He gave her a run for her money… and didn't even come close!
It's no secret that Taylor Swift is easily the most famous musician on the planet, but we're happy to see that she also has the business acumen to back up that fame.
The 26-year-old has already topped two of Forbes' End of the Year lists so far in 2016 — highest paid female in music and highest paid celeb under 30 — but she can officially add another superlative to her résumé: Highest paid musician!!!

Clowns are coming… and not the murder-y kind!
If you love Madonna as much as we do, AND you're tired of clowns getting a bad rap, we've got some great news for you!

If you recall, the hit maker was in Melbourne, Australia earlier this year and put on a very special show in which she performed Send In The Clowns from Stephen Sondheim's 1973 classic A Little Night Music.
Well, if you missed it, you'll get another chance as the Material Girl will be performing her clown inspired show at the Faena Forum on December 2!
Madonna even took to IG to make the announcement as she posted:
We guess Rocco Ritchie still has bad blood with his famous momma.
As you surely know, Madonna's son with Guy Ritchie got into some trouble with the law when he was arrested for marijuana possession back in September right after his parents' highly-publicized custody battle.
Madge later responded to the dramz by saying:
Madge finally speaks out!
As we reported, Rocco Ritchie was arrested in London for marijuana possession on September 28. The 16-year-old was ordered to complete a drug program and the incident will not go on his criminal record.

Fast forward to Wednesday, mom Madonna releases a statement regarding her son's legal trouble.
According to the Material Girl:
Rocco Ritchie is certainly going through his teenage rebellious phase!
As you surely know, Madonna's son with Guy Ritchie got into some trouble with the law when he was arrested for marijuana possession back in September. Uh oh!
And it seems as though the celebuspawn's drug arrest isn't the only bit of acting out the famous teen has been doing as it's said he's been running with the wrong crowd and has tried to be served alcohol in local pubs — despite being underage! Tsk, tsk.

Although young Ritchie is the child of two famous stars, one source claims he's been spending time with a group of young people from "a local council estate," which has also been referred to as the projects. Huh.
The insider dished:
Hmm… it looks like Madonna's fears were totally warranted!
According to The Sun, Rocco Ritchie was arrested in London for marijuana possession on September 28. The news comes on the heels of the singer's recently settled custody battle with Rocco's dad Guy Ritchie.

Per the report, the 16-year-old had repeatedly disturbed neighbors with his smoking to the point where they felt compelled to call the cops.
One source explained:
"Rocco has become a well-known figure in the neighborhood and not for the right reasons. He's been repeatedly seen acting suspiciously. This incident was the final straw. Local residents are fed up with him acting in this manner and called the police."
Yikes. While this sounds somewhat typical of teenage behavior, we don't think this type of stuff went down when Rocco was in Madge's custody.
Once the police were called, they witnessed the teen throwing something suspicious away over a wall. Upon further inspection of Rocco's personal items, they found a small amount of cannabis and traces of the drug on his clothes.
Following the arrest, the celeb's son was ordered to complete a drug program and the incident will not go on his criminal record.
We'll keep you updated as we receive any more info.
