      • Rima January 3, 2015

        Gaga has tours that did 3 times better than Katy and Rihanna highest grossing tours. Eat that.

      • Hmnnnn January 3, 2015

        Welcome to 2015…where Gaga is a has-been.

    • You tried January 3, 2015

      Not Rihanna fans asking bout GAGA who is clearly paid much higher than Rihanna’s whole career lol and WHERE IS RIHANNA AND EM ON THIS LIST??????? CRICKETS. COME ON NAVY WITH UR EXCUSES

      • Whoppppsssss January 3, 2015

        NO MARIAH ????

    • JOHNVIDAL January 3, 2015

      Gaga who? Are you retarded? So after all the backlash of the last two years, no radio support and more, and she still is the 7th biggest touring act of the year and you say who? LOLOLOL

  2. Kunty Perrism January 3, 2015

    Katy Perry above Beyonce and Jay-Z…..??? hahahahahaha

    • Moo I am MOOriah January 3, 2015

      21 shows compared to 106. You do the math dummy

      • Meowww January 3, 2015

        but..still below Katy. 😀

    • Rima January 3, 2015

      Basic Perry is trash and doesn’t deserve being ahead of Bey or Gaga

      • Moo I am MOOriah January 3, 2015

        But Beyoncé is right below Katy with just 21 shows. Katy did 106!

      • Meowww 2 January 3, 2015

        Katy above Beyonce, who cares about Scamyonce.

    • metzo January 3, 2015

      LOL @ your ignorance!
      OTR: 21 shows
      Prismatic: 106 shows.

      • Meowww 2 January 3, 2015

        …still Scamyonce is blow Katy. The final positions matters. Scamyonce is just wasting her time with her lame husband.

    • The Truth Emeritus January 3, 2015

      Bey and Jay only did 21 shows versus Katy Perrys 106 shows. If they would have done at least 5 more shows they would have topped the list.

    • GILBERTO January 3, 2015

      @Kunty Perrism

      You just dig a big hole for your ass, ugly ass b****. Not only OTR was more successful than Floprism Parking Lot Tour, this s*** couldn’t even dream to beat Mrs Slay Show Tour.

      • Whoppppsssss January 3, 2015

        …still Perry is above Flopyonce and her a** husband overall. Please stay pressed.

    • Opssssssa January 3, 2015

      Praying for you ugly people who think Beyonce is the “queen”.

      Too funny…. lmfao

  3. Rima January 3, 2015

    Gaga did good.. I thought yall said Miley took Gagas spot lmfao doesn’t look like it. Wheres Lana on the list?

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

      You just had to bring Lana didn’t you? Rosie is gonna drag you to the depths of hell and back. You’ve been warned.

    • Lanas a F.L.O.P. January 3, 2015

      Really not surprised Lana isn’t on the list who would wanna see a depressed b**** with daddy issues and s***** vocals anyways.

      • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* January 3, 2015

        But Ultraviolence AND born to die both sold over s million copies. I’m guessing you’re a lil Kremlin fan, so go worry about royal having enough diapers with her mother being a wash up and all

    • Rosie January 3, 2015

      Worry about F*** and her $100 million gross decline.

  4. DanYiel Teflon January 3, 2015

    Not many people of color on the list I say congrats Jay Z & Beyonce…

    • RCi January 3, 2015

      I’m surprised more ppl didn’t notice that. Beyonce and Jay are the only black people on that list… thats awful. We should be supporting more black artists.

  5. metzo January 3, 2015

    Congrats to Katy!
    And Yasss @ Bey x Jay having the 2nd Highest Average gross only behind the Rolling stones!
    The Boys be slaying on the low tho 😀

    • metzo January 3, 2015

      I know you’re not talking about the Beyhive.

      • CATFISH CAREY January 3, 2015


  7. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

    Wow. The old folks are killing it. Congrats to everybody, I guess. And thanks Sam for luring us with the Camels. Sam probably wrote this article and gave it David. Slayvid doesn’t write short ass articles like this one, but Sam is the boss.
    The Camels did good. Congrats to them. I hope the fleas don’t cling to their joint tour being the highest grossing tour just because it was about 20 dates. If it ain’t the highest of all time, then y’all need to stop with that shiit. Nobody is fazed or even impressed with the reach.

    • Career Ender January 3, 2015

      13 pressed lines from a struggling IT student who resides in the shacks of Soshanguve
      bitter evil b**** who prospers at nothing
      remain livid methuselah creature!!!!

