Beyonce Made DOUBLE of What She Did Last Year
Beyoncé is the richest woman in music, topping Forbes‘ annual list of the highest-paid women in the industry. How much did she make this year, exactly? Deep breath: $115 million. Let that settle in.
Madonna held the top spot last year, making $125 million, and Beyoncé was in a paltry fourth place with a piddling $53 million. Now, according to Forbes, Beyoncé is celebrating the biggest year in her career. She brought in an average of $2.4 million during every city of her “On the Run” tour. And don’t forget about that late December 2013 surprise; her out-of-nowhere album became a top seller almost instantly.
Taylor Swift comes in second on this year’s list, having raked in a not-too-shabby $64 million, but she’ll probably make even more once every behind-the-times aunt gives her niece 1989 for Christmas. Maybe try Beyoncé’s platinum box set instead?
