Each time a better paid list is deployed, there is often a disconnect between the currency of the place holders and their cultural currency. This year, for example, Katy Perry managed to outperform all of her female contemporaries at number one on the list of best-paid musicians, according to Forbes, with $ 83 million. To get to that place, Perry not only won double that Rihanna – who may have had a better 2018 that any other person, she also raised more money than visiting powers Taylor Swift Y Beyoncé.
Even though his most recent album Witness According to Forbes, it was not a commercial success like those that preceded, the subsequent tour behind apparently generated more than $ 1 million per night. Perry was also able to shoot at the top spot thanks to her American idol judge of money, which came to $ 20 million.
Meanwhile, Swift and Beyoncé can be musical oddities to the extent that the artists (who occupied the respective places, number two and number three on the list) won most of their money solely through their music. Swift won $ 80 million with his Reputation tour (and would have won first place if the tour dates were more in line with the Forbes window for the list). Beyoncé, on the other hand, took $ 60 million from her now legendary Coachella titles and the On the Run II tour with her husband Jay Z. (Regardless of whether her solo earnings or her total earnings with Jay Z were taken into account in her $ 60 million is unknown.)
Pink held fourth place with $ 52 million per tour, while Lady Gaga he followed with $ 50 million, many of which apparently came from his work in A star has been born. After Gaga, Jennifer Lopez won $ 47 million in sixth place and Rihanna in seventh place with $ 37.5 million. Like Gaga, Rihanna made most of her income this year through a film with her leading role in Ocean & # 39; s 8, as well as his effort Fenty Beauty and his line Savage Lingerie.