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

        @Career Struggles
        OMG LOL!!!! Not Soshanguve. That’s a good one. I live in Silverlakes so pop your collar. Don’t you live in the rat-infested Alexander? You are a street vender. You have to travel so far just to set up your stand at the taxi ranks, selling all kinds of you know what.
        Lol Alex boy. You and your loved ones are practically calling those rats family. Y’all eat those juicy rats like normal humans eat chicken. You must be excited about the bridge linking Alex to Sandton. No more road trips for y’all. I can’t believe you tried that. 😀

  8. Beysus January 3, 2015

    Only 21 dates!!! Slay a bit, Bey!!!!

    • OHLALA January 3, 2015


      • Beysus January 3, 2015

        Aaaand no one cares…

    • Britney Stan January 3, 2015

      It doesn’t matter Katy still beat bey and her camel husband

      • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* January 3, 2015

    • Career Ender January 3, 2015

      your comments make you seem like you are livid all the times, drop them caps bro, they don’t make you seem successful

      • CATFISH CAREY January 3, 2015


  10. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

    You just had to bring Lana didn’t you? Rosie is gonna drag you to the depths of hell and back. You’ve been warned.

    • I die 4 nicki January 3, 2015


  11. Carmen January 3, 2015

    Most of the people on that list released albums that have flopped

  12. @RealMattPhoenix January 3, 2015

    Glad my gagz is in the top 10. Hopefully next year we’ll see rihanna and nicki in the top 10 as well.
    Hahaha I want to know where the village goat lana fad Rey is on this chart?
    Oop. Missing just like on all the other charts you’d think she’d appear on according to her 2 stans on this site.
    I’m not even gonna address grammyless perry, it might be the last year I can use the grammyless read

    • Lanas a F.L.O.P. January 3, 2015

      Lana is such a non factor hope that b**** Rosie goes into hiding.

      • @RealMattPhoenix January 3, 2015

        I bet rosie is a dirty little girl. I mean all that time she spends going into holes, hiding away whenever lana proves her ultraFlopage must be taking its toll on her

    • Career Ender January 3, 2015

      Katy Perry scalped flopga in all fronts:
      -grammy nominations
      -hot 100
      -billboard 200
      -single sales
      do the maths and see who’s the queen of charts and whose the lessor

      • JOHNVIDAL January 3, 2015

        Really? Do the match of who has sold more albums, who has more grammy nominations and who actually has more grammys. Hmm yeah right that´s the answer. You´re pathetic. Especially for downplaying real and raw talent.

  13. Royalkev January 3, 2015

    Top 5! Over 100 million earned from 21 shows! That summer tour slayed!!!!

  14. Lanas a F.L.O.P. January 3, 2015

    All that s*** Rosie talked but where is Lana on the list? Oh nowhere to be found ki.

    Congrats Gaga,Bey, and Miley for actually making the list unlike some lessers.

  15. Whoppppsssss January 3, 2015

    Katy Perry above the “Queen Beyawnze” ??? That’s funny.

    • Lanas a F.L.O.P. January 3, 2015

      But wheres Lana?

  16. gilbert January 3, 2015

    Bruh, for the Carters to be up there and earn over $100 million from just 21 shows is f****** insane. JUST 21 F****** SHOWS. An average of $6 million per night, if that’s not powerful, then idk what is. If OTR had more dates, they would be up there and might dethrone 1D. Congrats to all! 🙂

  17. OHLALA January 3, 2015



  18. Mediocreyonce January 3, 2015

    Praying for those ugly lame Beyonce stans who think she is the new ‘queen’. Too funny eh? I know.

    😆 😆 😆

  19. Britney Stan January 3, 2015

    Yes at Katy slaying thiefyonce!

    • RCi January 4, 2015

      Where is Britney b*tch?

  20. R0SIE January 3, 2015

    #4 Katy
    #5 Beyonce

    This is so sweet. Ya’ll can shove Drunk In Love wh*re up to your delusional empty skulls and asses.

  21. Nice Try Tho January 3, 2015

    Scamyonce and her husband below Katy are just…TRAGIC!

  22. Dark Horse January 3, 2015

    Congrats Katy for being the top female in music of 2014 and you didn’t have to strip like Bey did. Katy is QUEEN.

    Grammys 2015 here we come.

