Britney Spears came out as the top woman earner for 2013

Spears and Swift prove “Girl Power” is alive and well

American pop star Britney Spears has now officially claimed the title of top-earning woman in music, after edging past Taylor Swift. Spears brought in £35.9 million last year. Swift was a very close second earning £35.3 million.

Most of Spears earnings were down to the sales of her current album, “Femme Fatale”, and her popular perfume range. “Femme Fatale” was Spear’s 7th studio. Spear’s is also a regular on American XFactor which has certainly helped indorse her music and product range.

Taylor Swift, who is still only 22 years old, made an estimated £35.3 million. A large amount of her fortune came from her tour which made almost £1 million a night, her CoverGirl cosmetics, her own perfume range and her album release “Red”.

R&B star Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, 28 rounded up the top five.
