I think my biggest surprise from this list is the fact that the Kim Kardashian that everybody has been hating on made more money than Kanye West. Kanye isn’t even on the list.
What do you think of the list? Does anything surprise you on it?
By the way, I know that some of you want to enter the entertainment industry. Signify by commenting what you want to be (actress, singer, athlete) in the comments section so that we can get to know you and pray for you. Maybe one day, you just may end up on this list.
