Beyoncé DETHRONES Madonna: Forbes All Time Top Female Singer Earnings List

This list is ranked on the total amounts made since the Forbes list began in 1999 all the way to 2014, each female is ranked based only on the years she was on the list added into one total figure. The Celebrity 100, which includes film and television actors, TV personalities, models, athletes, authors, musicians and comedians, is a measure of entertainment-related earnings and media visibility (exposure in print, television, radio and online).
To compile our earnings numbers, we talk to industry insiders including agents, lawyers, producers and other experts to come up with an estimate for what each celebrity earned between May 1, 2010, and May 1, 2011. Earnings consist of pretax gross income. Management, agent and attorney fees are not deducted. Online exposure is measured using Google ( GOOG - news - people ). Press mentions come from Factiva, and we use Lexis/Nexis to find out how many times each star was mentioned on television or on the radio. We comb through dozens of magazines from the past 12 months to count how many times each star appeared on covers. Twitter followers and Facebook fans are measured using Twitter and Facebook searches.
25. Ashley Tisdale - $5.5 million
24. Alicia Keys - $15 million

Madonna was dethroned a long time ago. Beyonce was always royal and magnificent.

This is only counting what madonna has made on the 2nd half of her career
It doesn't include what she's made from 1984 -1999 you know when she was getting diamond albums.

I thought GaGa was flopping
cantbetamedbtch 30th-Jun-2014 01:30 pm (UTC)

You know if it was just over the past year the numbers would be drastically different for her.
cakelikegaga 30th-Jun-2014 01:33 pm (UTC)
Lady Gaga

2011 -90 million$

2012 -52 million$

2013 -80 million$

2014 -33 million$

Yet, she still made 33 million+ even with a "flop" year where everyone hates her and that doesn't even include the majority of her tour which is selling out. I love that she is successful even in the midst of everyone being out for her blood.
