The singer launched her own cosmetics brand, which aims to “take into account all the needs of women.” Currently, thanks to cosmetics company Fenty Beauty and lingerie brand Savage x Fenty, she is worth an estimated $1.7 billion.

Tom Hiddleston

Vin Diesel

The famous actor is considered one of the highest paid in Hollywood. His net worth is $54 million. The Fast & Furious franchise is a goldmine for Diesel, who made almost $20 million up front from the action movie Fast & Furious 9.

Ukrainian celebrities

It is almost impossible to name the exact figure for the earnings of Ukrainian celebrities – it is not customary to talk about this in Ukraine. However, on the Internet there is general information about the income of national celebrities.

Alan Badoev

The Ukrainian film director and clip maker is known not only in Ukraine and the CIS, but also far beyond their borders. For example, a singer of Swedish-Iranian origin, Arash, received a clip from Badoev. The clip maker’s work is not cheap, but more than once it happened when the director himself refused the fee. According to Badoev, “this happens when I understand that people do not have money to pay my fee. But at the same time, I want to support them and create something worthwhile with them. In this case, it is an investment of my talent in the talent of other people, so that they have a chance to survive. And the budget limit for my work is unlimited.” The clip maker shared that in his practice there were clips for 200-400 thousand dollars. There was also a big musical film of nine short stories worth 3 million dollars.

Oleg Vinnik

For New Year’s Eve with Oleg Vinnik, you will have to pay 40 thousand euros. In pre-coronavirus times, thanks to concerts, the artist earned about $ 7 million. In addition to musical activities, Oleg starred in commercials, but he chooses only highly paid projects.

Olga Polyakova

Mikhail Yasinsky, general producer of the Secret Service agency, talks about the artist’s fees. He does not name the exact amount of earnings Polyakova, but shares how much performers of her level can receive. According to him, the income of such artists as Olga can reach 1.2-1.3 million dollars. Only one of her shows at the Sports Palace in Kiev in 2019 cost half a million.

Max Barskikh

New materials are written about the income of a popular singer from year to year. However, almost all of them agree on one thing – any top artist, including Max Barskikh, earns about $ 3 million a year.

Tina Karol

For one corporate performance, the singer receives 20-25 thousand dollars. However, singing is not the only way Tina earns. The artist became an ambassador for a famous jewelry brand, and also released her own line of jewelry. In 2024, the performer introduced her own perfume and signature red lipstick. Not so long ago, Tina Karol opened an online store for accessories and shoes.

Sofia Rotaru

For many years, the performer has been in the top of the highest paid Ukrainian pop stars. On New Year’s Eve, the singer takes 100 thousand euros. In Ukraine, not everyone can afford such an amount, so recently Rotaru has been working in other countries. 10 years ago, the artist earned about $ 5 million a year.
