McCartney also recently tied for eighth with Taylor Swift in Forbes' list of the highest paid musicians in 2012, with both performers bringing in $57 million. Justin Bieber placed 10th on that list, followed by McCartney and Swift, then Britney Spears ($58 million), Bon Jovi ($60 million), Take That ($69 million), U2 ($78 million), Elton John ($80 million), Roger Waters ($88 million) and Dr. Dre, who took the top spot with a whopping $110 million.
