    How the hell is it that Shakira made it to the top five? AND how did she beat out Mariah? I haven't heard anything fresh from Shakira (Besides that gig with Beyonce, which wasn't that great by the way) for a few years. Hmm….makes me wonder. At least unfitney should have made it in the top 10. She has a decent album!

  25. chad says – reply to this


    125

    Britney didn't make the top 20, unless #14 counts as being in the top 20, dumb-ass.

  26. laurel says – reply to this

    You are so lame and obviously can't read what you type! Brit 's #14 on the list biatch!!!!!!

  38. LookAtYou says – reply to this


    138

    Britney didn't make it? Her net worth is already over 100 million and 8 million is way too much money for someone who sleeps all day and spends her nights going to starbucks, gas stations, convenience stores, fast food restaurants, driving around and having meltdowns. i wish i had it so easy.

  39. Cindy says – reply to this

    Barbra Streisand??? BARF!!! I hate that bitch. Who in their right mind would pay to see or hear anything she does?

  43. Understand says – reply to this


    143

    Britney did not tour, that is why she did not make more money. Madonna and Barbra Streisand had both successful tours.

  44. Daniel says – reply to this


    144

    I'm never suprised when Madonna is #1.

    :)

    145

    damn, what exactly did Britney Spears DO to earn $8 million last year???

  46. Considering Babs ... says – reply to this


    146

    … hasn't had a hit for an eternity, it's revealing which way Madonna's career is headed–the old hag's heap. Their good days are behind them (and I'm a raving Babs fan), and they both only sell the old stuff. Considering the new wealth of highly populated countries like India and China, it's no wonder that their mid-class, who likely haven't had the $$ to spend on music before, are stocking up on the oldies.

    147

    What happened to Janet Jackson??? I don't see her name on the list.

  48. ty says – reply to this

  51. Sammy says – reply to this


    151

    I guess this is only for the US, if not Utada Hikaru would have been included. Last year she saw a single, "Flavor of life" sell 8,300,000 copies. And that was just a single.

    152

    CELINE DION!!!!!!!!!!THE QUEEN OF THE music!!!!!!!AT THE TOP 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  53. Lady K says – reply to this


    153

    What I think is really interesting is that most of these ARE NOT MUSICIANS, they are SINGERS. Musicians play instruments. They're female entertainers. Way to be specific Forbes!

  54. yay says – reply to this


    154

    Wow Gwen at n.6 with $26mil that's awesome!!! She's so amazing she takes care of her kid AND made the Sweet Escape tour the most successful tour of 2007 by a female singer! Amazing. She's the queen of Interscope afterall ;)

  55. dfaaaaa says – reply to this


    155

    HAHAHA MARIAH CAREY DIDN'T MAKE AN ALBUM 2007 AND SHE STILL IN THE LIST !!!! BEFORE NELLY FURTADO,FERGIE,AVRIL … WOOOWW !!!

  56. ERRATIC-ASSASSIN says – reply to this


    156

    Shakira is rightfully #4 because she's an international artist. This girl has been making bank since she was 16 years old…Miley makes pennies compared to what Shakira made at her age.

    Good for her and good for Xtina.

  57. VS says – reply to this


    157

    Hey, put me on the list! I can be Number One or Number 20! I don't care.
    Just as long as I am on the list! Marc Jacobs here I come!

    Jennifer Lopez? WHAT? Her cd BOMBED.

    Carrie did not make that much due to her contract with AI. They make all her money

    and Mylene Farmer ?

  60. MyTwoCents says – reply to this


    160

    i'm surprised Barbra Streisand made 60mil when she has been retired for how long? She's still living off music she recorded 20 yrs ago.

  61. hannah L says – reply to this

    i would have expected miley cyrus to be on there

  62. Miss D-Licious says – reply to this

    I'm surprised Beyonce is after Shakira but I guess that because she was and is more famous in the Latin American countries

  63. Lady K says – reply to this


    163

    What I find really interesting is that most of these women ARE NOT MUSICIANS, they are SINGERS! Musicians play instruments. They are femaile ENTERTAINERS. Get it right Forbes.

    165

    not a lick of talent in any of them (well, Babs can sing but she's a fossil now)

    yeah, Perez, where that talentless, horse faced dishrag of a woman know as Kylie Minogue?? i guess doing whoring yourself for any shabby advertiser in Oz doesn't pay that much

  84. Molested by Michael says – reply to this


    184

    Madonna has always been a couple of rungs higher on the pop ladder than Jackson, Carey and all the other others. She has earned it with her hard work, dedication, innovation, US and international record sales and chart hits. She has always kept her eye on her career goals. She started out with practically nothing in her pocket ($37) and has made billions of dollars. Britney can't even be mentioned in the same sentence.

    200

    u know what is amazing: how ppl talk about Brit and stuff but yet she is still on this list. she may not have been in the top 10 like the other years, but at least she was in top 20. she made more money than some of those artist who did stuff. so obviously she is still loved and makin her money and probably more than u Perez. i bet if she would've been ok and not sick and put out an album and promoted it and went on tour and stuff then she would've been in the top 10!!! so give her some props and stop hatin on her and leaving negative comments and leave her alone
