Beyoncé is regarded as one of the greatest performers of our time and now she is the highest paid woman in music. Last year, she earned a cool $53 million but according to Forbes' list of top-earning women in music, Mrs. Carter doubled what she made last year, raking in $115 million in earnings.
Bey's endorsement deals with H&M and Pepsi, the Mrs. Carter World Tour (which brought in $2.4 milli per city) and her surprise self-titled album made her income skyrocket into the nine-figure range.
Taylor Swift came in behind Yoncé with $64 million. Pink took the third spot at $52 million and Rihanna placed at number four with $48 million. Katy Perry rounded out the top five with $40 million in earnings.
