Jane Birkin 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 Monday (August 10) that Birkin is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between July 2019 and July 2020, a nearly $60 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 British singer-actress has an estimated net worth of $275 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 Birkin Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbirkin - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jane) and a fashion line called “Jane Birkin Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Jane fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
