Morrissey tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2014 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (February 25) that Morrissey is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between January 2016 and January 2017, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The British singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Morrissey Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Davyhulme Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermorrissey - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Morrissey) and a fashion line called “Morrissey Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Morrissey fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
