You have to credit her with good business acumen and a strong marketing and PR team; how else would you explain Madonna’s thriving career even at the age of 54.
Where age works against gyrating moves and controversial wardrobe malfunctions, Madge is still eager to shock the world, much as she did on her World Tour last year.
The MDNA Tour grossed at about £200 million, and ricocheted the singer into the billionaire club, setting a record of sorts for female pop stars all over the world.
As millions of fans paid an average of £140 per ticket, and also bought a ton of the Material Girl’s merchandise, Madonna sat back pretty and counted her money, post a very colourful 88 city tour.
While the string of concerts are largely responsible for the moolah, Madge’s million dollar bank account, real estate investments, endorsements, album sales and business ventures made up the rest of the pie.
