BLOG: The World's Highest Paid Musicians...who topped the list?

The unstoppable list-makers at "Forbes" have released their annual rundown of The World's Highest-Paid Musicians.  The estimates are based on total earnings from June of LAST year up through this past June.

So no recent tours would be included.  It's annoying that the data isn't current . . . but that's what Forbes does.  They have one measurement period, and they slowly release these lists over the rest of the year.

MADONNA topped the list with $125 million.  A lot of that money came from her 2012 MDNA Tour.  Like Madonna, most of the artists on the list made a bulk of their money from TOURING and SIDE BUSINESSES . . . not from actual music sales.

 

Here's the list:

1.  Madonna, $125 million

2.  Lady Gaga, $80 million

3.  Bon Jovi, $79 million

4.  Toby Keith, $65 million

5.  Coldplay, $64 million

6.  Justin Bieber, $58 million

7.  Taylor Swift, $55 million

8.  Elton John, $54 million

9.  A tie between Beyoncé and Kenny Chesney, with $53 million apiece.

11.  Diddy, $50 million

12.  Paul McCartney, $47 million

13.  Calvin Harris, $46 million

14.  Jennifer Lopez, $45 million

15.  Roger Waters, $44 million

16.  A tie between Muse and Rihanna, with $43 million apiece.

18.  A tie between Jay-Z and One Direction, with $42 million apiece.

20.  A tie between Dr. Dre and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with $40 million apiece.

22.  A tie between the Rolling Stones and Katy Perry, with $39 million apiece.

24.  Tim McGraw, $33 million

25.  A tie between Pink and Tiesto, with $32 million apiece.

Us Men Think We're Being Sly...But We're Not...

Men think they're clever and sneaky and are getting away with all kinds of stuff.  They aren't.  Women INVENTED being clever and sneaky and getting away with all kinds of stuff . . . and they INSTANTLY know it when they see it.


Here are the top eight things guys THINK they're doing sneakily and getting away with . . . but women always notice.
 

1.  Turning your head away from a woman as she's approaching . . . so you're already looking that direction once she passes and you can check out her butt.
 

2.  Trying to lead a text conversation toward having a woman send you nude photos.  She recognizes the chess moves you're trying to pull immediately.

 

3.  Asking leading questions to find out if she's single.  She's ready to tell the truth or lie anyway, depending on whether she's into you.

 

4.  Checking out other women in general.

 

5.  Trying really, really hard NOT to look down at a woman's breasts.

 

6.  When you're into a woman and accidentally show up where she works or in her neighborhood.  Even though it's not in a creepy, stalker way . . . she notices.

 

7.  Hiding your insecurities by going over-the-top with bragging.

 

8.  Scratching yourself down below.  Women are WAY better at doing it subtly . . . so they notice when you AREN'T as subtle as you think.

Wanna relax this weekend? Get busy.

This feels counterintuitive . . . but a new study says that having a BUSY WEEKEND is actually BETTER stress relief than spending the weekend on the couch.

 

Researchers found that a weekend feels six hours and 19 minutes LONGER if you're busy than if you're super lazy.

 

That's because we all subconsciously measure time by the number of MEMORIES we make . . . the more we make, the longer the weekend feels.

 

About one-third of people surveyed who had busy weekends said it felt like they were off THREE days.  Almost half of people who had lazy weekends said it felt like the weekend disappeared too quickly.

 

The people who had busier weekends also felt more de-stressed when it was time to go back to work on Monday.

 

One more note:  A separate survey also shows a life of lying around might not be the AMAZING DREAM it seems.  The survey found that the JOY of RETIREMENT wears off after just 10 months . . . and people start to get bored.

Things We REFUSE To Pay For...

Everyone has one or two things they COULD afford, but REFUSE to pay for . . . on PRINCIPLE.  Here are five of the best ones . . .

1.  Carry-on bag fees, like the ones on Spirit Airlines.  It's one thing to pay for checked bags, but paying just to bring a bag on the plane is CRAZY.

2.  Hotel WiFi.  It's always mediocre and unreliable . . . and it seems like the cheaper hotels give it to you free, while the expensive hotels charge you.

3.  ATM fees.  Somehow it's always worth tracking down your bank's ATM, just to avoid feeling ripped off by the two bucks you have to pay at other ATMs.

4.  Candy Crush.  The entire game is based on getting you ADDICTED, so you start paying for extra lives, moves, and power-ups.  And once you pay for them ONCE, you'll do it again.

5.  Drinks for girls who appear next to you when you're standing at the bar, then disappear right after you hand them a drink.
