Madonna Tops Forbes’ first-ever list of America’s Wealthiest Female Musicians
Madonna tops Forbes‘ first-ever list of America’s Wealthiest Female Musicians, with an estimated personal fortune of $560 million. Here is how Zack O’Malley Greenburg from Forbes comments on the new ranking:
Though Madonna has been in show business for decades, her earnings power is as strong as ever. Her recently-wrapped Rebel Heart tour grossed $170 million, adding to her whopping career total: an estimated $1.4 billion on the road alone.
The latest cash infusion adds to a fortune already rich with royalties and the rising value of her real estate portfolio, which includes an outrageously large townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side purchased at the bottom of the market, as well as a fine art collection reportedly featuring the likes of Picasso, Kahlo and Man Ray.
Her secret? ”I’m a workaholic,” she once said. “I have insomnia. And I’m a control freak.”
Here is the top five in Forbes’ America’s Wealthiest Female Musicians list:
- Madonna $560m
- Celine Dion $380m
- Barbra Streisand $370m
- Beyoncé $265m
- Taylor Swift $250m
