Do you remember being a kid and thinking someday you were going to grow up and be rich and famous? These celebrities had that same dream, but now they are living it out and at such a young age! Some of these celebrities aren't even grown yet, but they have made the list of the Top Earning Celebrities Under 30!

1 - Taylor Swift

She may be making bank right now with her album Red which just hit stores, but Taylor made the number one spot this year thanks to a tour that made almost $1 million per night for 65 dates. She also is a face for CoverGirl and continues to be popular depsite all her breakups.

For the number one spot, Taylor Swift took home $57 million this past year and all at the age of only 22. Now I am jealous!

2 - Justin Bieber

Justin just finally became an adult this year when he turned 18 years old, but he has been making the money for the past few years ever since he was discovered on Youtube. Besides the record sales, he also has invested in some startups like Spotify.

When all is said and done, Justin earned the number two spot when he took home $55 million this past year. How about that for someone who just became legal?

3 - Rihanna

Rihanna has never made this list, which is shocking to me. She was a busy woman this past year: promoting her album, 85 tour dates, a fragrance line and endorsement deals. That may be why she looks a little tired in the picture above.

To earn the number three spot, Rihanna had to be a busy girl, but that led to her bringing home $53 million this past year.

4 - Lady Gaga

She may have not had a new album come out this past year and has been more on the quiet side, but Lady Gaga still made the number four spot on Forbes list (she was number one last year) thanks to album sales still going strong from Born This Way.

With no new album, Lady Gaga still made $52 million this past year! Expect her to rise again next year as she just launched her own fragrance and another album is in the works.

5 - Katy Perry

Teenage Dream came out in 2010 for Katy Perry, yet she is still raking in money from that album. It produced five #1 singles, which has only been done by Michael Jackson in the past. She went through a rough divorce from Russell Brand, but still made $45 million.

6 - Adele

Everyone loves Adele and her big voice and songs that help with your breakup. Her album 21 has sold over 23 million copies, which helped her take home $35 million last year and a lot of Grammys!

7 - Kristen Stewart

Kristin Stewart is only 22 years old! She looks older to me, but the actress took home $34.5 million this past year. You can claim most of that due to playing Bella Swan in Twilight, but she also made good money starring in Snow White and the Huntsman. 

8 - Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne is the old man on the list, coming in at 29 years old. He hit it big this past year, as his album Carter IV sold over one million copies in the first week. He took home $27 million last year. He has also started a clothing line, Trukfit, and signed an endorsement deal with Pepsi's Mountain Dew...expect big things this time next year!

9 - Taylor Lautner

Twilight strikes again, as Taylor Lautner (Jacob in the movie) makes it at the number nine spot. He is only 20 years old and once the Twilight series ends this month he needs to work on keeping that career going. His one attempt (Abduction in 2011) only brought home $81 million in theater sales! He won't bring home $26.5 million a year like he did last year with sales like that!

10 - Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson continues the streak for the Twilight stars, but he has had no success outside of the series like Taylor Lautner. Pattinson brought home $26.5 million last year as well, but he had flops in the theater as well. Maybe Kristen Stewart will be the only one to succeed outside of Twilight?
