Grendene - in which she owns shares - helped double her wages from last year.

Meanwhile Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt earned a hefty $50 million despite the fact they do not own any large businesses.

The couple - who have six children together Shiloh, seven, Maddox, 12, Pax nine, Zahara, eight, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - pulled in the majority of their income from film fees while Brad Pitt earned a reported $7 million for his Chanel no.5 advert last year.

Forbes Highest Paid Celebrity Couples 2013, top five:

1) Beyonce and Jay Z, $95 million

2) Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, $80 million

3) Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, $50 million

4) Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, $35 million

5) Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, $30 million

Andrea Bocelli And Veronica Berti Wedding
As I previewed yesterday, Kanye West covers the new issue of GQ Mag. I was wrong, though. I thought GQ would release quotes from the interview in drips and drabs throughout the week, milking Kanye’s elegantly branded insanity. Nope! They released the whole interview all at once. You can read it here. There are WAY too many interesting quotes to summarize, so I really would suggest you read the whole thing. Kanye addresses the stories about his gold t ...

Beyoncé Leads MTV VMA Nominees

Jay Z In Concert - Cleveland, OH
Loves, you know how I feel about award shows. Unless it’s the Oscars, I wouldn’t deign to make an appearance. Occasionally, I’ll make an exception for the Golden Globes, Grammys or Emmys – but only if someone sends me a car, only if the gift bag is fantastic and only if I’m seated amongst actual stars like Beyoncé (not with commoners like her agents or lawyers). That said, I do love sitting at home with a bottle of imported bubbly and watching the MTV VMA’s. The horrible fashion choices! The ...
