Lil Wayne Makes Forbes' "Under 30" List
Rapper Lil Wayne managed to make Forbes’ list of “Best-Paid Celebrities Under 30,” despite spending the majority of 2010 behind bars on a weapons charge. The magazine's list looked at the money younger celebrities made between May 2010 and May 2011 and featured celebs from music, movies and sports.
Lil Wayne was estimated to have made about $15 million in the past year.
Katy Perry, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, LeBron James, and Beyoncé Knowles were also among the celebrities that made the list. Lady Gaga tops the list. The pop superstar made $90 million primarily due to album sales, her "Monster Ball" Tour, and endorsements.
