Are you feeling a little sad today since you didn’t win the jackpot last night?  I know, I know … I am feeling the same as you.  Just to add salt to the wound, I thought I would share with you some of the artists that made a list of the World’s Highest-Paid Musicians.

The list is from forbes.com.  The estimates are based on total earnings from May of last year up through this past May.

1. Dr. Dre – $110 million

2. Roger Waters – $88 million

3. Elton John – $80 million

4. U2 – $78 million

7. Britney Spears – $58 million

12. Rihanna – $53 million

13. Lady Gaga – $52 million

18. Beyonce – $40 million

19. Red Hot Chili Peppers – $39 million

20. Jay-Z – $38 million

21. Coldplay – $37 million

25. Sade – $33 million

Now I am really depressed after seeing all those people making millions of dollars in one year.  SIGH!
