Forbes just released its list of the world’s 25 highest paid musicians, and a few of our favorites made the list! Britney Spears and her $58 million worth of earnings landed her the #7 spot, and Taylor Swift wasn’t far behind, tying for 8th place with Sir Paul McCartney at $57 million. Teen squeal-machine Justin Bieber came in at 10th with $55 million in earnings (and, at 18, is the youngest name on the entire list), and Rihanna placed 12th with $53 million. Who’s #1? Veteran rapper Dr. Dre with a whopping $110 million take-home. All the top-ranking artists have one thing in common: having several business ventures to supplement their musical careersBritney’s Fantasy Twist, anyone?
