It’s that time of year again - Forbes has released its list of the top 100 highest-paid entertainers and Sean "Diddy" Combs is top of the tree.


  His earnings of $130m (102m pounds) pushed him up from last year’s 22nd spot.


  His success is down to his recent US tour, a marketing deal with a vodka company and selling one third of his Sean John clothing line.


  Beyonce and JK Rowling took second and third spot, but women comprise just 16% of the world’s top-earning celebrities.


  Newcomers include Kylie Jenner, at number 59, who is the youngest list member at the age of 19. Her earnings come from her family’s reality TV show - Keeping Up with the Kardashians - her namesake cosmetics company and clothing line, plus various endorsements.

  新入榜的包括仅19岁的Kylie Jenner,排名59,是的福布斯榜最年轻的富豪。她的收入来自于她家庭的真人秀节目——Keeping Up with the Kardashians,以及她的同名化妆品公司和服装,以及各种各样的代言。

  Half of the top 10 are made up of musicians, while two athletes - Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and basketball star LeBron James - also make the cut.


  Here’s a look at the top 10:


  1. Sean "Diddy" Combs - $130m ( 102m pounds)


  Grammy award-winning rapper Combs used to be best known for best-selling albums such as No Way Out and Forever. But the entrepreneur’s business interests have catapulted him into the big time, and he’s jumped from number 22 in last year’s list to nab this year’s top spot.

  获得格莱美奖的说唱歌手科姆斯以最畅销的专辑而闻名,比如No Way Out 以及Forever。但这位企业家的商业利益让他飞黄腾达,他从去年的第22位跃升至今年的榜首。

  2. Beyonce Knowles - $105m (82.7m pounds)

  2.Beyonce Knowles——1.05亿美元(8270万英镑)

  Queen Bey needs no introduction but she’s made a big leap up the chart, from number 34 last year. That’s largely due to profits from her Formation tour and her most recent album, the critically-acclaimed Lemonade. Her husband, Jay-Z, could only make number 55.


  3. JK Rowling - $95m (74.8m pounds)


  JK Rowling returns to the top 100, no doubt boosted by the publication of the two-part play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and the film release of Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

  JK罗琳回到了前100名,毫无疑问,Harry Potter与the Cursed Child以及Harry Potter的衍生剧Fantastic Beasts的出版,以及Where to Find Them都使得她的排名得到提升。

  4. Drake - $94m (74.06m pounds)

  4.德雷克- 9400万美元(pounds74.06万英镑)

  The Canadian hip hop star has jumped from number 69 to number four, more than doubling his fortune through touring and endorsements with the likes of Nike, Sprite and Apple.


  5. Cristiano Ronaldo - $93m (73.2m pounds)


  The Real Madrid footy star drops just one place on this year’s list. On top of his soccer earnings, the current Fifa world player of the year also has a line of branded products including underwear and jeans, plus a lifetime deal with Nike.


  6. The Weeknd - $92m (72.45m pounds)


  Another Canadian star, The Weeknd, has cracked the top 10 for the first time, having made it to number 30 last time round. His latest album, Starboy, had the third-largest debut sales week in the US of 2016. He recently collaborated with Lana Del Ray on duet, Lust for Life.

  另一名加拿大明星,维科尼,第一次挤入了前10名,上一次排第30名。他的最新专辑Starboy在2016年首次登陆就成为美国销量第三的专辑。他最近与Lana Del Ray合作,Lust for Life。

  7. Howard Stern - $90m (70.86m pounds)


  US "shock jock" and self-styled "king of all media" Howard Stern holds on to the seventh spot he occupied last year. The former America’s Got Talent judge is currently part way through a five-year deal with Sirius XM Radio.

  美国“shock jock”和自诩为“king of all media”的霍华德斯特恩在去年占据了第七位。这位前美国达人秀的评委与天狼星广播公司达成了一项为期5年的协议。

  8. Coldplay - $88m (69.33m pounds)

  8.Coldplay – 8800万美元(pounds69.33英镑)

  Coldplay return to the list following the success of their worldwide Head Full of Dreams tour, which finished in Australia and New Zealand in December. That’s good news for the charity sector, as the band donate 10% of their profits to good causes.

  Coldplay重返榜单是由于世界巡演Head Full of Dreams,12月完成了在澳大利亚和新西兰的演出。对慈善机构来说是个好消息,因为该乐队将10%的利润捐给慈善事业。

  9. James Patterson - $87m (68.53m pounds)


  Yes, it’s another author on the list - Patterson has published more than 130 titles in his name and is believed to be the world’s best-selling living author. Former US president Bill Clinton is currently writing a novel about the White House in collaboration with him.


  10. LeBron James - $86m (67.8m pounds)


  Probably the US’s best-known basketball star, the Cleveland Cavaliers player’s $31m (24.4m pounds) salary in 2016-17 made him only the third NBA player to earn $30m in a season after Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. His endorsement list ain’t bad either, including brands such as Nike, Coca-Cola and Beats by Dre.
