Rihanna ($26 million)
She only played 9 dates during the scoring period, which made her lower on the list. However, she’s finally coming out with a new album and probably a tour in the coming months, so you won’t have to feel sorry for her about ‘only’ making $26 million next year.
Mariah Carey ($27 million)
In May of this year the diva joined the ranks as a resident performer in Las Vegas.
Miranda Lambert ($28.5 million)
She scored Female Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year and the Album of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards, all part of a huge year of diverse income streams.
Jennifer Lopez ($28.5 million)
Although she only played 5 concerts during the scoring period, she made double digit millions as a judge on “American Idol.”

Her Planet Hollywood residency in Las Vegas is what’s bringing in the dough these days. She also cashes in on her global lingerie line.
