Madonna topped Forbes' Highest-Earning Celebrities list, raking in $125 million this year. As Forbes notes, Madonna's latest studio album was decidedly a flop, and yet people are still streaming out to dance to her many No. 1 singles. The tour that accompanied the release of "MDNA" grossed $305 million, earning the Top Touring Award at the Billboard Music Awards.
The closest Madonna has ever gotten to this year's earnings came in 2009, but even then, the Material Girl made the list with just $110 million. Beating out second-place earner Steven Spielberg by more than $25 million, the 55-year-old star's wealth more than triples Katy Perry's $39 million. Lady Gaga came in 10th with $80 million, so maybe it makes sense for the "Applause" singer to keep copying Madge.
