Take a bow, Madonna! You deserve it gurl!

The pop idol has proven once again that she's literally never out of vogue, as she easily scaled to the top of Forbes' list of highest paid celebrities.

Her whopping and well-deserved income this last year? $125 million!

We cannot justify our love for our queen enough! We give a huge congrats to Madonna! This pop star shows no signs of dimming!

Just like your awesome grill, Madonna, everything that comes out of your mouth is solid gold! Gurl, 55 is your year!

    I personally don't like the grills, they make her look ridiculous! But congratulations on Number 1 spot on the Forbes celebrity list. That's amazing $125 million dollars! That's fantastic! And she shows no signs of slowing down either. We cannot justify our love for our queen enough she is all solid gold at 55 yrs. old! Good job Madonna.

    She's a rich bitch, but what she wants most money can't buy — youth. That's something all the skin peels, botox treatments, over exercising and cradle robbing she'll never have again.

    I doubt Madonna is wishing she were young again. That's because she's had a fabulous and amazing life. She's done it all and more. People who wish they had their youth back are those who did nothing with their life and are full of regrets. That's not Madonna.

    I've written a letter to daddy…. Sorry but Madonna reminds me of Blanche in the movie Baby Jane.

    Perez why don't you post the whole Forbes article….

    Quote: "The $125 million the magazine estimated the 55-year-old Queen of Pop made was largely due to the massive success of her MDNA world tour, which grossed a whopping $305 million. That's in spite of her album of the same name flopping on the charts, selling less than a million copies in the U.S."

    She made money but her record sales sucked.

    Ummmm… she did 10 times worse then the New Lady Gaga music and yet you pick on Gaga.

    So does this make Gaga the queen over Madge?

    Plus…."in 10th Lady Gaga, who took in $80 million despite having to cut short her Born This Way Ball tour due to a hip injury she's since recovered from."

    Gaga at 10th over Beyoncé, Jayz, Katy Perry and on and on.

    Kinda makes you look foolish attacking her doesn't it.

    Re: The Truth – Her album sold 500,000 copies in the US. That's hardly anything to scoff at. Sure it wasn't her best selling, but it still sold over a few million copies worldwide. Besides, Forbes has always been a douchebag when it comes to giving Madonna credit. Oh well, at least they actually said it. And anyway, what artist sells 1 million anymore? Britney's last album did sell a million, Rihanna's last two albums BARLEY sold a million. People don't buy records. What's more special is when someone actually pays $100 plus to see you for one night.

    goodtasteishardtofind I cannot agree with you more. I have nothing against Madonna or for Gaga or anyone else.

    Madonna is an entertainer not a singer not an actress but an entertainer. That is what people go to see. Much respect to her.

    I was making the comments on a rant about Lady Gaga, either directly or in a simple Jr High type of manner. It is getting worse.

    So I agree with you, she fills the seats as they say.

    The Truth Hurts

    FYI you are right no one sells 1 million anymore. JayZ gave away a million and only sold less then 200K. Beyoncé put off her album release because of poor single song sales.

    Major congrats! She deserves it.

    Re: The Truth – The lat albun doesn`t flop. It sold 1.800 copies. It was the top sold in several countries. In the USA it sold 500.000 copies. FLOP??????????

    Re: The Truth

    So why you want to reproduce the complete Forbe`s article? It wasn`t honest. She sold 1.800.000 copies and this is not a flop in nowdays. You agree with that.

Only The Beatles have more number-one albums in British chart history with fifteen.

    well-deserved? she doesn't even sing live…

  20. *** says – reply to this


    Re: THE TRUE – Considering that she was once a diamond selling artist in the US, and considering that the album debuted at #1 in over 30 something countries, but still managed to sell barely over a million copies worldwide, yeah….it was a flop.

    Re: ***Re: *** – She certainly does sing live you block head..she utilizes a pre-recorded vocal to help out because her stage routines are very physical. I have seen her in concert numerous times and she sings mostly live. Like a prayer was live at the superbowl. She works very hard and deserves that fat pay check!! :P Lady Gaga is just a cheap copy of Madonna and she will always stand in her shadow. Madonna opened all the doors and broke all the records…Gaga just recycles Madonnas art work.

  22. antonio says – reply to this


    All hail the Queen. She is immune to this Ageist society we live in. Her fans will always keep her on top.:). For those Gaga freaks that think Madonna cant/doesnt sing live…youtube her You Must Love Me performance from the Sticky and Sweet tour 2008…flawless!!

  23. antonio says – reply to this


    Re: *** – Ok so I was a bit harsh…Lady Gaga is talented in her own right but dont come in here and try to take away from Madonnas talent and staying power. I enjoy both artist but one is a legend(Madonna) and one is a newbie(GAGA) that tends to copy Madonna at times and has a long way to go…:)

  24. *** says – reply to this


    Re: antonio – Who the hell mentioned Lady GaGa? I didn't say a single word about her. I also didn't say anything about Madonna singing live (if I did, I would have said she can't sing live, not that she doesn't). You might want to learn how to use the reply feature. The person above me made the singing live comment, you walking STD.
