How Much Kylie Jenner and Beyoncé Make an Hour?
A study of how much the riches entertainers make each how is so revealing. Business Inside reports George Clooney is the highest paid celebrity in the U.S. when you break it down to hourly wages. The Ocean’s Eleven star makes $27,283 an hour.
Behind Clooney is “self-made” billionaire Kylie Jenner with $19,006, then Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson ($14,155), Ellen DeGeneres ($9,988), LeBron James ($9,760), and Taylor Swift ($9,132). Beyoncé closes out the list-of-seven with $6,849. Her joint tour with JAY-Z is currently the highest-earning ongoing tour, topping Swift’s ongoing Reputation tour.
Bey said she “might be the next Bill Gates in the making” in “Formation” but she might want to aim for Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos instead. He tops the list with $4,474,885 an hour—although it’s likely he earns more because he’s allegedly exploiting his workers. Mark Zuckerberg follows behind with $1,712,328, then Walmart heiress Alice Walton with $1,392,694 an hour. Just in case you need a figure to compare, the current median salary in the U.S. is $45,552.
