Madonna Is World’s Richest Singer

You thought it was Barbra Streisand? Taylor Swift? Josh Groban? Hah! It’s Madonna by a mile. Billboard says Madge tops the list of the world’s wealthiest recording artists, besting fellow 1 percenters Paul McCartney and Dr. Dre. According to Wealth-X’s net worth valuation of the pop queen, Madonna is worth a staggering $800 million. That’s significantly less than the one billion the New York Post valued her at in 2013, but it’s far ahead of Sir Paul, whose net worth Wealth-X places at $660 million. But none of these people can compare with Andrew Lloyd Webber, who’s worth $1.2 billion, owing to “Phantom” and “Cats.” Meow.
