HOW MUCH DO you earn a year?

Forgive us for asking, but thanks to Forbes’ list of the world’s highest paid celebrity couples and its rundown of the highest-paid celebrities under-30, we’re feeling both under-talented and broke.

Here’s the top five in the list of celebrity couples, which is really making us question our choice of partner. (We kid! We’re not that shallow, honestly.)

  1. Beyoncé and Jay Z
  2. Tom Brady and Giselle Bundchen
  3. David and Victoria Beckham
  4. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
  5. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith

Celebs under 30

We’re currently booked in for guitar lessons, as topping the poll of highest-paid celebs under 30 is country-pop songstress Taylor Swift, who at the ripe old age of 22 earned a paltry $57 million last year.

If that doesn’t work, then we might turn our hand to writing popular love songs (how does ‘I love you, you love me, let’s love each other forever, yeah baby oh yeah’ sound?), as teeny-bopper Justin Bieber racked up $55 million last year. Did we mention he’s 18?

One interesting thing about the Forbes list is that it contains more women in the top 10 than men. That’s a far cry from its list of the top 100 richest people in America, which had a miniscule amount of women featured.

For more, take a look at our slideshow of the 10 highest-paid celebrities under-30 below.

Just don’t blame us if you feel a bit broke afterwards.
