Six Richest Ladies in the Music Business: From Katy Perry to Rihanna and Britney Spears
Who's that get-it girl rakin' in all those millions?
Forbes just released its list of filthiest rich bitches, counting down the leading ladies with the most cake. No surprise, Oprah tops the chart. But six musically inclined females nestled up behind her. Well, about $100 million behind.
So which pop starlets are making the big bucks? It's not all that different from your average hour on Y100. But we here at Crossfade have rounded them up for you just the same.
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.Next Page
