Madonna Trounces Lady Gaga for #1 on Forbes Highest-Paid Musicians List

She”s been in the music industry for decades, but Madonna proved she”s still on top – at least on Forbes List of the World”s Highest-Paid Musicians 2013.

The “Vogue” singer raked in $125 million over the past year, mostly from her uber-popular MDNA tour which grossed a whopping $305 million.

Second on the list is someone often compared to the Material Girl.Lady Gaga came in at $80 million, less than expected due to her hip injury that cancelled much of her Born This Way tour.

Another long-running act nabbed the #3 spot as Bon Jovi nipped at Gaga”s heels with $79 million. Rounding out the top five, Toby Keith made $65 million and Coldplay earned $64 million.

Interestingly, if the qualifications didn”t include being alive, Michael Jackson would easily come out on top, pulling in $160 million.
