Beyoncé's Money Moves Put Her Atop Taylor Swift, Rihanna & Every Female Music Icon In '17
Grammy-winning singer Beyoncé just doesn't know how to lose in 2017. After welcoming twins and slaying in every public appearance she makes, Queen Bey has officially earned the title of highest-paid woman in music this year.
According to financial publication Forbes, Queen Bey's earned $105 million easily put her above competition like Adele and Taylor Swift.
Lemonade was a hit with both critics and fans, giving Beyoncé her sixth solo No. 1. The ensuing Formation World Tour, much of it falling into our list's scoring period, grossed a quarter of a billion dollars. Then she took time off as she and husband Jay-Z welcomed twins Rumi and Sir this summer. Adele finished second, earning $69 million, boosted by seven-figure nightly grosses on her first proper tour since 2011. (Forbes)

Over the weekend, Bey treated fans to shots of herself from tennis icon Serena Williams' recent wedding.
Recent reports claimed Bey had a friendly encounter with reality TV star Kim Kardashian at the wedding.
Sources tell us Kim and Beyonce were actually cordial Thursday night at Serena Williams' wedding ... and they even exchanged hellos in the VIP section set up to avoid paps lingering outside. While Jay and Kanye once had a super close relationship ... the same can't be said about Kim and Bey. They're not friends - in fact we're told Bey never really liked Kim, although Kim never harbored a grudge. (TMZ)
