Boy group BIGBANG has made the 2016 FORBES Celebrity 100 list, which lists the highest earning celebrities world wide.
Forbes Magazine wrote a piece on BIGBANG and their financial success for their July 26 issue. The piece states, “BIGBANG took home $44 million in pretax earnings over the past year, easily more than the $33.5 million collected by today’s highest-paid American all-male arena pop group, Maroon 5.”
G-Dragon is quoted responding to the figure by questioning, “We made more than Maroon 5?”
The Forbes piece also talks about the beginnings of YG Entertainment and the group and the reasons behind BIGBANG’s success.
