Manny Pacquiao may have lost the boxing fight, but he won’t go home defeated on the money front. How much will Pacquiao’s camp receive from the “Fight of the Century” bout with Floyd Mayweather?
Comedy and drama shows are almost always a hit on TV, which means the actors and actresses who star in those shows stand to earn a lot of money. True enough, the highest-paid TV actors and actresses of 2012 are stars of either a comedy or drama show.
Judging by Forbes Magazine’s 2012 list of the highest-paid celebrities, it seems the key to amassing huge wealth if you are in the entertainment industry is to neither be in center stage nor directly facing the camera.
Of course, no one can argue that that being an actor, actress, or singer pays relatively a lot. Just ask singers Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and actors Kristin Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner who all received two-digit million-dollar incomes in the past year alone and earned for themselves the distinction Highest Paid Young Stars of 2012.
