7. Kanye West – $22 Million

The brash star known for his explicit persona, earned $22 million. He was unable to make the top 5 on the list this year. However, his career was nothing short of highlights this year. Among the highlights of Kanye’s year, he gave a very memorable Grammy performance. He also announced his clear intentions regarding running for president for the 2020 elections. How “Kanye” is that? Plus he also launched a new Adidas shoe, which also helped him push the annual profits. We are not sure about where he will land with his hopes for becoming president. However, we can say for sure that Kanye is someone who will keep aiming for the skies and he may land on a higher spot on future lists. It was also a very good year for his wife Kim Kardashian who earned $52.5 million. Not bad for the Kimye.
