Taylor Swift has a certain attachment to the number 1989–it’s the year of her birth, the title of her latest multiplatinum album and the name of her record-smashing tour. She may soon have a new favorite: 170 million. That’s the number of dollars she raked in over the past year, easily enough to land her the No. 1 spot on the FORBES Celebrity 100 list of the world’s highest-paid entertainers.

The world’s 100 highest-paid celebrities pulled in $5.1 billion pretax during our June 2015 to June 2016 scoring period, more than the GDP of Belize, Gambia and Bhutan combined. Fees for agents, managers and lawyers are not deducted. Figures are based on numbers from Nielsen, Pollstar, Box Office Mojo, Songkick and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders and many of the stars themselves. The result is the definitive index of who’s making what in the global business of fame.
In order to form the Celebrity 100, FORBES evaluates front-of-the-camera talent across the entire entertainment world–idols from Hollywood to Bollywood appear alongside Swedish soccer stars and American basketball players–creating a truly international list. One third of this year’s Celeb 100 honorees hail from outside the U.S.
Among them: British songstress Adele (No. 9, $80.5 million), the only musician on our list who made more than half her money from music; Chinese actor Jackie Chan (No. 21, $61 million), whose mainland movies make him the world’s second-highest-paid actor; South Korean boyband Big Bang (No. 54, $44 million), the top earning K-Pop act of all time; and Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen (No. 99, $30.5 million), who boasts fragrance and beauty deals with Chanel and Carolina Herrera, plus her own lines of lingerie and skincare.

There is plenty of geographical diversity on the list, but the Celeb 100 underscores the chronic pay gap in the entertainment world: there are only 15 women on the list, down from 16 last year.
Still, there are hopeful signs–starting with outspoken stars like last year’s cover story subject, Katy Perry, who earned $135 million last year and added another $41 million to claim the No. 66 spot on this year’s list.
