The world’s 100 highest-paid entertainers raked in $5.15 billion over the past 12 months. Diddy, who appeared on the cover of the first Celebrity 100 issue of Forbes in 1999, claims the top spot on this year’s list with an income of $130 million.

Not too shabby.

The methodology used by Forbes to create the list includes evaluating front-of-camera talent, estimating figures from Nielsen, NPD Bookscan, Pollstar, Box Office Mojo, Songkick, D’Marie and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders and sometimes the stars themselves.
