Beyoncé Makes More Money Than Husband Jay-Z, Gaga, Britney, Miley, You

Richer than you.
Forbes just released their list of Hollywood's 20 Highest Earners of 2010, and the only pop star to make the Top 10 is a woman who didn't even release an album this year -- the holy Beyoncé Knowles. Beyoncé made $87 million this year, enough to put her at #9 on Forbes' list. Although she hasn't released a record since 2008's I Am... Sasha Fierce, the girl still rakes in the cash from her public appearances, touring, fragrance and clothing line, and multiple endorsement deals like her long-standing one with L'Oréal. It's also enough to make her the main breadwinner in the Carter/Knowles family -- Jay-Z made "only" $63 million in 2010.

The next highest-ranking pop singer on Forbes list is the Queen B herself, Britney Spears, who pulled in $64 million in 2010 thanks to endorsements deals and a highly lucrative world tour. (Expect Spears to rack up more cash next year after her highly anticipated sixth full-length hits stores in March). Britney makes the list at #13, followed by her peers in pop Lady Gaga at #12 ($62 million) and Madonna ($58 million) at #11. Miley Cyrus made $48 million, which will purchase a helluva lot of salvia, and Taylor Swift made $45 million. Girl power!
