Forbes revealed the results for their ‘List Of The Highest-Earning Celebrities Under 30.’ The data was compiled based on entertainment-related earnings from June 2013 to June 2014.

 

Nine of the ten top grossers were musicians, with Justin Bieber ($80 million) and One Direction ($75 million) taking the two top spots respectively.

 

Avicii and Skrillex the only dance music representatives with respective figures of $28 million and $18m.

 

Perhaps most revealing is not how much Skrillex and Avicii are grossing annually from touring and digital sales, but the age at which they’ve achieved such success. With their eminent international status in mind, it’s easy to forget that Moore is only 26 years old, while Bergling is a mere 25.

 

Check out the top 10 below:

 

1. Justin Bieber – $80 million

2. One Direction – $75 million

3. Taylor Swift – $64 million

4. Bruno Mars – $60 million

5. Rihanna – $48 million

6. Miley Cyrus – $36 million

7. Jennifer Lawrence – $34 million

8. Lady Gaga – $33 million

9. Avicii – $28 million

10. Skrillex – $18 million
