That was pretty obvious, right? Bono – the guy who is all about feeding Africa, but also seems to spend $7 mill on blue-lensed spectacles yearly – is crazy rich. Thanks, in part, to purchasing a chunk of Facebook a few years back.
The rest of the ten richest musicians are kind of predictable too, but we were surprised to see the order in which they go.
So here’s the list. Prepare to feel a little sick and a little envious at the same time. (By “a little” we mean “extremely”.)
Bono: $1 billion
Sir Paul McCartney: $800 million
Madonna: $650 million
Mariah Carey: $500 million
Sean “Diddy” Combs: $500 million
Jay-Z: $450 million
Sir Elton John: $309 million
Mick Jagger: $300 million
Sting: $284 million
Keith Richards: $276 million
So let’s all write Keith Richards a letter of commiseration for being so, so poor.
