    Move over Brangelina and the Beckhams – Beyonce and Jay-Z have been named Hollywood's Top-Earning Couple by Forbes magazine.

    According to the mag, the dynamic duo earned a whopping $122 million between June 2008 and June 2009.

    Beyonce beat husband Jay-Z's bank account, bringing home $87 million to his $35 million. This isn't the couple's first time on Forbes' list. Last year they also came in the top spot, pulling in $162 million.

    On Tuesday, Beyonce told USA Today that she's planning a well-deserved break after she wraps her current tour next month.

    "It's definitely time to take a break, to recharge my batteries," the 28-year-old singer said. "I'd like to take about six months and not go into the studio. I need to just live life, to be inspired by things again."

    During her planned hiatus, Beyonce said she wants "to go to restaurants, maybe take a class, see some movies and Broadway shows."
