The list-mongers over at Forbes have unleashed one more list of rich people before the year ends, this one their “30 Under 30” roundup comprising 15 lists of 30, which is, like, so many rich people. The music category is filled with just about every big name in pop right now, and it’s frightening to think that some of these youngsters have been in the spotlight for nearly a decade and are still in their twenties.

Pop’s leading ladies Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Katy Perry made the cut, but the roster was dominated by rich young men. In case you forgot that they’re gonna live while they’re young, One Direction is on the list. Crooners Frank Ocean and Bruno Mars were included, as well as Kendrick Lamar, Marcus Mumford and Skrillex. And we see you making moves, Pittsburgh: Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller were also highlighted.
