While you’re prepping to ace your classes this up & coming fall, it looks like some of the biggest teenage popstars around have been doing a little homework of their own.
The sort of homework that gets you a bonafied check with at least seven digits. Yea. A million dollars. At least.
More importantly, how much dough did they put in the bank and who came out on top?
10. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rebecca Black[/lastfm] (14-years-old) $1.2 mil
You’re probably asking yourself, “Excuse me, Rebecca Black?” Yes, Rebecca “It’s Friday” Black made this list earning a cool $1.2 million dollars after her youtube music video “Friday” became a web sensation. She even appeared in Katy Perry’s latest music video for “Last Friday Night.”
Say what you will about her music video, but homegirl is ridin’ solo with a seven figure income and still in high school.
9. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Demi Lovato[/lastfm] (18-years-old) $3.5 million
This troubled starlit barely made the cut at 18-years-old, but that’s old enough to be a senior in high school. Let’s hope she doesn’t squander all that money and talent on the wrong sort of things.
8. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Willow Smith[/lastfm] (10-years-old) $4 million
She whips her hair back and forth. A lot. Enough to earn her a cool $4 million more dollars than we’ve got in our pocket. Really, for a 10-year-old she basically has everything figured out. We cannot wait for her to step out and emerge as the new Rihanna.
7. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jaden Smith[/lastfm] (13-years-old) $5 million
To be fair, Jaden Smith made a bulk of his chunk change from his films, however, his duet with Justin Bieber on “Never Say Never” didn’t really hurt either.
Now we just have to wait and see if he’ll come out with an album of his own or if he’ll let his sister dominate in that arena.
6. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Selena Gomez[/lastfm] (19-years-old) $5.5 mil
Ok, so she’s 19, but hear us out. She literally just turned 19 and could have been in class with you in summer school. Oh, how lovely that would have been.
Selena’s a busy girl. The actress, singer-songwriter, musician, fashion designer took $5.5 million home this past year. And if she keeps up this hustle & flow she’ll likely double it next year.
5. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Victoria Justice[/lastfm] (18-years-old) $8 million
Victoria is making her way in the entertainment industry. So far she’s dominating the entertainment industry as an actress, singer, songwriter and dancer with her debut album coming out earlier this month.
And all while still being old enough to go to senior prom. We bet she’d even be the prom queen.
4. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nick Jonas[/lastfm] (18-years-old) $12.5 million
Nick might be the youngest Jonas brother, but that’s never stopped him from doing his own thing and and breaking off from the pack.
Lucky for him, his fanbase is strong and it’s likely, no matter what he does he’ll end up on top. Plus, taking in $12.5 million a year doesn’t exactly limit his options.
3. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Taylor Lautner[/lastfm] (19-years-old) $16 million
So he’s not a singer, but he is Jacob the sexy Twilight werewolf that delights and tantalizes audiences everywhere.
And to be perfectly honest, he’s on this list because he needs to be and because he earned $16 million and we’re still sorry he wasn’t the guy that sat next to us in Biology class.
2. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Miley Cyrus[/lastfm] (18-years-old) $48 million
Miley Cyrus is not a girl, not yet a woman but still old enough to be a high school student. Albiet, one with enough money to buy a personal plane and all sorts of awesome goodies.
Miley’s been working since most of us were wasting time trying to find the alphabets in the ABC soup and if she invests wisely, she won’t be working while we’re all sitting at desks. We suppose it’s a regular “Party In The USA” for this multi-millionaire.
1. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] (17-years-old) $53 million
I guess to all those Justin Bieber haters out there, “Never Say Never” about someone’s potential cause this popstar prodigy raked in bukko bucks this year between the release of his film, an album and touring.
And it seems like he doesn’t plan to slow down anytime soon, so it’ll be interesting to see where he lands on this list next year. However, we bet no matter where he ends up, you’ll smile.
