Miley Cyrus moved up quite a bit in this years Forbes Top Earning Celebrities list as the seventeen year old brought in $48 million dollars last year alone.
She’s the teen star behind Disney’s lucrative Hannah Montana franchise that has now matured into a serious entertainment draw, averaging a nightly gross box office of $1.2 million across 57 tour dates. A starring role in the movie The Last Song, heavy radio play for her hit “Party in the U.S.A.” and her cut from all of those Disney shirts with her face on them add up to a large bump over her earnings from last year.
Miley Cyrus came in at #13, just one spot behind Taylor Swift who made $3 million less, but ranked higher given her copyright infringement issues are still pending.
Thanks @SmileyisMine for the tip!

Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 made $110.3 million in it’s opening weekend and shows no signs of slowing down.
In it’s second week of release, the family friendly film about play toys has brought in a total of $226.6 million, more making it bring in an extra $6.6 million in the second week. Such a statistic is not common with blockbuster films, however with another family film not coming out for a few weeks, it seems as though Toy Story 3 may be holding onto its rein a little bit longer.
Taylor Swift is only 20 years old, but the country singer is sitting quite comfortably on her “Today Was A Fairytale” paychecks.
For 2009 alone, Taylor brought in $17.2 million of income alone. The figures have been released for the upcoming Sunday edition of Parade Magazine when the publication releases its annual “What People Earn” salary report.
Taylor, along with 18 other celebrities featured in the publication, made 450 times more money than the average people profiled in the magazine – wow!
Do you think she’s worth her income?
