Pia Zadora 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 (May 17) that Zadora is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between April 2020 and April 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 American singer-actress 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 Zadora Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Hoboken Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderzadora - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Pia) and a fashion line called “Pia Zadora Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Pia fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
