Ozzy Osbourne tops annual list of highest-paid singers
In 2018 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (March 1) that Osbourne is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between February 2020 and February 2021, a nearly $60 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 has an estimated net worth of $275 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 Osbourne Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Birmingham Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderosbourne - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Ozzy) and a fashion line called “Ozzy Osbourne Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Ozzy fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
