Justin Bieber Tops Forbes List Of Top Celebrity Earners Under 30

Believe it: Justin Bieber made a king's ransom in 2014.

The 20-year-old pop singer raked in $80 million this past year, topping Forbes' list of highest-earning celebrities under 30 years old.

The Canadian superstar, who placed second behind Lady Gaga on last year's list, took the top spot by besting several other pop juggernauts, including British boy-banders One Direction, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars.

Bieber raked in the lion's share of his cash on the tail end of his "Believe" tour, Forbes said, which ran from September 2012 until December 2013 and earned $209 million.

The singer reportedly has a new album in the works, though no release date has been announced.

In July, he teased fans by releasing 15-second clips of 11 new songs on his Instagram account, which is followed by a staggering 23.1 million people.

One Direction, the artfully coifed fivesome who are between 20 and 22, made their first appearance on the Forbes list and placed second, pulling in an impressive $75 million.

Swift, 24, made her fifth straight appearance on the list and was the top-ranked female moneymaker, with $64 million.

The "Shake It Off" singer currently has a smash record on her hands with "1989," which moved 1.2 million copies in its first week on the way to becoming the fastest selling album in 12 years.

The massive record release was just one piece of Swift's highly publicized fourth quarter, during which she was named global Welcome Ambassador for New York City, sent a jolt across the music biz when she yanked her songs off Spotify, and announced a world tour to support "1989."

Bruno Mars, 29, and Rihanna, 26, rounded out the list's top five, pocketing $60 million and $48 million, respectively.
