U2 Top Forbes 2010 Music Rich List

Forbes released its list of top paid musicians for 2010 and gotta say, quite a few surprises there. U2 came in number one with $130 million earned, but the interesting part is that the Top 5 was dominated by artists of the 70’s and 80’s. AC/DC came in second with $114 million and fourth place was taken by Bruce Springsteen with $68.7 million.

Only one new artist was able to hit the Top 10 and it was none other than, you guessed it . . . Lady Gaga! Surely no shock to anyone but what was rather noteworthy is that Beyonce Knowles hit the list a full 3 spots and $20 million ahead of hubby Jay-Z. Wonder how Hova feels about that one?
