That’s right. Her Madgesty, Madonna. Madonna made #1 with $125 million. Forbes estimates her success to, “the tail end of her MDNA Tour, which grossed $305 million. Madonna augments her income with heady merchandise sales at concerts as well as her Material Girl clothing line and Truth or Dare fragrance.”

Gaga earned $80 million, which is a crazy-huge amount of money but pales in comparison to Madonna. Let the feud continue!

Here’s the full list:

1. Madonna ($125 million)

2. Lady Gaga ($80 million)

3. Bon Jovi ($79 million)

4. Toby Keith ($65 million)

5. Coldplay ($64 million)

6. Justin Bieber ($58 million)

7. Taylor Swift ($55 million)

8. Elton John ($54 million)

9. Beyoncé ($53 million, tie)

10. Kenny Chesney ($53 million, tie)

Some surprises on this list, at least for me. Are you surprised?
