BEYONCE: Biggest. Star. Ever? Check This Out!

 

Beyonce is the biggest star in the world -- at least according to Forbes magazine, which puts her at the top of its annual Celebrity 100 list.

The magazine based its ranking on a variety of factors, including earnings, press mentions, social media followers and the undefined "impact on pop culture." Bey hit the top thanks to the $115 million she earned between June 1st, 2013 and June 1st, 2014, as well as the press generated by her 95-date tour and surprise album release. Her hubby, Jay Z, only managed a sixth-place finish -- although that could improve next year thanks to their current joint tour.

If you're all about the Benjamins, the year's top earner was Dr. Dre -- who raked in $620 million for his share of the sale of Beats headphones and streaming audio to Apple.

I originally grew up in Southern California but Fresno quickly started to feel like home to me after moving here to go to school. It was during my days at Reedley Community College where I landed an internship with B95 that eventually turned into me doing mid-days and The Juice Crew Morning Show! Growing up, my dad always told us that music can take you to a better place. Although he was talking about Latin music, I felt the same about Hip-Hop and R&B. My advice to listeners is this: Stay up, stay positive, and remember that if you want to be successful, you have to put yourself out there!
