LeBron James, Taylor Swift Play Well On SurveyMonkey Celebrity Scorecard

By Barry Janoff

August 11, 2016: "Can't buy me love, everybody tells me so," The Beatles first sang in 1964. And now, celebrities such as Taylor Swift, LeBron James, Rihanna and Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson are finding that those words still sing true in 2016.

Last month, Forbes compiled a list of the 100 World's Highest-Paid Celebrities, with a Top Five that included Swift ($170 million), One Direction ($110 million), James Patterson ($95 million), Dr. Phil McGraw ($88 million) and Cristiano Ronaldo ($88 million).

Following Ronaldo, the Top Five athletes on the list included Lionel Messi (No. 8 overall, $81.5 million), LeBron James (No. 11, $77 million), Roger Federer (No. 16, $68 million) and tied at No. 26 Novak Djokovic and Kevin Durant ($56 million each).

However, when it comes to such attributes as "Most Respected," "Most Talented," "Best Brand," "Least Respected" and "Overpaid," the lists of stars and athletes line up somewhat differently, according to research and online survey platform SurveyMonkey.

According to SurveyMonkey's findings, the Top Ten "Most Valued" celebrities are Ellen DeGeneres, Swift, Rolling Stones, Adele, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Garth Brooks, LeBron James, Dr. Phil McGraw, Madonna and James Patterson.

Swift (pictured in her commercial for Apple) is down at tied for fourth among "Most Respected" celebrities, a list headed by Degeneres, who is "only" No. 13 among highest-paid celebs, taking in $75, almost $100 million less than Swift.

The Top Five most respected also include Adele, Johnson, James and Limbaugh.

Swift also falls behind Adele and James as "Most Talented," but does come in at No. 1 as "Most Attractive," No. 2 in "Business Savvy" behind Paul McCartney and No. 3 in 'Best Brand" behind the Rolling Stones and McCartney.

James, who led the Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA title this past season, is seen as being popular but, concurrently, overpaid.

James is No. 11 on the Forbes list, making $77 million, and for that is ranked No. 1 on the SurveyMonkey "Most Overpaid" list, followed by Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Phil McGraw, Swift and Howard Stern.

But people surveyed seem to like James. He is second behind Adele in "Most Talented," No. 3 in "Contributing to Society" in addition to No. 4 as "Most Respected."

Taking into account just athletes, James is No. 1 as "Most Talented" and have the "Best Brand," and is No. 4 among athletes with whom those surveyed would want to "Trade Lives," behind Tom Brady, Cristiano Ronaldo and Eli Manning.

MonkeySurvey said its  2016 Celebrity Measures are based on survey responses from a sample of 2,500 adults in the U.S. across five surveys.
