Madonna is world’s highest earning musician

‘Queen of Pop’ Madonna continued her reign over the music industry as the hitmaker has come out on top of Forbes’ list of highest earning musicians.

The 50-year-old reigned supreme over her fellow singers as she raked in a mammoth USD 110 million between June 2008 and June 2009 thanks to her successful ‘Sticky & Sweet’ world tour, reported the magazine.

Interestingly the second and third positions were also occupied by women. Celine Dion who took home USD 100 million came in second after the ‘Material Girl’.

Beyonce Knowles came in third in the countdown, pulling in 87 million USD after the success of her album ‘I Am Sasha Fierce’.

But it wasn’t all bad news for the boys with rocker Bruce Springsteen and country star Kenny Chesney rounding out the top five with earnings of 70 million USD and 65 million USD respectively.
