BRITNEY, TAYLOR, RIHANNA TOP 5 ON FORBES HOLLYWOOD’S HIGHEST PAID WOMEN
Three of the world’s biggest female pop starts also happen to be three of the world’s biggest bread winners according to the new Forbes list of Hollywood’s Highest Paid Women. Britney Spears banked $58 million between May 2011 and May 2012, which was good enough for second place on the list behind Oprah Winfrey, who earned whopping $165 million during the same time period. Taylor Swift came in at No. 3, bringing in $57 million, while Rihanna rolled in at No. 4, amassing $53 million, tied with Ellen DeGeneres. Meanwhile, poor Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez had to settle for a fifth place tie after taking home a mere $52 million apiece, and Katy Perry could only muster a seventh place finish and had to pinch pennies after earning just $45 million.
