If the Kardashians have taught us anything, it’s that waist trainers look incredibly uncomfortable…and that celebs make a buttload of cash promoting things like that.
While some of those mirror pics and selfies are straight up vanity, a lot of others are actually business transactions and hell, are they lucrative.
After you find out how much these celebs are making per post, it’ll finally be confirmed that we’re all just peasants snapping pics for free.
Prepare to weep!
1. Danielle Bernstein
Apparently it pays to look good. In 2015, the creator of We Wore What revealed to the world that fashion bloggers make $5,000 to $15,000 a post. Well, now she currently makes up to $20,000 on a post…so everyone can stop saying that blogging isn’t a real job!
2. LeBron James
You may think LeBron James’ Instagram handle @kingjames is #Conceited, but I’m pretty sure you’re free to call yourself whatever you want when you make six figures from one post. The basketball star rakes in approximately $120,000 per Instagram post, so yeah, he’s basically royalty.
3. Gigi Hadid
Diet or no diet, y’all can go justify that sugary can of Coca-Cola because Gigi drinks it — well, at least she gets paid to. The model joins LeBron in the six figure club, making approximately $120,000 per post. Your addiction to soda and mirror selfies is obviously all queen Gigi’s fault.
4. Cara Delevingne
This British model is another celeb who’s rolling in the social media dough — one of her eyebrows is probably worth more than your annual salary. Okay, I’m exaggerating, but actually not when it comes to Instagram posts. The high fashion model makes around $150,000 per sponsored post.
5. Jen Setler
The Kardashians aren’t the only influencers famous for their butts! Fitness model Jen Setler’s behind is also a huge asset, both in size and in figures. The Instagram model averages at about $15,000 per post. #Jealous. I wish I had that kind of incentive to go to the gym.
6. Cameron Dallas
Cameron Dallas is one of those social media celebs where you’re like, “Who da f*** are you, and where did you come from?” The vlogger rose to fame for for his hilarious Vines, but has since become a style influencer. Brands like Dolce & Gabbana are willing to pay approximately $17,000 per post.
7. Cristiano Ronaldo
For a while, I thought all Cristiano Ronaldo’s posts with #Ad were actually supposed to say #Abs… I guess we see what we want. The soccer player isn’t joking around though! All those endorsements are making him some big bucks: up to $400,000 per Instagram post.
8. Chiara Ferragni
Fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni doesn’t just emulate all my #HairGoals, but also my #BusinessGoals. She made Forbes 30 Under 30 list in 2015, and for good reason. Ferragni not only has her own line of shoes, but she also makes $12,000 per post (call it her chump change).
9. Kourtney Kardashian
I’m literally weeping. Kourtney Kardashian makes approximately $249,000 per post. In other words, she gets paid more money then you’ll ever see in a year to make smoothies and lounge around in her underwear all day. If that’s not luxury, then I don’t know what is.
10. Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian is right up there with her sister Kourtney, wearing underwear and nonchalantly holding things for approximately $249,000 per post (#Twinning). The glam life is a tough one… I can only imagine the strain of holding a pair of eyelashes up for a prolonged period of time.
11. Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner might be the highest paid model around, but when it comes to her sisters, she falls in third place for social media dollars. Yep, approximately $368,000 per post, which is less than what Kim and Kylie are making. Jeez, Kendall, step it up!
12. Kylie Jenner
Keeping up with Kylie, the youngest of the Kardashian clan is making approximately $398,000 per post with an ad value of $1,000,000 across social media platforms. I’m rolling my eyes even more over her $360 Kylie Cosmetics brush set now. Like, calm down, honey! No need to be greedy.
13. Kim Kardashian
But obviously, Kim Kardashian is still the queen of selfies and social media — there can only be one Kardashian to rule them all (and break the Internet). Her social media posts for a roster of several different brands earn up to $400,000 a pop… That number just broke my brain.
I bet you thought I was finished with the list, but I’m not!
I’m literally as shook as you are to find out that there’s a celeb making more money than Kim K. on social media. Hint: Justin Bieber is as much her groupie as I am…
14. Selena Gomez
OMG, Selena has come so far! Just to remind you, the starlet got her start on the Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place. Let’s just say that, “from humble beginnings come great things,” and when I say great, I mean great as in, “I make up to $550,000 on my sponsored posts.” #NoBigDeal.
