The world's renowned musicians, including  Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez,  Elton John, Jonas Brothers  and others have made 'Forbes' list of highest-paid celebrities in terms of their annual pay.

The publication's annual list of the World's Highest-Paid Celebrities has rock legend Elton John as the highest-ranked musician at #14, with earnings of $81 million over the past year. 

 But when it comes to pop stars, Ariana Grande is the highest-ranked at #17, with earnings of $72 million.

She's followed by The Jonas Brothers at #20 with earnings of $68.5 million, and The Chainsmokers right behind them at #21, with $68 million. Ed Sheeran is #23 with $64 million, while his pal Taylor Swift is #25, with $63.5 million. Jennifer Lopez, takes #56, with $47.5 million.

Kylie Jenner is number-one overall on the list, despite Forbes recently revoking her billionaire status. 

 The publication writes, "Jenner’s payday came from selling a 51% stake ?in her cosmetics firm to Coty...while she had exaggerated over the years about the size of her business, the money she pulled in from the deal was real."

Here's a look of some other celebrities  in the list:

43. Billie Eilish, $53 million

49. Drake, $49 million

60. Rihanna, $46 million

86. Katy Perry, $38.5 million

87. Lady Gaga, $38 million

Forbes notes that many of these stars won't rank as high on next year's list due to those tour cancellations.
