Britney Spears Is The Highest Paid Female Musician Of 2012!!!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBritney SpearsTaylor SwiftBusiness BlitzX Factor

Everybody, Scream and Shout for our pretty, pretty princess of pop because it was an amaaaaaazing year for Britney Spears!

She was THE highest-paid female musician of 2012, bringing in a total of $58 million. And that says a lot considering she didn't release a new album or even go on tour.

Forbes magazine named her as 2012's top-earner due to her $15 million X Factor deal, her endorsements, the release of her latest fragrance Fantasy Twist and because our girl's popularity and star power just refuse to die down, sales from her 2011 album Femme Fatale have actually skyrocketed a year after its release.

Lori Landew, who helped sign BritBrit to her first record deal explains why:

"Britney has an electricity that connects with audiences on screen and off, and it is that intangible quality that always seems to leave her fans, old and new, breathless."

So, who came in second place? Why, Taylor Swift, of course! And no surprise there!

Two hot blonde bombshells getting all that ca$h and we ain't complainin' cuz life would be sooOOOOoooo boring without them!

    "Brtiney Spears" and "Musician" don't belong in the same sentence. Ever. Ever.

    Another BS headline by Perez to promote click-through. If you are going to repeat a story, why not site it accurately: Forbes lists her under, "Richest Singers". The only instrument Britney has played is the skin-flute.

    She's a vocal musician. Those t.v. gigs pay very well. Good for her.

    2013 List:
    #1 MADONNA

    Funny how Madonna made $30 million when none of her touring or majority of royalties from MDNA even counted, yet she was #9 on this years list.

    Re: plip – Stay pressed, hater! She plays the piano… ACTUALLY, that's how she wrote and produced "Everytime" and "Someday"… IN THE PIANO OF HER HOUSE! She's a SOPRANO-SOUBRETTE! SHE DANCES LIKE NO OTHER FEMALE IN THE INDUSTRY! PROBABLY NOT THE LAST 2 TOURS, BUT THAT'S BECAUSE OF HER PSORIASIS, BUT SHE HAS NOTHING TO PROVE! ANYWAYS, SHE WILL KEEP KILLING IT, JUST WAIT AND SEE…
