Forbes Names Top 30 Under 30 In Music And Leaves Out Many Artists

(Hypebot) – Forbes continues their string of lists this month featuring 30 movers and shakers under 30 years of age in a variety of sectors and industries. Their music industry list is an informative read until one realizes that Adele(27), Taylor Swift (26) and Lorde (19) are nowhere to be found.


Forbes lists the criteria for 30 UNDER 30 MUSIC as "Blending pop, rap, rock and electronic music, with a shot of entrepreneurialism" and as smart, independent minded superstars Adele, Taylor and Lorde would seem to qualify on all fronts for a list that is quite short on women.
