      Yes, this is a Billboard list (not a Forbes one), its only music related (sales, royalties, touring).

          Yes, the vast majority of the list generated most of the money from tickets sales. The article also says Britney earned over $700K in royalties and sold over 2,2million tracks in 2014.

          The list reflects how powerful Britney is, many haters say she's over yet their faves are not in the list, also the fact that her last album didn't have much sales has nothing to do with her power as an artist and star in the business.

          If we analyze and take Beyonce as an analytic comparison / example who had a huge year, was like one of the top females of the year and is contemporary with Brit, you'll see Beyonce ranked at #12 with $19m and Britney ranked at #18 with $13m, as you can see the difference is not even that remarkable, then you realize that in 2014 Beyonce did two massive tours (the completation of 25 dates of her "Mrs Carter world tour" and the "On the run" Stadium tour with Jay-Z), she released 7 new singles, a DVD and Re-released her top selling album "Beyoncé", then we have Britney, what did she do in 2014?, the answer: nothing, just some Vegas shows. Thats when you understand how big Britney is but mostly how expensive her name is, she can generate a lot with less releases, less work, more simple things and out of the spotlight because she has the enough power in the industry to do that.

          She still generates millions of dollars and is valuable, profitable and worthy as an artist, from the day she took the scene in 1998 to the present she has constantly been among the top earner musicians nearly every year.

                                                  Why do people post adjusted tour fgures? Just stick with the real time tour figures IMO.

                                                    What are you talking about?, her new song "Pretty Girls" is over 22m airplay in 5 days and "Infinity" hasn't even crossed 3M in 2 weeks.

                                                          Yep, she wasn't supported by Radio and the media during that era (for obvious reasons), the first 2 singles still managed to do good despite the airplay tho, "Gimme More" reachted the top 3 on the Hot 100 and "Piece of me" reached the top 20 peaking at #18 and it didn't reach the top 10 because the low airplay prevented it to do it.

                                                          Then by the time Spears released "Femme Fatale" many were saying that was her lowest era at that time, but I disagree, I think despite the fact "Blackout" moved a bit more albums the overall "Femme Fatale" era was bigger than it, just look at the stats between the two and it couldn't be more obvious.

                                                            It pains me that Blackout still hasn't crossed the 300,000 mark in the UK; it was last at 275,000 when Circus was released (I think). I'm sure it's eligible for Platinum based on shipments alone but the new system would have certified it automatically if it had crossed it in sales.
                                                            we will rise to meet the challenge every time

                                                              The new system (despite being automatic) is not 100% perfect either, I know several cases of albums that haven't been updated yet despite having the enough sales, "Hard Candy" by Madonna being one particular example which is over 300K units but the system still shows it as a Gold record. They still have a some work to do with some albums.
