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.

It's rare when an artist tops The Beatles, but Eminem has done just that. Eminem has 2 cd's in the top 10 of that list.  The Beatles had the best selling CD of the Decade however.

Here is the top 10 list of artists and sales:

1. Eminem 32.2
2. The Beatles 30
3. Tim McGraw 24.6
4. Toby Keith 24.4
5. Britney Spears 22.9
6. Kenny Chesney 22
7. Linkin Park 21.4
8. Nelly 21.2
9. Creed 20.5
10. Jay-Z 20.3

Linken Park and Creed?  Seriously?  Hope none of you are NOT surprised by the amount of country artists who made the list as a majority of their fans buy the CD's instead of downloading the music for free.

So how many people will admit to buying Creed CD's?  Where you at?-Dr.FB
