Madonna Tops Forbes First-Ever America's Wealthiest Female Musicians List 2016

The title of one of Madonna’s most popular songs is right on the money: 'Material Girl.' With a personal fortune of $560 million, she’s one of the richest self-made women in the country - and claims the top spot on our first-ever list of America’s Wealthiest Female Musicians.

Though Madonna has been in show business for decades, her earnings power is as strong as ever. Her recently-wrapped Rebel Heart tour grossed $170 million, adding to her whopping career total: an estimated $1.4 billion on the road alone.

The latest cash infusion adds to a fortune already rich with royalties and the rising value of her real estate portfolio, which includes an outrageously large townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side purchased at the bottom of the market, as well as a fine art collection reportedly featuring the likes of Picasso, Kahlo and Man Ray.

Her secret? 'I’m a workaholic' she once said. 'I have insomnia. And I’m a control freak.'
