Forbes released their list of the highest paid musicians which includes 2 Canadians but #1 has people scratching their heads.   the Weeknd and Drake are on the list as expected but Diddy (formally Puff Daddy & P Diddy) is the #1 earner at $130 million.  The reason people are perplexed is that he didn’t release a single thing this year but he did do his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, had his Cîroc vodka deal and he sold one-third of his Sean John clothing line for an estimated $70 million.   That would definitely add up…
