NEW YORK (AP) — Katy Perry would have been the top-earning entertainer of the past year if it weren’t for boxers being classified as entertainers. Forbes has put Perry in third place on its Celebrity 100 list of the highest-paid entertainers of the past 12 months. She was beat out by boxers Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao (PAK’-ee-ow). Mayweather brought in $300 million in the past year, Pacquiao earned $160 million, and Perry earned $135 million. One Direction is number four on the list, followed by Howard Stern, Garth Brooks and “Alex Cross” author James Patterson.
