Yeah, but they do a WORLD TOUR for the thirtieth anniversary of each album now. My sister has seen them twice in the last two years, two different tours!

This is one the rare "artists" I dislike with a passion, I find her voice so grating that I turn off the radio when she comes on. I think the song material is good and I would have loved someone else to have sung them. I just cant tolerate her vocals.................but that is just my opinion and lucky for us, the world is not just full of white flowers - I appreciate she has her dedicated fan base too.

Thank you Prince for every note you left behind 💜

Her vocals have a very distinct Katy affectation to them now. The same thing that sells a song is probably what drives you nuts. lol

How is Bon Jovi not on this list, some of this very debatable. Jovi has been on tour for the year and some so I doubt that this is 100% accurate. This is also why WHEN artists brag about STREAMING numbers I laugh, because the way that is paid out, an artist selling their own cd's at gig to a thousand people makes more than someone with 5 million streams of an album. ALSO alot of these $$$ are the so HIGH because of the artists contract, and also added in are endorsement deals too, and money they make off of making beats for others.

I don't think Bon Jovi is taking in as much money (price per ticket, or number of dates). They are probably at 31 or something though.

Not a very good singer. Weak and has pitch issues. I don't like her arrogance either. She can't sing, yet she's on singing shows as a judge judging others who CAN sing. Doesn't make sense, but what DOES these days? Not a whole LOT, sadly. Leave the judging 2 people who are REAL, gifted, talented singers who are not autotuned.

Hungry? Just look in the mirror and get fed up.