  23. Meowww 3 January 3, 2015

    Katy Perry tops year end poll for female.

    😀 😀 😀

  24. Mimi4Ever January 3, 2015

    Katy Perry doesn’t need a man to be on top like Beyonce and her gorilla-like husband.

    • Dark Horse January 3, 2015

      Aint that truth

    • Dark Horse January 3, 2015

      Aint that the truth

    • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 3, 2015

      “Katy Perry doesn’t need a man to b on top like Beyoncé”
      First of all Beyoncé is in the top5 highest grossing tours by a female artist. A list basic payola is nonexistent on. Might I add she did that on her own.
      Second of all Beyoncé doesn’t need jay z to tour. Her receipts on her own are far more impressive than his and ms.Payola’s as well. This is Jay’s 1st tour to gross 100mill+ while its like Bey’s 3rd.
      Third of all yes Ms.payola is ahead of Bey. But by how much tho?? 106 vs just 21 dates and the gap between the grosses isn’t that big!! *Sigh* Don’t even know why I’m trying to reason with you. You must be 12 or 13 based on your inability to reason & the fact that u Stan for Payola Perry

  25. Mark111 January 3, 2015

    You guys are still fighting over OTHER people’s success? #Yawwnnnnn #LeaveItIn2014Please

  26. MariahIsMusic1 January 3, 2015

    Slay Ms CARTER. The greatest female entertainer of our time.

    • Dark Horse January 3, 2015

      Yet she’s below Katy.

      • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 3, 2015

        Yet Beyoncé is on the list of highest grossing tours for a female. Yet payola Perry is nonexistent on that list!!

      • MariahIsMusic1 January 3, 2015

        You’re clearly delusional @ this point. You can’t compare 21 shows to 106 shows firstly it doesn’t even make sense. The average gross per show of OTR destroys every tour there expert The Rolling Stones I guess simmer down gerl.

      • Dark Horse January 3, 2015


        Idk Katy is still above that overrated b**** Beyonce you bey fans can stay madT.

      • MariahIsMusic1 January 3, 2015

        Beyhive shouldn’t even entertain such delusions tbh.

  27. MariahIsMusic1 January 3, 2015

    Beyonce’s Tour Receipts will be epic.

  28. OVO Elijah January 3, 2015

    My week keeps getting better.
    First Elijah’s sales and now this.

    • Prismatic January 3, 2015

      Not you celebrating your fave’s flop sales now imagine how badly he will flop when your irrelevant fave eventually releases his own album

      • OVO Elijah January 3, 2015

        Oh you poor miserable b****! You should be celebrating Katy’s slayage instead of coming for a new artist who is on his grind.
        Mad that your hairline’s been pushed more times’ than a stunt man’s luck?

  29. Naomi January 3, 2015

    Well done. Bey and Jay slayed everyone though only dumbasses can’t see why. 26 dates.

  30. MariahIsMusic1 January 3, 2015

    Lady Gaga Touring stats are a huge disappointment. From 200M to 85M that’s tragic imo

    • JOHNVIDAL January 3, 2015

      Well after all the backlash she´s doing pretty much the same numbers that the other pop stars are doing. That says a lot in her favour. She´s raw talent (as proved everytime she performs any type of song) and she´ll be fine.

  31. Career Ender January 3, 2015

    where is the monster tour?
    greatest tour in the entire music history

  32. Career Ender January 3, 2015

    the GREATEST DRAGGER to have EVER impacted TGJ is ROSIE
    look at her side effects in 2015
    legendary Rosie 2013 and ferever beyond

  33. MariahIsMusic1 January 3, 2015

    What went wrong with Lady Gaga? She had one of the biggest peak in this decade. TFM/FM/BTW she was the biggest Musician, Stats proved that. What went wrong? She’s talented, can sing, decent dancer. What went wrong??

    • Mark111 January 3, 2015

      Become big way too fast. She was only on album #2 and people were acting like she was the queen of pop. You want a career that grows, not one that blows. We seen this with Ashanti, Ciara, XXtina and more. Pressure is on for Adele. Taylor proved herself time and time again.

    • Tyler January 3, 2015

      She’s extra.

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

      Why are coming for anyone’s sales while Struggleriah is flopping? Let’s look at her in 2014:
      1. She got dumped and divorced.
      2. She gained weight uncontrollably that she had to resort to photoshopping herself more than usual.
      3. Her vocals manifested into a life of their own and they kept running away and back.
      Why oh why do you do this to yourself? You keep dragging yourself. Are you hurting yourself on purpose? Do you need a Doctor or a friend? Get help. 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁

  34. Tyler January 3, 2015

    I told all of you level five hating ass h*** that OTR was one of the most successful tours.

