Britney Spears and Taylor Swift Rank On Forbes’ Top Earning Women In Music List!
Yesterday was a good one for Taylor Swift. It marked her 23rd birthday, the premiere of her new video for “I Knew You Were Trouble“, and just the day before it was revealed she was on Forbes’ List of Top Earning Women in Music for 2012. But she surprisingly wasn’t on top.
So who was number one? The crown went to Britney Spears who raked in $58 million fueled by her Femme Fatale album and subsequent tour. But Taylor shouldn’t feel too bad, as she finished a close second narrowly missing the top spot with $57 million earned. The rest of the list, in order of rank, included Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Adele, Sade, Madonna and Shakira.
