It comes as no surprise to us that the 1D lads are pretty flush when it comes to money. Their ‘Where We Are’ tour was the highest grossing tour of 2014 raking in $290 million (that’s £195 million to us British folks) from ticket sales of their six month tour. Combine that with record sales, merchandise and sponsorship deals like the Toyota commercial and they’re rolling in the moneys.
Billboard created their list and artists’ estimated earnings from the last year by combining money made from sales, streaming, publishing and touring.
Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik (it still includes Zayn as it’s figures demo last year, OT5) topped the poll with combined earnings of $46 million.
The lads beat Katy Perry who came in second place with earnings of $30.1 million. Justin Timberlake came in third place making $27.9 million last year.
There we have it, we already knew it but the lads are stinking rich. What do you make of it all? What would you buy if you had that much money? Let us know over on @maximumpop
