Skrillex Is Worth $15 Million, Do You Still Think Dubstep Is A Joke?

The official Forbes Celebrity 100 List is out, and while J-Lo topped the list followed by Oprah, Bieber and rest of the usual suspects, it was #92 that caught my eye. Right between Tina Fey and Larry The Cable Guy, I noticed a familiar pale face sporting his signature over-sized nerd frames. His name is Skrillex, and according to Forbes, he’s worth a cool $15 million.

He is arguably the biggest name in dubstep, a genre of electronic music that is a favorite amongst neon-sunglasses-wearing college party kids, festival goers, gym rats and everyone in between. In addition to being the genre’s poster-child, Skrillex – real name Sonny Moore – is credited with popularizing the bass heavy dubstep sound, and he’s got three Grammys to show for it.

While his side-mullet hairdo made him the butt of numerous joke tumblrs and internet memes, Skrillex cashed in on over 150 live shows throughout 16 countries in the last year to the tune of $15 million. Looks like he’s the only one laughing now, all the way to the bank.
