TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA / LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA AND NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES ( REUTERS / MTV) -  Madonna is the world's top-earning celebrity, according to Forbes, who claims that the pop star earned 125 million dollars in the past year. The massive payday comes in part from her MDNA world tour, which grossed 305 million dollars in ticket sales. Coming in at number two on the list was Steven Spielberg. Thanks in part to the success of his film "Lincoln," the director took in a reported 100 million in the year ending June 2013. Oprah Winfrey, who topped the list last year, dropped down to number 13, earning 77 million dollars.

One Direction hit New York City on Monday (August 26) to premiere their new concert movie, "This Is Us." The British-Irish boy band posed for photos and spoke to the media. Their film will be released in the United States on August 30th.

Finally, rumors have been swirling about a possible 'N Sync reunion, ever since the former boy band reunited at the MTV Video Music Awards. Unfortunately for 'N Sync fans, the rumors are merely that. Several of the members, including Lance Bass and Chris Kirkpatrick have come out and said that there are no plans to get back together.
