Brigitte Fontaine tops annual list of highest-paid singers

In 2018 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (February 26) that Fontaine is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between January 2020 and January 2021, a nearly $30 million lead over her 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 French singer-songwriter-author has an estimated net worth of $185 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Fontaine Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Morlaix Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderfontaine - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Brigitte) and a fashion line called “Brigitte Fontaine Seduction”.

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