Congratulations are in order for Justin Bieber, One Direction and Taylor Swift — they’re the three highest-earning artists under 30, according to Forbes.

The Biebs is this year’s biggest winner, topping the list by raking in a whopping $80 million. Closely behind are One Direction, who earned $75 million, followed by T. Swift with $64 million. (Since Forbes’ list looks at the artist’s earnings from June 2013 to June 2014, we can only imagine what Taylor’s income would be since the release of her record-breaking ‘1989’.)

Also in the Top 10 are Bruno Mars with $60 million, Rihanna with $48 million, Miley Cyrus with $38 million, Jennifer Lawrence with $34 million, Lady Gaga with $33 million, Avicii with $28 million and Skrillex with $18 million.

Um, is it our turn to be wildly successful musicians yet?
