Pay: $45 million
As one of the only two musicians in history to have five No. 1 Singles from the same album, Katy Perry is on par with Michael Jackson. With her smash hits Teenage Dream and Firework still getting considerable airplay Perry is still rolling in the dollars with her 2010 album. Her California Dreams Tour grossed nearly $60 million. Katy also got plenty of attention from the media this year since her split from comedian Russell Brand in December.
