Beyoncé Tops Forbes Highest Paid Women in Music

2017 has been the year of pay gap and earning and Forbes hasn't missed a beat with this ongoing discussion.

Beyoncé has recently been announced as Forbes highest paid women in music, with a whopping $105 million pre-tax for the period between June 2016 and June 2017.

That’s 79.31 million pounds for those of us living in the UK.

Whoever said a woman can’t have it all, evidently hasn’t met the formidable singer/actress who gave birth to twins, Sir and Rumi earlier this year.

The top 10 female earners include;


1.Beyoncé: $105 million
2. Adele: $69 million
3. Taylor Swift: $44 million
4. Celine Dion: $42 million
5. Jennifer Lopez: $38 million
6. Dolly Parton: $37 million
7. Rihanna: $36 million
8. Britney Spears: $34 million
9. Katy Perry: $33 million
10. Barbra Streisand: $30 million

Now really is the time to ask your boss for a pay increase!
