Nothing like a Forbes list to remind everyone which musician really reigns supreme.

The money-centric mag released their tabulations on the highest earning entertainers of the fiscal June 2012 through June 2013 year. Any guesses on who’s the richest of them all?

Madonna finds herself at the top of the list thanks to the MDNA World Tour, which pulled in a colossal $125 million.

That completely trumps the penultimate winner, Lady Gaga, who arrived with $80 million, followed by veteran rockers Bon Jovi with $79 million and country star Toby Keith, who raked in $65 million.

Here are the top 10:

1.    Madonna – $125 million

2.    Lady Gaga – $80 million

3.    Bon Jovi – $79 million

4.    Toby Keith – $65 million

5.    Coldplay – $64 million

6.    Justin Bieber – $58 million

7.    Taylor Swift – $55 million

8.    Elton John – $54 million
