There are lot of tours and albums that take place in a 12-month window, but only one artist can call themselves the highest paid musician in the business!
Forbes just released their annual list of the highest-paid musicians on the globe between May 2011-May 2012 and the biggest musical money-maker may surprise you. Hint: It wasn't Britney Spears, who came in second with $58 million (boosted, no doubt, by her hefty payday for judging on The X Factor). Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber didn't earn the top spot either, finishing at third and fourth with an impressive $57 million and $55 million, respectively.
Find out who came in first on the list after the jump!
