But the craziest thing is, Britney didn't even release a new album or go on tour in the last year! Most of the 30-year-old pop superstar's earnings came from her Femme Fatale tour that grossed $68.7 million worldwide, followed by her Femme Fatale album, which was released in 2011. In addition to her music, Britney brought in some extra cash with her Elizabeth Arden fragrance line and her $15 million deal with The X Factor.

22-year-old Taylor Swift came in second place with $57 million from her tour and endorsement deals with Sony and CoverGirl, which Rihanna snagged the number three spot with $53 million. Lady Gaga fell from the number one spot to number four with $52 million and Katy Perry was number five with $45 million. Other top female earners included Madonna, who earned $30 million, Beyonce, who brought in $40 million and British star Sade with $33 million.

Nice work, ladies!
