Tyler Perry is the highest paid man in entertainment according to yet another list in the endless parade of Forbes lists. He earned $130 million between May of 2010 and May of 2011, ranking him ahead of Jerry Bruckheimer, Steven Spielberg and Simon Cowell. In a bit of gender irony, Perry collected some of that cash by dressing up as a woman: Madea. (Forbes)
