    MADONNA RULES!!! Although I can't name one song of hers from the past few years. How does she make so much money and still have her fabulous life? Perhaps they're factoring in total income (investments, etc.) and not just music income. I guess Babs made a buck or two from "Meet the Flockers" and her Vegas work. I'm always impressed with their $$ worth (Madonna and Barbra)…it's part of being a real STAR that you can, year after year, generate such income. Keep it up Ladys…Thanks Perez for sharing info….I think Forbes is a reputable source, but sometimes misleading.

    Madonna does well because she's smart enough to charge her fan base (gurlz and queens) 400-500 a ticket per show. She know's the girls will spend their Tina money to see her. Go Madonna!

    omg Britney didn't make the top 10? BFD!!! she is number 14!!! still more than 99% of the world! shit. when will journalists quit having agendas. oh wait, forgot, you aren't a journalist. :) and honestly, Brits made more than Carrie Underwood and JLo, and look how hard they had to work for it. Brits had to show up a couple of hours to film a few lousy videos, wave her hands at the MTV awards show, and go to Starbucks everyday to get photographed. I think I prefer her life to some of those others on the list who have to work their asses off!! cheers to lazy money making.

    Who would ever buy a Hillary Duff album….sad.

    Most of those in the top 10 had tours and concert dates in 2007. That is the biggest impact on their bottom line. It is a little misleading - Britney Spears didn't tour or promote her album because she was busy being CRAZY and she still raked in $8 million. Now, that's a different spin isn't it. Always so negative. Your girl Rhianna is not there and I'm sure she had a great year???

    The list is weird, i'd have thought the numbers would be closer together, but the difference between no. 1 and 10 is a lot. Just surprising that Beyonce made it and also that no matter how her album or movies does, J-lo always seems to be on that list somewhere like she has some cash reserves or something…

    WHAT THE FISH!!!!! WHAT ABOUT HANNAH MONTANA…According you "P-Nasty" People were paying big bucks for Hannah Montana Tickets……….WOW…But then again i guess you didn't make the list so there's no point on holding a grudge!!!!

    PEREZ: KIds should not be allowed in your site. Only 18 year olds and above should be allowed on this kinds of sites.

    That is hilarious… after Mariah said she would prefer to be on a stage with a pig rather than Beyonce, turns out Beyonce earns twice as much!

    Suck that biatch!
