A couple of familiar names lead the new list of highest-paid teenage entertainers, MTV reports. The list, compiled by People magazine, ranks the teens based on their 2010 income.

Not surprisingly, Justin Bieber tops the list. The 17-year-old reportedly took in $53 million in 2010, most of it from the movie “Never Say Never” and from his fragrance Someday. “Never Say Never,” with sales of more than $73 million so far in the U.S., is said to be the most successful concert movie ever.

Not far behind was Miley Cyrus, earning a reported $48 million, which came almost entirely from touring.

Others on the list include Taylor Lautner, with a combined $16 million for two “Twilight” movies and “Abduction”; and Nick Jonas at about $12.5 million. Angus T. Jones came in at $7.8 million, earning a reported $300,000 an episode for “Two and a Half Men.”

Selena Gomez made about $5.5 million, with Jaden Smith at about $5 million, including $3 million from “The Karate Kid.” Jaden’s sister, Willow Smith, was in the ballpark at $4 million.
