Taylor Swift: Forbes’ list of world billionaires

She’s with Elon. Mask among the richest people in the world, according to his list. American pop star Taylor Swift first entered the Forbes World’s billionaire list with $1.1 billion, along with Sam Altman, creator of AI chatbot ChatGPT with $1 billion. The French titan of luxury LVMH goods, Bernard Arnault and his family were found at the top of the list with $233 billion. According to Forbes, in 2024 there was a record of 2,781 billionaires. That is 141 more than last year and 26 more than the previous record of 2021. Forbes added that the elite is richer than ever – with a collective wealth of $14.2 trillion . Swift’s name did not accidentally enter the list: She stole the impressions at this year’s Grammy Awards, as the first performer to win four times the award for the album of the year. Swift’s success is not limited only to the music industry. And only with her presence in American football games to watch her favorite Travis Kelce, NFL ratings caught sky. As for the 10 richest people on the planet, the eight are from the US – six of whom owe their unblemished wealth to the technology industry. After French Arnault and his family, Elon Musk, owner of Tesla and X, former Twitter, is recorded second, with a fortune of $195 billion. He is followed in third place by Amazon owner, Jeff Bezos. Musk’s wealth is increased by 8% compared to last year, but reduced by November 2021, when he became the first man worth $300 billion. Forbes’s list also includes the Magic Johnson basketball legend with $1.2 billion wealth and television producer Dick Wolf, behind American Law and Order and Chicago PD series, also with $1.2 billion. Forbes said that the billionaire class for 2024 would be 255% richer than a decade ago, with a total value of now $2 billion, which means that only 0.5% of the world’s 2,781 billionaires own 14% of the total wealth of billionaires. Forbes reported that 189 people fell off the list, including 129 from China, where the collapse of the real estate market wiped billions out of portfolios. Finally, 32 billionaires died, including Egyptian tycoon Mohammed Al Fayed, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, former president of Chile Sebastian Pinera and Margaritaville singer Jimmy Buffett.
