Forbes’ 20 Highest Paid Celebrities Is A Depressing List

Tuesday, August 28 by
At least he's excited about this list.  

The Venn diagram of this set along with the set of the 20 most obnoxious celebrities pretty much looks like just one circle.

Oprah’s leading the charge, but Michael Bay is right there with her. And, with the exception of Steven Spielberg and Tiger Woods, the list just gets worst. When Ryan Seacrest is the third most-tolerable person on a list of 20, you know it’s a bad, bad list.

What’s most annoying are the people here that haven’t seemed to do anything not only this year, but in the past decade. Like Dr. Dre. The last noteworthy thing he did was discover Eminem. Do Dr. Pepper and headphones really pay that well?

Tyler Perry? I’ve come to expect it. Donald Trump? Dr. Phil? Glenn Beck? Manny Pacquiao is an outspoken homophobe, but at least he accomplished something this year.

I wish Forbes would start hosting an event where all these people got together for dinner and mingling. I would love to be a fly on the wall for a conversation between Ryan Seacrest, Dr. Dre, and Rush Limbaugh.
