Here’s Some Of The Richest Female Musicians In The US


Forbes is revealing the wealthiest female musicians in the US, and it’s safe to say that these ladies are making bank.

Madonna Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Beyonce and Taylor Swift made up the top 5, and they’re making serious money.

 According to the site, combined, the 5 stars have raked in a whopping $2,000,000,000 (£1,530,000,000) through their various ventures, which was calculated based on career earnings, spending habits, assets owned and other financial information.

Take a look at the staggering amount of money the ladies are bringing in below;

1. Madonna – $580 million (£444 million)

Madonna reportedly made a big chunk of her net worth from her Rebel Heart Tour (which the site claimed brought in $180 million (£138 million)) and also makes a whole lot of money from her investment in Jay Z’s Tidal service and other endorsements.

2. Celine Dion – $400 million (£306.8 million)

Much of Celine Dion’s incredible fortune comes from her shows in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace, where she’s been performing nightly shows and bringing the crowd to Sin City for years. In 2016 alone, she reportedly made an insane $27 million (£20.71 million) in one year just from her popular performances.

3. Barbra Streisand – $390 million (£219.33 million)

Though Barba stays a little more out of the spotlight these days than the other females on Forbes’ list, Streisand reportedly made a whopping $46 million (£35.28 million) just from 14 shows in 2016 meaning she’s still very much in demand and raking in the cash to prove it.

4. Beyoncé – $350 million (£268.45 million)

Beyonce made her much anticipated comeback with Lemonade last year and heading out on the insanely popular Formation World Tour – which added, even more, cash to her already healthy net worth. Beyonce also had a finger in a number of pies, including a clothing line and other endorsements.

5. Taylor Swift $280 million (£214.76 million)

Taylor’s been staying a little more under the radar following her dramatic 2016, though there’s no doubting that her 1989 Tour was a huge success bringing in millions of dollars to Taylor’s pocket. The star also has a number of different avenues for bringing in the cast, including various endorsements and products including perfumes and other merchandise.
