Many may still remember her pretty face and hit songs back in the day but 55-year-old Madonna is still a force to reckon with in this day and age.
Madonna was named the highest paid celebrity of the year 2013 by Forbes Magazine. Between June 2012 and June 2013, Madonna is said to have amassed an estimated $125 million. The money put her above the likes of Steven Spielberg and Simon Cowell.
Spielberg managed however to land in the second place with $100 million while X Factor’s Simon Cowell came in third with $95 million. Cowell tied with “Fifty Shades of Grey” author E.L. James and radio personality Howard Stern.
Her most recent album “MDNA” sold fewer units than her previous album, “Hard Candy”. Her tour however brought her much of the cash grossing $305 million according to Forbes.
