Stream­ing Stars

THE MOST PROMIS­ING young en­ter­tain­ers aren’t on TV or in the movies. They’re on Youtube, fronting their own chan­nels with videos at­tract­ing bil­lions of views. The ten celebri­ties on our list of the top-earn­ing Youtube stars earned a to­tal of $70.5 mil­lion in the 12 months end­ing in June, mostly from ad­ver­tis­ing and spon­sor­ships, a 23% in­crease from a year ago. They’re a di­verse lot: a mu­si­cian, a prankster, a nerdy baker and a cou­ple pseudony­mous gamers. No. 1 again was Pewdiepie, who turned silly snip­pets of him­self play­ing videogames into a $15 mil­lion pay­check, a 20% rise.
