Silicon Valley Tech Executives' Net Worth Equal to Dozens of Oprahs, Jay Zs and Madonnas

Silicon Valley's billionaire boys club is giving the entertainment industry a run for the money.

The net worth of tech executives like Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google's Sergey Brin blows away that of top celebrity earners many times over. Buzzfeed sourced data from Forbes.com and celebritynetworth.com in order to create visual charts represented with icons of heads of wealthy celebrities like Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift.

According to the site's findings, Zuckerberg's estimated net worth of $34.6 billion is equal to 50 times the net worth of Jay Z ($650 million) and Kanye West ($130 million) combined.

Brin's relatively modest $29 billion is comparable to seven Oprahs ($3 billion), five Madonnas ($800 million) and five Seinfelds ($800 million).
