Apparently, living in the material world is no problem for Madonna, as she was cited as the highest paid musician in 2013, according to Forbes, earning about $125 million.

The enterprising songstress made the bulk of her cash in 2013 from the $305-million grossing MDNA tour. Merchandise sold during concerts as well as her Truth and Dare fragrance line and Material Girl apparel collection contribute to Madonna’s moneymaking ways.

Lady Gaga ($80 million), rock band Bon Jovi ($79 million), Toby Keith ($65 million), and Coldplay (64 million) round out the top-five earning musicians on the list. Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, and Taylor Swift are included in the top-10-earning musicians in 2013. Due to two ties, 27 musicians/bands made the top 25.
