Madonna Makes Forbes’ 2015 List of America’s 50 Richest Self-Made Women

Forbes magazine announced its inaugural list of America’s 50 richest self-made women on Wednesday.

Madonna takes the 28th spot with a net worth of $520 million and Beyoncé is the only other female musician that made the list.

Name: Madonna Louise Ciccone

Age: 56

Estimated Net Worth: $520 million

Source: Music, Clothing, Real Estate

Summary:
One of the top pop divas of all time. Her tours have grossed an estimated $1.2 billion over the years, including $305 million from her 2012 MDNA tour. That helped her earn an estimated $125 million during the ensuing 12-month period during which FORBES calculated celebrity earnings, more than any other musician. Look for another bump when she goes on the road with her latest album, Rebel Heart, in August.
