It's no wonder that Madonna can go around flashing her expensive grill – the singer made more money in 2012 than any other celebrity. According to the Forbes list of the highest paid celebrities in 2012, Madge raked in $125m last year alone. Gulp! Forbes reporter Dorothy Pomenrantz commented on the story, saying: "Madonna's success, at age 55, just goes to show the incredible power of a successful music career." The singer made most of her money through the tour that she launched to go alongside her new album. Her MDNA tour grossed an eye-watering $305 million and also won her the Top Touring Award at the Billboard Music AwardsThe annual list, produced by Forbes, is compiled using input from agents, managers and producers, but the figures don't reflect tax deductions, agent fees or "the other expenses of being a celebrity". Hmm, we wonder what those expenses could be – buying mouth grills, perhaps?Click on the above picture to see who else made the rich list this year...
