Age: 24

Pay: £35million

The big-lunged Londoner's 21 album has sold over 23 million copies across the globe, which is a truly stellar achievement in an era when selling half a million is considered impressive in itself. With hits like Rolling in the Deep and Set Fire To The Rain being some of the most instantly recognizable tracks of recent years, Adele continues to gain substantial income from heavy radio rotation and digital downloads. It's not just financial rewards she's reaping either, she won all six Grammy Awards she was nominated for, including both Album and Song of the Year.
