Adele - Adele Shoots To Top Of Rich Young Musicians Countdown

Adele's stellar year has boosted her bank balance - the soul sensation has jumped to the top of the countdown of the wealthiest young musicians in Britain.
The Rolling in the Deep hitmaker has taken over the charts around the globe with her emotional second album 21, which has sold a staggering 20 million copies since its release last year (Jan11).
And her success has seen her fortune swell dramatically - she is now estimated to be worth $32 million (£20 million), according to the Sunday Times' annual rich list.
The new figure is a huge leap from the $7.2 million (£6 million) she was allegedly worth this time last year (Apr11).
She is now way ahead of her fellow British musicians under 30, with pop stars Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis and Katie Melua all lagging behind in joint second with $19.2 million (£12 million).
Also making fortunes in 2011 and 2012: Joss Stone ($16 million/ £10 million) and Charlotte Church, Craig David and Paolo Nutini, who all netted $12.8 million (£8 million).
In the list's Richest Young Actors category, Daniel Radcliffe still reigns supreme with $86.4 million (£54 million), followed by Robert Pattinson ($64 million/£40 million), Keira Knightley ($48 million/£30 million), Emma Watson ($41.2 million/£26 million) and Rupert Grint ($38 million/£24 million).
The full rich list will be released on 29 April (12).
