Who's that get-it girl rakin' in all those millions?

6. Katy Perry, $45 million

This California girl is the only artist besides Michael Jackson to have five number-one singles from the same album. We're not too sure we're OK with that fact, but Perry is certainly laughing at our snobbery while dancing all the way to the bank. Her California Dreams Tour banked $60 million. Who among you should we blame?

5. Jennifer Lopez, $52 million

Forbes also called this Latin songstress this year's most powerful celebrity in the world, mostly because she's got swag in a million different ways. From fragrances to clothing lines, endorsements and acting, this diva can afford to drop her man.
