By: Taren Vaughan
Beyoncé and Jay-Z have much reason to be pinned as a power couple in the industry. As a unit, the two entertainers pack a crazy amount of star power. But even when you look at what they accomplished solo, Beyoncé and Jay-Z each have made major moves when it comes to various aspects of their careers. Jay-Z has added to his business resume by becoming part owner of the NBA team the Brooklyn Nets. His wife on the other hand has been landing major endorsement deals, acting roles and been diligently working on her fifth studio album, one that is already receiving much praise well before it officially drops. Along with doing a documentary and performing at half time during the Super Bowl, whispers have also hinted that Beyoncé will be covering Vogue Magazine in March of next year. And despite their busy schedules, the couple has not turned a deaf ear to the troubles that our country is facing, both of them doing their part to make a difference.
From clothing lines to cosmetics and an ever growing list of other things that they have under their belts, there isn’t much left that Bey and Jay haven’t tried their hand at. And all the dough that the Carters have both brought to the table this year from their multiple streams of income has landed them at the very top of VIBE TV’s list of highest paid celebrity couples, Beyoncé and Jay-Z beating out some healthy competition to gain the title:
Beyoncé and Jay-Z slide into the number 1 slot of VIBE TV’s Highest Paid Couples of 2012. Sacking last year’s king and queen of green, Giselle Bunchen and Tom Brady, Jayoncé raked in a cool $78 million this year. The beat out other A-list couples, including Will and Jada, David and Victoria Beckham and Angelina and Brad.
The couple was also named the highest paid couple of the world by Forbes earlier this year.
Although never taking their parenting duties lightly at all, Beyoncé and Jay-Z rarely ever rest when it comes to their careers, both entertainers always finding ways to make their pockets just a little thicker.
