Kids with the big pay­days

Wel­come back to list cor­ner. Forbes mag­a­zine, an or­gan that knows how to put its name about in col­umns such as this, has just pub­lished a chart de­tail­ing the world’s rich­est tween stars. The qual­i­fi­ca­tion for in­clu­sion ap­pears to have as much to do with the age of the per­form­ers’ au­di­ence as with that of the stars them­selves, but the list still makes for in­ter­est­ing read­ing.

Daniel Rad­cliffe and Mi­ley Cyrus tie for the No 1 spot, while the wor­ry­ing Ash­ley and Mary-Kate Olsen slither in at No 3. There­after, a de­gree of ob­scu­rity (for those over 11, any­way) takes over. The Jonas Brothers at No 4? Var­i­ous nonen­ti­ties from High School Mu­si­cal at Nos 5, 6 and 10? Where are Mickey Rooney and Jack Wild? It just doesn’t seem right.
