Forbes just dropped their annual “World’s Highest-Paid Women In Music” list and rather than make you click through an annoying ad-laden photo gallery, we did it for YEW! and have the results below.

Using data from Nielsen, Pollstar, Recording Industry Association of America, and interviews with “industry insiders,” here are the results :

The World’s Highest-Paid Women In Music 2017

  1.   BEYONCÉ ($105 million)

  2.   Adele ($69 million)

  3.   Taylor Swift ($44 million)

  4.   Celine Dion ($42 million)

  5.   Jennifer Lopez ($38 million)

  7.   Rihanna ($36 million)

  8.   Britney Spears ($34 million)

  9.   Katy Perry ($33 million)

  10. Barbra Streisand ($30 million)

Important to note, earning double-digit millions but not cracking the top 10 include Madonna, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande.

Congrats ladies, but where’s Courtney Barnett?!?
