Madonna and Lady Gaga have grossed the most money in 2013 of musicians. Madonna pulled in $45 million more than Gaga to be crowned top money making musician of 2013.
Madonna made $125 million in 2013 based mostly on her MDNA tour which grossed $305 million last year, tour merchandise, her Material Girl clothing line and her Truth Or Dare perfume.
Lady Gaga pulled in $80 million, $160 million pulled in by her last tour. If she was able to finish her tour before suffering a hip injury, she would have grossed $200 million but still falling short of number one held by Madonna.
1. Madonna $125 Million
2. Lady Gaga $80 Million
3. Bon Jovi $79 Million
4. Toby Keith $65 Million
5. Coldplay $64 Million
All of the top 5 money makers have been touring which is where a tremendous majority of their money has come from.

Coldplay performed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last night and it gave them a chance to perform a new song. "Charlie Brown" is the latest song from the group and was received quite well.
We can only assume that the song is based on the Peanuts character. Not Linus. Not Lucy. Not even Woodstock. But Charlie Brown.
We are digging it. Let us know what you think.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
Here is another interesting visual video from Coldplay for "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" the band's latest song from the EP with the same name.
