How Has Forbes' "Top Earning Celebs Under 30" List Evolved (or Devolved) For Women In the Last 7 Years?

Did you think a little thing like having a PR-nightmare of a year could stop the Biebz from raking in some serious cash? Well, then you were very, very mistaken. On Tuesday, Forbes released its 2014 Top-Earning Celebrities Under 30 list and, much to my surprise, Justin Bieber is Forbes' top-earning celeb of 2014. Which probably seems incredible to you — it seemed incredible to me — because it seems like the 20-year-old performer hasn't done much for the past year. Well, except for that possible cameo Bieber had a cameo during Selena Gomez's AMAs performance and settling those legal issues that came out of Eggate.

Bieber earned a total of $80 million in 2014, which Forbes attributes to "the tail end of his world tour." The interesting thing about Bieber topping Forbes list in 2014, however, isn't the fact that he actually made that much money but that it's the first time in since Forbes launched the list in 2007 that a male has topped it. (The first was LeBron James.) It's also interesting to note that, with the exception of 2011 and 2010, women have dominated this list — with Beyoncé topping it three consecutive years followed by Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.

So, how equal has the Forbes Top-Earning Celebrities list been in representing the top-earning men and women since its launch in 2007? Let's take a look.
