Madonna was born in Bay City, Michigan. In 1977, she moved to New York City hoping to pursue a career in dance but wound up releasing her first music album in 1983. She had quite a few number one billboard hits throughout her career including Like a Virgin, Papa Don’t Preach, Like a Prayer, Vogue, Into the Groove, Frozen, Hung Up, Music and Four Minutes and more. Madonna has always been a bit controversial as many parents did not appreciate the lyrics to her songs nor the way that she dressed and danced on stage in concert. To this day, she is one of the most controversial performers of the past few decades.

Acting had always been one of Madonna’s callings in life. She acted in Desperately Seeking Susan for which she received positive accolades. Madonna’s role as Evita was memorable and she received the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. She also has written children’s books and has a fashion design business. Madonna is the best selling woman rock artist in the 20th century. Her net worth is estimated to be approximately 650 million dollars! You must keep in mind that Madonna continues to write music and go on tour, so her income is consistently rising. She also receives income from record sales, book sales and her other business ventures.

So, how much is 650 million dollars really?

If Madonna was feeling really generous, she might want to help her fellow Americans. She could afford to give all of the 314,832,000 citizens of the United States $2.06. When you think about it, this equates to one small order of McDonald’s French fries, including tax. Now, should Madonna want to really get a bang for her buck, she could actually help every person in South Africa. With Madonna’s wealth, she could purchase a pair of oxen, a pair of cattle, one goat, one sheep and a flock of chickens for each of the 51,770,000 people in South Africa. A pair of oxen cost $50. A pair of cattle cost $40. The goat and sheep are $15 each. A flock of chickens costs $10. After buying all of that livestock for each person, Madonna would still be able to give the South African citizens $10.55 each in cash! What a major difference she could make in the world!

    Madonna was paid over 1 BILLION in 2012 for her Las Vegas Residency. She has surpassed Oprah Winfrey (FORBES most wealthy woman 2011) and is now considered the most wealthy woman in North America. 1 Billion is WELL over 650 Million, when in actuality it is more to the tune of nearly 2 Billion! :o)
