Posted By on December 28, 2010

      Grammy-winning superstar, slash wife of Jay-Z, Beyonce has once again dominated when it comes to earning money as she ranks the highest singer on Forbes top 20 highest earners list.

The R&B/pop star's estimated 2010 earnings of $87 million were enough to make her the highest-ranking musician on the list, at No. 9. Britney Spears came in at No. 13 with $64 million netted over the past year, while Lady Gaga closely followed at No. 14 with $62 million earned. Other musical artists who made the bottom half of the list include Madonna (No. 15 with $58 million), Miley Cyrus (No. 18 with $48 million) and Taylor Swift (No. 19 with $45 million). Oprah Winfrey easily snagged the top spot on the list with a whopping $315 million netted in 2010, while "Avatar" director James Cameron came in second with $210 million. (Billboard)
