Ryan Kavanaugh is a billionaire no longer: Relativity Media, which made up the bulk of his net worth, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy today, according to a statement released moments ago. The company reportedly couldn't come up with the cash to pay off debts of at least $320 million.

Garth Brooks pulled in $90 million over the past year, making him No. 1 on our annual Country Cash Kings list. In addition to being the highest total this year, it’s also the biggest single-year payday FORBES has ever recorded for a country act.

It’s been quite awhile since Coldplay was an opening act. But on September 26th, they’ll be an opener once again in front of 60,000 people at this year’s Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park, and they’re totally fine with that.

FORBES traveled to Rome to interview and photograph Perry for our Celebrity 100 cover story. For those looking for the abridged version, we've boiled the piece down to 15 tweets, accompanied by a handful of gifs.

In recent years, Taylor Swifts self-styled underdog label has become increasingly hard to believe, and after last night seems downright impossible: Swift seems to have singlehandedly convinced Apple, the biggest company in the world, to change its mind about not paying musicians during a three-month trial period of Apple Music, its long-awaited streaming service.

Taylor Swift's net worth falls just short of the $250 million minimum needed to claim a spot on our list of America's 50 Richest Self-Made Women, which appeared in the June 15th, 2015 issue of FORBES magazine. But at just 25 years of age, she seems likely to join fellow musicians Madonna (No. 28) and Beyoncé (No. 49) on the list in the coming years.

For Yearwood, there’s plenty of potential for future earnings beyond the stage. She’s authored three best-selling cookbooks, and her success there has yielded a cooking show, a cookware line and, this year, a furniture brand that bears her name. She could be on her way to becoming the Martha Stewart of country—a notion that feels both strange and fitting.

The Rolling Stones rocked Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo on July 11th, 24 hours and 350 miles away from a Taylor Swift show with a surprising amount of similarities.

Last week we launched the latest edition of our annual Celebrity 100 list--but for the first time since its inception in 1999, we ranked the list only by earnings. The result was a very different top ten from last year's version.

Beyoncé claims the No. 49 spot on our list of America's Richest Self-Made Women, which appeared in the June 15th, 2015 issue of FORBES magazine. Among female musicians on the list, she's the second-wealthiest, trailing only Madonna.
