Britney is swimming in the dough, topping Forbes' Top-Earning Women in Music 2012 list.

Thanks to her wildly successful Femme Fatale album and tour and fragrance line with Elizabeth Arden, Brit earned $58 million.

“I think people love the comeback story—Britney never really finished her run as a superstar,” says marketing guru Steve Stoute, author of The Tanning of America. Adds music attorney Lori Landew, who helped sign Spears to her first record deal as a teenager: “Britney has an electricity that connects with audiences on screen and off, and it is that intangible quality that always seems to leave her fans, old and new, breathless.”

Trailing after Britney's #1 spot in music comes Taylor Swift with $57 million, Rihanna with $53 million and Katy Perry with $45 million.

Britney placed #2 on Forbes' Highest Paid Women in Hollywood list several weeks back, only losing to Oprah.

Forbes ranked her the highest earning female musician in 2011 ... and now she's the highest earning for 2012 as well


Singer Britney Spears has been listed as the highest earning female musician in 2012.

Though she didn't release any album this year, Spears managed to earn an estimated $58 million, reports Forbes magazine. Spears' last album was Femme Fatale, released in 2011 after she conducted a tour for its promotion. She signed as a judge of US reality show The X Factor for a fee of $15 million.

Other singers who made it to the list include Rihanna, with an estimated worth of $53 million, Lady Gaga with $53 million, followed by Katy Perry with $45 million.
