The 25 Richest Musicians of 2012
17. Kenny Chesney ($44 million)
America loves country music, and Kenny Chesney is some kind of country music icon of the ages. He went on a massive tour of the US and Canada, and he hooked up with Corona and Hooters for some side money. The country-side is looking a little greener these days.
15. Katy Perry ($45 million)
Dis bitch dropped the husband and picked up a few more million on her way out. Dis bitch has her own movie and stuff. She's the only musician besides the late-great M.J. to have five No. 1 singles from the same album, and her tour brought in more than $60 million. That's dirty money.