    100+ mill with just 21 dates #PureSlayage

  35. OVO Elijah January 3, 2015

    That Prismatic b**** better think again if she thinks she’s going to come for me. What she SHOULD be coming for is a guest pass to the Grammys since she’s never going to win one by invitation.
    And before you say Elijah doesn’t have one, check his stats boo, he wrote Climax and it won so boom!

    • Prismatic January 4, 2015

      Aww look at you all mad and stuff lol poke fun at the fact that Mother Hudson doesn’t have a career look at those that have won Grammys eg Gaga, Eve where are they now especially on the music charts. Katy’s career is on the rise is is slaying all her lessors left right and centre and slowly reaching Queen Bey’s Level she has multiplatinum selling albums and singles plagues to worry about , was named the top digital selling artist yes boo her music is SELLING cant say the same about your tacky ass fave she has millions of fans and followers all over the world oh and yeah a tour that has grossed over 100 Million so far and has the superbowl to headline next month so poke fun all you want at her not having a grammy but just remember the receipts lol your fave has a grammy that was won by someone else but does he have and riaa certified plagues? Is he selling anything? Can he even fill up a janitors closet? Lol you tried though

  36. OVO Elijah January 3, 2015

    I tried my damn hardest to be nice to everyone on here but this Prismatic b**** rubbed me the wrong way! Now it’s on.
    Where you wanna start b****? Her marriage to Russell? Her grammyless career? Her s*** stained vocals? Where do you want to start?!

    • Jason January 3, 2015

      Start with how Katy Perry been in the industry for about 8 years and still no Grammy to her name!! or the simple fact that she cant stand alone live.Always relying on back dancers, tacky art work to distract us from those stained vocals.

  37. fatusankoh January 3, 2015

    I love the Carters their is no one like them may God continue to bless protect them and their family for life long happy life ever lasting long happy married more success in all they do toether

  38. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

    @Career Struggles
    Can you feel my University-level drags? People who actually went to school get this good.
    Remember to stop by at Hillbrow. You need a Nigerian master. You’re gonna need the money. The rent is due. 😀 🙂 😀

  39. STAN(D)S FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

    You wish you were Rosie.
    And you said you ruled TGJ in 2014. Death 😀
    The reach is real. And please leave the poor grammar in 2014. At least start a sentence with a capital letter.

  40. What now January 3, 2015

    Their bosses pocket the lions share, while they run the stage and poison youth

  41. Jason January 3, 2015

    Bey is a champ! Been doing this for decades!!!!! Katy Perry (the singles artist) is grammyless so she automatically fails by default. Beyonce stay killing hos with 21 shows.seethe!!!!!!

  42. Rosie January 3, 2015

    Isn’t the Prismatic Tour on track to outgross the Born This Gay Ball? I thought the Little Cutters said she was on a decline. Not when Katy’s Australian leg alone grossed half of Fad’s total gross. Still, some of the kats are delusional if they think she’s better than Bey because of this.
    And kii at bitter f** Rima bringing up Lana for literally no reason yet again for the 30th time in the past three weeks. Yet it’s M.I.A. in every F*** post.

  43. coolness January 3, 2015

    Congrats to everyone! Esp the Carters, JT and even Gaga with her underperforming era. The old school legends are doing their thing too 🙂

  44. Slayty Perry (Super Bowl Queen) January 4, 2015

    Katy dominated Pop music for the second year in a row! She topped your favs on the charts, in album sales, in awards, in streaming, and now in touring. What happened to Katy not being a touring force? Weren’t a few stans saying she would never gross over 100 million for a tour? Yall can keep trying those dated 2012 drags but Katy will continue to scalp your favs without mercy. Get ready to see Teenage Dream, One of the Boys, and Prism resurrect after the Super Bowl to slay again 😉

    • LDN Chick January 4, 2015

      Whos faves exactly?

  45. LDN Chick January 4, 2015

    Beyonce and Jay Z with only 21 dates>>>>>

  46. Stanley January 5, 2015

    Lady Gaga’s Tour with is about to gross over $100 million… I didn’t see that coming lol. She might of been out the Lime light recently, but she making major moves.
