    329

    That any of those fucking talentless cunts should have a dime more than Norah Jones is a tragedy. The world's taste is in its ass. Mandonna has a small cock, but not smaller than our favorite pre-op tranny, Furrgie. Pigs - the lot of them.

    still heart perez.

    Madonne is truly incredible…to top this list without having a major release OR tour IN 2007 is amazing…her recent contract with Live Nation is ot even included in this figure, will be counted thisyear so expect her to top this list again coupled with the figures from her rumoured tour this year and new album !!……SHE IS TRULY A LIVING LEGEND!

    356

    Madonna and Barbra both charged over $300 for a ticket, that's why they are on top. Mariah only charged about $130 for the floor and lower level and didn't do that many shows and only sold out about half of them.

    388

    Mariah released nothing in 2007, shows that she is talented. Why are Fergie and Nelly so low? Oh and where the fuck is Rihanna?! Ok, so Britney might not have made as much as some of them, so what if she didn't make the top 10 - SHE FUCKIN MADE 8 MILLION DOLLARS BY DOING NOTHING!

  89. Jessica says – reply to this


    389

    Shakira deserves that spot with over 140 tour dates SOLD OUT worldwide I'm not surpirsedger tour gross over 150 million on just the tour. Not counting her album sales. Thats a great accomplishment for her at her age.

    Re: Newton – Um…Madonna didn't tour in 2007 jack ass. She toured in the summer of 2006, so those figures aren't included. Face it, she is the queen and will continue to sell music-old and new.

  92. FACT says – reply to this


    392

    "GOD"… I hate to do this, but you ugly losers just drive me CRAZY…

    Fact 1: List is complied June/July 2006-June/July 2007.
    (Madonna's gross net of THE TOUR is included, as is H&M collaboration etc.
    Although to be honest she has earned more than 72 million dollars, it is strange that they show this but I don't care about argumenting).
    Fact 2: To all you bitches, including Madonna fans… please you idiots should know that CONFESSIONS ON A DANCEFLOOR has sold MORE than 12 MILLION copies, and shipped MORE than 13 million… this is the FINAL sale, no other sale are factual so please stoooooop, dudes.
    Fact 3: Isn't it somewhat strange that the losers "Mariah lambs/fans" have piped down their ugly mouths when seeing FACTS pured out?… otherwise they're happy enough to talk bad about Madonna…
    I am not part of the fans foolish war, I love Mariah Carey but I'm realistic.
    Fact 4: Madonna is THE musician, plays several instruments incl. electric guitar. Check your facts you meaningless no-bodies.

    Listen you fools, I am a REALIST.
    Ok, now that I have CLEARED (objectively of course, because your little opinions are totally WORTHLESS, ahaha.. it's sad right?) everything… I'm off.

    Gotta date tonight with a HOT chick… for real.
    And I even had to take time off for this one…
    Mm, girl has got an athletic body… can't wait to take her panties off ahhhah.
    You ain't Mr. Popular for nothing, ehheh ;)

    Bye Bye…

    393

    To all of the MORONS who always talk shit about Madonna….what do you have to say now? How are you gonna try to downplay this? Aren't you even more jealous of her now? Until you can make as much money as she has,your negative opinions don't mean shit.

  97. lucy bowels says – reply to this


    397

    I can totally agree with most of the list except for a few: Shakira? Hilary Duff? Sheryl Crow? Zitney will blow through that 8 million on K Fed's lawyer bills alone. She'll be back in the trailer park sooner than we think! Praise!
