    1. Dr. Dre: $620 million Came from Beats deal, sale to Apple
    2. Beyoncé: $115 million
    3. The Eagles: $100 million
    4. Bon Jovi: $82 million
    5. Bruce Springsteen: $81 million
    6. Justin Bieber: $80 million
    7. One Direction: $75 million
    8. Paul McCartney: $71 million
    9. Calvin Harris: $66 million
    10. Toby Keith: $65 million

    Indeed, each of those three legacy acts earned twice as much as younger listmates such as Katy Perry ($40 million), Miley Cyrus ($36 million) or Lady Gaga ($33 million). Justin Bieber ($80 million) and One Direction ($75 million) are the only acts under age 30 to make the top ten; Taylor Swift finished at No. 11 ($64 million).

    Sad to think that Wiggy makes that kind of money for a part time radio show that sucks.
    Plus an added bonus of 15 mil for being America's Judge for a couple of months.

    Gaga is said to have lost money on her last tour, because she kept making the show more and more extravagant.

    Hot. PM pix of a narrow spread, as I'm not very wealthy?

    I went to a Dr. Dre concert (Up In Smoke with Eminem and Snoop Dogg) in the 90s and I had a fucking blast. I loved his music. I was also about 13 at the time :c

    this CD was good though:
