Forbes magazine has unveiled its ranking of music artists who have won the most money in 2014. With harvested EUR 500 million, Dr Dre buried numerous other artists and became the first musician of all time to have even paid!

The war of big money! Daily, maybe a little less of Dr Dre referred to as Justin Bieber, One Direction, Taylor Swift and Beyonce, and yet, the producer, rapper, businessman (among others) supersedes them by far when it comes out the machine to count the tickets by the end of 2014! According to Forbes magazine, he arrives at the top of the ranking of the best-paid of the year and very very far away musicians!

Salary of the year for Dr Dre? EUR 500 million! Not only he is the better paid, but it beats all the records registered up to now, according to Forbes! He thus left behind Beyoncé and its 93 million euros, as well as artists such as The Eagles (80 million), Bon Jovi (66 million), Bruce Springsteen ($ 65 million).

Later in the ranking, younger artists are pale! Compared to Dr. Dre, Justin Bieber has won that 64 million euros and the One Direction 60 million! What actually still artists under 30 rich years and only appear in the Top10. Followed by girls: Taylor Swift (51 million), Katy Perry (32 million), Miley Cyrus (29 million) and Lady Gaga ($ 26 million)!

So, what is the secret of Dr Dre? He has a genius idea by creating his brand of headphones Beats, but above all by the reselling to Apple! The transaction would thus cost the Apple mark 2.2 billion euros! In passing, she bumped the personal fortune of the rapper. Beautiful operation!

It is thus in phase to supplant Madonna, having recently access to the rank of the richest artist in the world, according to the Wealth-X site, with a fortune estimated at 645 million dollars over the past 30 years. The fortune of Dr Dre could now rise to between 700 and 800 million dollars!
