Forbes: Highest-Paid Celebrities 2012

10. Simon Cowell

$90 million

Hits like "American Idol" don't grow on trees, as Simon Cowell discovered this year. The British music producer and TV impresario made headlines when he promised his new show, "The X Factor," would at least match his old talent show in the ratings. It didn't, but the U.K. version of the show minted a breakout act, One Direction, for Cowell's label, Syco Records.
