    I am surprised not to see Katy Perry, Eminem, and Jennifer Lopez on this list. I wonder if they forgot to include a few artists earnings like Britney Spears or Miley Cyrus' tours….I don't know…even though Billboard did this list…it just seems a little off.

    "Despite his current legal situation, Justin Bieber made it onto the list at number 11, just barely breaking into the top 10!" - I didn't realise that being #11 meant you were top 10 you fucking idiot.

    Both Lady Gaga and Mariah Carey put out more then 3 songs each in the last 12 months and neither made the list….

    yes, how come Katy Perry is not in the list? she's practically everywhere, and always in the top 3 of every best-something list.
