Madonna Tops Forbes’ ‘Highest Paid Musician’ List

CICELY MITCHELL

“Material Girl” Madonna has lots of money to buy… lots of material things! According to Forbes Magazine, Madonna tops the list as the highest paid musician with an astounding $125 million for 2013.

Forbes also stated that a huge chunk of that change was made during her MDNA Tour, which grossed $305 million. One couples that tour with her entrepreneurial endeavors and some Madonna-themed merchandise and one has some big bucks for Madonna.

Coming in a close second was pop music sensation and former underground Diva Lady Gaga with $80 million. Despite the tour she cut short due to injury, it still grossed a hefty, according to Forbes Magazine: “Gaga ranks second with $80 million; she grossed over $160 million on her latest tour before succumbing to a hip injury. Had she been able to finish, she would have likely topped $200 million,” added the magazine.

Also on the list were entertainers such as Bon Jovi who came in third with $79 million and country music crooner Toby Keith who made $65 million and slid respectfully in the #4 slot. Click here to read more from Forbes.com.

Meanwhile, I found a whopping $5.55 inside of the couch cushions last evening all of which went toward a delicious meal at the local taco restaurant; I felt rich at the time… #ohwell .

Share your “feeling rich” moments and sound off on Forbes’ list.
