Bob Mould tops annual list of highest-paid singers
In 2020 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (August 16) that Mould is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between July 2021 and July 2022, a nearly $50 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 American singer-songwriter-guitarist has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Mould Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Malone Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermould - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Bob) and a fashion line called “Bob Mould Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Bob fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
