Noted purveyors of wealth Forbes Magazine has revealed its celebrity rich list and the results are a bit surprising. 

Coming out on top are boxers Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquaio, who, thanks to their Las Vegas fight in May, have earned collectively a total of $460 million! Wow. 

However, most importantly, the magazine revealed who the biggest earning popstar is. 

Sitting a-top the list is Katy Perry, who managed to bag herself a hefty $135 million (£86 million). 

This figure is, no doubt, partly due to the singer's lengthy Prism World Tour as well as her highly publicised half-time performance at this year's Super Bowl. 

“I am proud of my position as a boss, as a person that runs my own company,” Perry, who covers this month's edition of Forbes, said. “I’m an entrepreneur. … I don’t want to shy away from it. I actually want to kind of grab it by its balls.”

Well, KP, we totally agree that you are a B.O.S.S.

Following just behind Perry were One Direction, who took home a tidy $130 million (£82 million), with Taylor Swift just making the top 10 list with $80 million (£51 million).
