Let’s keep it real.
When it comes to building and sustaining a loyal fan base, very few have done it half as well as Madonna.
Now, in reaping the rewards that come with being an iconic, organic inspirational entertainer, she has now reportedly reached billionaire status, after profit from her latest tour sent her total earnings over the 1 billion dollar mark.
Full story below…
After bringing in $305,158,363, her ‘MDNA Tour’ stands as the highest grossing tour of 2012, and also lifted her combined earnings from the 700 million figure to the 1 billion dollar spot…and beyond.
For, the aforementioned 3 million dollars comes hand in hand with a further $75 million generated from merchandise sales and the $10 million she earned from the tour’s TV and DVD rights, cementing her status as one of the highest earning entertainers of all time.
The best part about this?
Well, as an artist whose success lies in the heart of her craft, her earnings are undoubtedly generated by fans who truly trust, respect and admire her undying brand.
Kind of epic, considering the fact of her number of her contemporaries ‘back in the day’ are unable to boast of the same loyalty today…and even more epic, when one realizes that unlike these contemporaries she is just influential today as she was ‘back then’- birthing three generations of starlets all hoping to emulate her infallible reign as the Queen of Pop.
