Billboard Top Earners
Justin Bieber may have started 2013 by becoming the first artist to score five Billboard No. 1 albums before the age of 19, but it would seem that, in terms of sales, the singer still isnt quite hitting in the same league as the big boys. Billboard has published its list of top earners for 2012 this year, and while Bieber came in at #10, the top spots went to some more established acts. Pink Floyd man Roger Waters came in at #3, with earnings bolstered by his massive Wall Live Tour, while Bruce Springsteen's latest album release and tour earned him slot #2. It was Madonna who topped the earnings list though, having earned $34,577,308.62. Last year. It is the second time that Madonna has topped the list, the first time being back in 2008. The full list is as follows: 10. Justin Bieber $15,944,293.10 9. Coldplay $17,300,144.34 8. Jason Aldean $17,578,651.96 7. Tim McGraw $18,329,167.89 6. Dave Matthews Band $18,903,334.14 5. Kenny Chesney $19,148,525.24 4. Van Halen $20,184,079.91 3. Roger Waters $21,160,131.06 2. Bruce Springsteen $33,443,606.63 1. Madonna $34,577,308.62
