Bow down! It’s official. Beyoncé is now the highest-earning black artist ever. Bey has surpassed icons like Michael Jackson, Prince, Janet Jackson, according to Billboard magazine.
Her 132-show Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, which pulled in$212 million, boosted her to the top the list.
Beyoncé has pulled in some big bucks as of late. During a 25-date leg of her tour in Europe, it is estimated she earned about $41 million! “In total, the tour sold 1.8 million tickets—and Bey is already planning her next series of live performances, a 16-city tour this summer with husband Jay Z,” reports Style Caster. One can only imagine how much this powerhouse couple will rake in on the road with their On The Run tour.
Michael Jackson isn’t doing so shabby either (from a financial point of view). The late singer was named the highest-earning deceased celebrity of all time, grossing $160 million between October 2012 and 2013.
