Beyoncé and Jay-Z are the Highest Earning Celebrity Couple, Because Duh
This news isn't particularly surprising — in fact, it's one of those reports that's really just like OF COURSE — but in case you needed confirmation that Beyoncé and Jay Z were the king and queen of everything, here it is anyway: According to Forbes, Beyoncé and Jay Z have topped the list of highest-earning celebrity couples, having made an estimated $95 million between June 2012 and June 2013.
This puts them way ahead of the number two couple, Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady, who collectively made $80 million in the past year, and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who came in at number three with $50 million earned.
Forbes doesn't directly attribute their success to the fact that Beyoncé is the queen of everything and Jay Z is a legend, but they do point out that both are artists at the top of their industry and Jay Z's Watch the Throne with Kanye West earned him about $1.4 million per night last year.
As for Kanye — he actually made the list as well, at number five with girlfriend Kim Kardashian. The two of them reportedly earned $30 million in the last year, which puts them just below number four celebrity couple, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, who earned $35 million.
Now, to celebrate Beyoncé and Jay Z's win, let's all take a moment to look over these amazing Carter family portraits from Tumblr (via The Frisky), which feature Beyoncé, Jay Z, and friends' faces photoshopped onto classic pieces of art. This is what the Internet was made for:
