Everyone dreams of earning a fortune.
While a lucky few achieve wealth beyond their wildest dreams, most of us have to settle for something a little more 'realistic', looking on in envy at rich celebs and their giant houses, fast cars and (in the case of Beyonce) $100,000 leggings.
To make us even greener, it appears that the great leveller - death itself - is no barrier for a superstar to earn a buck or two. Forbes has compiled it's annual list of the top-earning dead celebrities, who do you think is at number one?
