Forbes To Madonna: Bye Felicia!



Forbes called Madonna OUT in their Celebrity 100 list preview.

The unapologetic ***** ranked fifth on their list last year with $125 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013 and strong marks in their metrics designed to quantify fame, but this year she’s nowhere to be found!

How? Blame touring (or lack thereof).

From Forbes:

“It used to be that bands toured to goose sales of their albums. But there’s no money left in music sales. Now bands release albums to get people into giant stadiums to drop hundreds of dollars on tickets and merchandise. During the time frame for last year’s list, the Material Girl had an incredibly successful tour that netted her more than she’s earned in any given year since we started the Celebrity 100 in 1999.”

Ouch! But don’t stress, cause Madge will inevitably tour her hush hush new album presumably out later this year and land right back on this precious list.

The full list will be released at 8 AM ET on Monday, June 30.
