Well, according to some wonderful website that we came across, it would apparently take Bradley Cooper 43 seconds to earn a smartphone in comparison to the average person on a 45k salary – and to add a little more salt to the wound, Beyonce is turning over a smartphone every 17 seconds. Like the infamous saying goes: “Is this real life!?”

Fortunately for the rich and famous, yes, it is. So on that note, let’s take a look at what some of our favourite celebrities are bringing in every second.

Taylor Swift

Recently crowned one of the most powerful women in the world by Forbes, at 25 Tay-Tay reportedly made $64 million big ones last year. This equates to $2.03 per second, $121.80 per minute and $7,308 per hour.

Oprah

She was renowned for giving away extravagant gifts on her talk show, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that Winfrey’s salary matches her empire. At the height of her reign in 2011, the 61-year-old apparently made $10 per second, $600 per minute, $36,000 an hour, $864,000 a day and $311 million a year!

Justin Bieber

Love him or loathe him, the Biebs is laughing all the way to the bank. Despite getting into some hot water last year with DUI charges and let’s call it – a shitty f@#king attitude, the 21-year-old still managed to make $2.54 per second, $152.40 per minute and a whopping $80 million per year. There really is no such thing as bad publicity, is there?

Robert Downey Jr.

Coming in at number 8 on Forbes rich list, the actor reportedly earned double digit millions last year, making $2.37 per second, $8,532 per minute and enough dough in a month to buy 12 impressive sized houses. Life goals!

Beyoncé

We already know that Queen Bey turns over nearly four smartphones a minute, so just how much money is the popstar making in a second? Thanks to her massively successful world tour, along with her lucrative endorsement deals, Mrs Carter made roughly $3.65 per second, $13,140 per hour and $115 million in 2014.

Dr Dre

Saving the best for the last and quite possibly the most outrageous, hip-hop sensation, Dre, made a ludicrous $620 million dollars las year. Let me rephrase that, in the time that it took for you to type two keystrokes on your keyboard – maybe less depending on your speed – the King of rap made $19.66. That’s $1,179 per minute and just short of 100k per hour.

Which Supermodel Earned The Most Last Year?

Forbes has released their annual list of the highest earning supermodels, can you guess who has topped the list?

1. Gisele Bundchen – $47 million
Earning more than five times the figure of other supermodels on the list, it is not surprise that Gisele has topped the list for eight years in a row! Over the past year Gisele has fronted campaigns for H&M, Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Pantene, and Oral-B, and also has her own footwear and lingerie lines.

2. Doutzen Kroes – $8 million

The veteran supermodel and pioneer of the waif-thin body type, 40-year-old Moss continues to front Rimmel London cosmetics and collaborate with Topshop. While her yearly earnings may total $7 million, we all know Kate’s total worth is more likely quadruple this figure.

Who Is Forbes’ Richest Celebrity Under 30?

It pays to be a young celebrity! Lady Gaga is Forbes’ richest celebrity under 30, earning about $US80 million ($86 million) in the last year alone.

And she would have made even more had she not had to cancel her Born This Way Ball tour early in the year due to a serious hip injury.

Lady Gaga (real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta), 27, beat Justin Bieber, 19, who earned $US58 million ($62 million), largely through concerts and business deals including fragrances and licensing.

Her wealth shows no sign of waning either, with Forbes expecting her upcoming album ARTPOP, due in November, to be such a huge hit that she will stay on top of the rich list next year.

Seven of the top 10 highest earners under 30 are women, including Taylor Swift (in third place), Rihanna, Katy Perry, Adele, Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart. DJ and producer Calvin Harris and Taylor Lautner round out the top 10 list.
