Madonna - Madonna Rakes In A Cool $500 Million For 2012

Queen-of-Pop Madonna is set to make up to $500 million in 2012 from her world tour, new fragrance, clothing and lingerie line.
According to Live Nation, the 'Material Girl' hitmaker will make $300 million from her Mdna world tour including $240M from ticket sales and a further $40M from the added South America and Australia shows. This is not to mention the $75M she's thought to approximately make in tour merchandise and $10M in Dvd and TV rights for its broadcasting. Madonna's recent MACy's exclusive perfume, 'Truth or Dare' is estimated to make $60M according to 'Women's Wear Daily'. The fragrance was launched at MACy's Herald Square in April; 300 of the perfume kits (which included two sprays, a lotion, a T-shirt, the deluxe edition of the Mdna album plus a Blu-Ray copy of the 'Truth or Dare' documentary, all worth $151) were presold but buyers were not allowed to get them signed or get a photo with the 53-year-old pop star and instead were gathered into a tent for a brief press conference.
Insiders reveal Madonna also earned $10M from her recent Smirnoff vodka deal where a 'Madonna' edition of the bottle was designed. Retail experts estimate a further $5M will be made from the release of her 'Material Girl' clothing line and MACy's lingerie line.

Madonna is the smartest, multi-faceted female recording artist out there. That's why she's still there. Love her or hate her you can't deny she knows how tomake it happen. She could kick ass with most of the men out there too. Madonna made it happen at a time wgen it was so much more difficult for women solo artists. She paved the way for the Rihannas,(who always acknowledges that), the Gaga's, KP's, Britney's etc and there's been no breakdowns, no rehab, no drugs problems! The woman is a phenomenon and it's time sge got the respect she deserves. Madonna is an inspiration.
