View Full Version : Madonna is still the Queen

Just checked out the latest Forbes Magazine top entertainer list and even though she hasn't had a top hit in awhile, she is still the highest paid musician in the industry. (she is ranked 8th overall in terms of power and is the 11th highest-paid entertainer)

Right behind her are Prince, Elton John, Metallica and P-Diddy.

Jennifer Lopez was ranked high in terms of power, but she was only ranked in the 60s in terms of pay scale.

Regardless, it was still interesting to see that all the veterans of the music industry are still on top in terms of how much they make in the industry

Madonna is definitely still a major presense in the industry. I didn't think she was exactly in decline, but was very surprised that she is still the top artist in the music world in terms of salary and prestige.

She's still in vogue, apparently.
