Madonna is the richest woman in music biz
Barbra Streisand was a distant second with $60 million, Celine Dion third with $45 million, Shakira took fourth with $38 million and Beyonce Knowles placed fifth with $27 million.
Rounding out the top 10 are Gwen Stefani ($26 million), Christina Aguilera ($20 million), Faith Hill ($19 million), the Dixie Chicks ($18 million —but that’s cheating because there are three of them) and Mariah Carey ($13 million).
Our dear Britney Spears is all the way at 14th with $8 million, making a killing off royalties and her fragrance line (but wait until she turns in her expense report for Wellbutrin and Cheetos).
