Nikki Sixx tops annual list of highest-paid musicians
In 2017 it looked like the musician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (July 20) that Sixx is the highest-paid musician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between June 2018 and June 2019, a nearly $20 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 musician-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Sixx Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “San Jose Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondersixx - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Nikki) and a fashion line called “Nikki Sixx Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Nikki fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
