Adele, Miley Cyrus and One Direction Have More In Common Than You Ever Realised

Don't be surprised if you spot Adele celebrating this news with One Direction and Miley Cyrus. They may even invite Rihanna along...

One Direction, Adele and Miley Cyrus are sitting pretty at the top of Forbes magazine’s 30 Under 30 music list.

The annual poll, which determines which stars are really raking in the most money before their thirties, is brimming with the usual suspects.

Harry Styles‘ mob of British heartthrobs earned around $42 million in the past twelve months, with their new calendar becoming the best-selling celebrity calendar of all time on Amazon.

Rihanna, who totalled $43 million earnings thanks to her Diamonds tour and Taylor Swift, who brought in an incredible $55 million in 2013, also topped the list.

Bruno Mars has surprised some by his high ranking, although it’s no real surprise when we tally the minutes spent humming Treasure last year. The 28-year-old musician will also become the first performer in a decade to play the Super Bowl halftime show before he turns 30.

Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Drake are among the other stars to be recognised by the impressive list, alongside Justin Bieber, whose 2013 tour has earned him a regular spot in the global news.

No real surprises, but it’s nice to know the celebrity millionaires’ club is just as we left it in 2013.
