If you do just a LITTLE bit of research you will find that Michael Jackson is the highest paid artist of all time (since the beginning of recorded history). In 1987 he was paid $100 million in one year, which was a record of its own. His BAD, Dangerous and HIStory tours have grossed him over $300 million. Plus, he owns the rights to his own music plus that of The Beatles (valued at between $500 million and $1 billion) and he owns the rights of rapper Eminem's earlier music and some of 50 cent's music as well as Sly and the Family Stone, Shakira and a host of others. Just on his music alone he makes $20 million a year, add in the Beatles and the rest of the ppl he owns we're talkin in the hundreds of millions.
