Katy Perry top-earning musician: Forbes Mag. Now that just depressing!

1 ( +6 / -6 )

KP might not have any all the glamorous awards like T Swift, but her music is just as good if not better.

Not surprising. She's been blowing up the charts since, "I kissed a girl".

Who is she? Is she Beiber's sister? I know nothing of this stuff.

Waaayyyy too much. Something wrong when an entertainer can make money like that. Nobody is worth more than a few million a year.

My above comment has gone from -4 to +1 very interesting

well that understandable since shes been touring flat out the past year, Taylor Swift still cleaned up at the Billboard Music Awards last month, Katy Perry!? also of note Katy Perry has been around almost twice as long as Swift but Swift has still sold more records than her, 140million to 100million.

???

first, most of her $135 million is from total [gross] ticket sales...this isn't profit

and second, people who put on a 150 concert tour should have a salary cap?

mindless music for a mindless generation. And thats hard for me to say as i grew up in the 70/80s but this "music" is nothing more than propaganda to a rythem. please feel free to thumb me down sheeple.

These new crop of musicians I rarely listen to and I don't know why their so popular like they are!

I don't have a problem with people who want to make money and I definitely don' have a problem with people who like money. But what I don't understand are those who want to make money without working. Those who are always begging for money. Those who are always borrowing. Those who are gold diggers and the worst of them all, those who steal.

Done. (If I could thumb you down again for that non-ironic use of the word "sheeple," I would.

Also, you forgot to add "damn kids, git off mah lawn!" at the end.

"Musician"? Which instrument(s) does she play?

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Katy Perry has sold 11 million albums and 81 million singles worldwide, making her one of the best-selling artists of all time. She sings plays the guitar and the piano. I have enjoyed listening to several of her concerts.

We need to stop referring to pop singers as 'musicians'. Musicians create music - pop singers get paid to have other people write their songs and then proceed to sing them not even very well.

Katy Perry is a singer songwriter so people should read up before accusing her of something.

@HarryGatto and @uniden. I'm not into her music but she makes music so I would call her a musician...?
