In your weekly dose of Beyoncé and Jay-Z  news (joking), it is being reported that the Carters are pop music’s first billionaire couple.

Blue Ivy, you’re set for life.

The International Business Times reports:

“The 31-year-old Beyoncé is raking in millions from her “Mrs. Carter” show tour, which began Monday night in Serbia. The Daily Starreports that Beyoncé is set to earn approximately $116 million from the world tour.

She is also making millions as the new face of H&M.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z has earned millions as co-owner of the 40/40 club, which has two locations in New York, and is reportedly selling his small share with the NBA Brooklyn Nets to extend his Roc Nation Sports representation business into basketball, according to Yahoo Sports.

With $1 billion, Jay-Z could certainly afford the $4 million private island that he is said to have bought in the Bahamas for his family.”

Private island in the Bahamas? I wonder if they’re looking to adopt an adult.

    I think that maybe they are generating $1 billion, but I don’t think that is their net worth. The report seems questionnable.

      No according to Forbes they’re combined net worth is a billion, IJS.

      link to your source please. when did Forbes say this?

      Still questionable. I would inquire after the breakdown of their finances (how much their tours go directly to them after the expenses of setting up venues, paying the tour managers, band members etc involved, how much they make on songs, commission on endorsements, deals with Barclay center and Live Nation). I would also question the figures that celebrities’ press people publish–they sometimes stretch the truth and then the media republishes those figures. If you really read those lists, you would notice that Forbes does not provide comprehensive information on any of that. I do not take facts and figures at face value just because it was published.

    I must say that I just don’t understand what makes these two so intriguing for others.

      Maybe the same reason why you don’t understand is the same reason they are worth a billion. They understand the consumer as a whole and provide them with services and products that masses want. They have a billion dollar mind set not a J.O.B. which stands for Just Over Broke.

    Must be nice… I think they are another example how marriage can be very lucrative and speaks of the benefits of upgrading one another.

    Urrghh – I want Beyonce’s shorts.

    • Anthony

      I know a middle aged man’s opinion doesn’t count, but I don’t like how those shorts so tight in the crouch. It is not a flattering look for anything but a swimsuit or tights.

More in beyonce, billionaires
