Get ya money up! R&B/pop superstars Rihanna and Beyonce were recently named as Forbes’ top 25 highest-paid musicians of 2012.Rihanna came in at number 12, raking in $53 million. “The Barbados-born diva has parlayed the success of her music into lucrative sidelines: endorsements with the likes of Vita Coco and Nivea, a fragrance called Reb’l Fleur and a heavy touring schedule, to name a few,” according to Forbes.
Coming in at number 18 on the charts, Beyonce earned $40 million this year. “After giving birth to baby Blue Ivy in January, Beyoncé took a break from her hectic touring schedule. But she still earns big from old hits, new album 4 and non-musical ventures like her House of Dereon clothing line and endorsement deals with companies like L’Oreal and DirecTV,” Forbes reports.
It looks like these women have more money coming in in 2013. Rihanna will kick off her Diamonds World Tour in March 2013. Beyonce is set to headline the superbowl halftime show on Feb. 3, 2013, and is said to be working on her fifth studio album.
