It’s amazing to see the success that some of these celebrities have achieved. Growing up, one can only imagine a life of wealth, fame and astonishing success in their desired field of interest. Of course, these things would only matter if you were to choose a career in showbiz. Whether they are fashion designers, models, socialites, musicians or actors, these ten celebrities have given the world every reason to believe they will soon follow the lead in being some of the youngest billionaires in the world. Depending on their successive field, album sales, tours, merchandise, critically acclaimed clothing lines, a massive social media following, earnings from songwriting, and so much more plays into their growing net worth, which is poised to surpass the billion dollar mark by age 30. For singers, in particular, if their marketing campaigns continue to soar with a high amount of album and tour sales, the likes of Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift will most definitely hit billion dollar status by 30. See the list of 10 young celebs poised to become billionaires before they turn 30 years old.
10. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is showing her musical peers how to sell records and make serious money in the business. Let’s face it, the music industry is dying out, and musicians are barely able to get their fans buying a copy — but not Swift’s fans. Taylor, who proudly boasts of having a collection of albums which have all surpassed sales of 5 million copies, continues to outshine the likes of Ariana Grande and Rihanna. Taylor writes all of her own songs, her latest album 1989, sold 10 million copies worldwide, and she has one of the biggest-grossing tours every time she heads on the road. If she keeps this up, she’ll most definitely be a billionaire by 30.
9. Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber’s career took a slump when all the scandals started surrounding him, but the pop star seems to have bounced back rather fast. At just 21, Justin’s net worth stands at $200 million. Furthermore, when one considers the forthcoming projects that Bieber is preparing to unveil, such as his newest fragrance, a new album, another tour, along with movies and merchandise, he is most likely going to push for another $150 million in the next 2 years alone. His net worth is rapidly growing, and if he continues to expand his brand, he will be a billionaire in no time.
8. Miley Cyrus
Love her or hate her, Miley Cyrus knows how to market herself to the right audience at the right time. Having been a top-charting artist since the age of 15, Miley is well on her way to billionaire status, thanks to her notoriously grown popularity across the globe. Music and touring make her the most money, but one shouldn’t forget that Miley is also an actress. If she continues to embark a journey in the field of Hollywood blockbusters, her net worth would surely skyrocket.
You may think that Adele’s measly $75 million net worth would never get her to billionaire status, but the truth to the matter is that Adele could be a billionaire right now if she wanted to be. Having infamously turned down a world tour to support her album 21, Adele missed out on an incredible $200 million in sales alone. She has consistently delayed her follow-up album, which has sort of stalled her net worth at the same time. Last but not least, Adele has often been approached with Vegas residency offers, offering a whopping $100 million for every year she decides to sign on. So, if Adele really wanted to move up those net worth numbers, it wouldn’t be that hard for her.
6. Kylie and Kendall
Kylie and Kendall have been named two of the most influential young adults in Hollywood, having grossed a ridiculous amount of followers on social media. The internet platform that they have has allowed these two girls to brand themselves in all ways possible, having already launched their own nail polish, make-up brand, clothing lines with Pac-Sun and Topshop, along with their very own mobile app. With all of their success, Kendall continues to travel the world as one of the most ambitious “supermodels” in the industry, making millions for sponsored campaigns, including Versace, and more. These girls are ready to dethrone the Kardashian sisters in no time, that’s for sure.
5. One Direction
One Direction has made a ridiculous amount over the years, thanks to her successful albums, which have been released year-to-year. While you could argue that an album every year is over the top, their fans aren’t complaining when they purchase the CDs as soon as they go on sale. With their loyal fan base, their record-breaking album sales, sold out arena tours, merchandise, movie deals and endorsements, if the boys in One Direction stick around until they are thirty years old, the group will certainly have made a combined worth more than $1 billion.
4. Willow and Jaden Smith
Willow and Jaden Smith could quite possibly follow in the footsteps of Kendall and Kylie, having already established their own careers in Hollywood. Willow, who enjoys acting and singing, is also said to be interested in modeling, while brother Jaden is hoping to expand his knowledge in the film industry, having already been lined up to star in several upcoming films. One can already imagine that their brands will expand to clothing lines, book deals, TV shows, albums, reality programs, and so much more.
3. Justin Dior Combs
Justin Dior Combs is wildly known as one of Sean Combs’ sons, or better yet, an aspiring NFL player. But what a lot of people don’t know is that Justin is actually one of the first people in line to receive a share in all of his father’s companies, including Revolt TV, Ciroc Vodka, along with the Bad Boy record label and his involvement in multiple television shows. Diddy, who hopes to keep his legacy going through his kids, could quite possibly make Justin a billionaire before he is 30 by just handing him over shares in his companies.
2. Lourdes Leon
Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, is another young Hollywood star that could potentially become a billionaire before she hits 30. Why? Well, Madonna has already made sure that Lourdes is just as motivated and hard working as her mother is, having launched their collaborative Material Girl clothing line together. It is believed that Lourdes will soon take over the company once she finishes college, and if things go as planned, she could quite possibly turn the clothing line into a billion dollar empire. Especially with her famous mother backing the project.
1. Mary-Kate, Ashley Olsen
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen may be close to hitting 30, and while they are far from billionaires, a lot of people are not aware of the fact that their businesses alone have already surpassed that mark. From book deals, movies, earnings from their past TV appearances and an incredibly successful clothing line at hand, these twins are so-to-say, self-made billionaires. It is believed that if Mary-Kate and Ashley were to sell off their clothing line, their net worth would instantly surpass the billion dollar mark, and that’s excluding all of the other businesses that these two have set up for themselves.
