February 23rd, 2013 4:00pm EST
Even at 54, Madonnna has proven she's the queen of the music world. The pop star beat out Bruce Springsteen to be named the top money maker of the past year.
In the last 12 months, Madonna earned a staggering $34.58 million, largely due to her very successful "MDNA" world tour, which earned her an estimated $32 million alone.
Falling about $1 million behind her is rock icon Springsteen, who earned $33.44 million in the same period after hitting the road on the "Wrecking Ball" trek.
Filling out the top five slots are Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters ($21.16 million), Van Halen ($20.18 million) and country star Kenny Chesney ($19.15 million). The Billboard top 10 list also features Dave Matthews Band, Coldplay and Justin Bieber.
