Calvin Harris spent the past year spinning his way to becoming the highest-paid DJ in the world, according to Forbes' latest rankings. The other spots in the top 12 belong to the likes of Deamau5, Skrillex, David Guetta and -- yes -- "Jersey Shore" alum Pauly D.
Anyone who thought DJing wasn't a lucrative art form should reconsider, as Harris tops the list with a $46 million salary -- placing his earnings ahead of those of Jay Z, Katy Perry and Beyonce (data for the latter artists is from Forbes' 2012 list; they may have grossed more this year). The 29-year-old spinmeister and producer has released three of his own albums, one of which debuted during the qualifying period for this Forbes roundup, and has recently worked with Rihanna, Ne-Yo and Florence Welch. Harris didn't earn a spot on 2012's highest-paid list, but he now dethrones previous champ Tiesto, whose $22 million intake last year rose to $32 million this year.
