Madonna Net Worth $800 Million
Madonna was educated at Rochester Adams High School, and then attended University of Michigan on a dance scholarship, and having convinced her father, started ballet lessons.Madonna was performing as a backup singer and dancer on Patrick Hernandez’s world tour before she was discovered by the record producer Mark Kamins and signed to Sire Records in 1982. She released her debut self-titled album and two hit singles ‘Everybody’ and ‘Burning Up’ under their label the following year, both of which peaked at #3 on the Billboard chart. With such successful beginnings Madonna started to become more prominent in the music industry, and her net worth rose commensurately.
Ranked as the Best-Selling Female Rock Artist of the 20th century, Madonna rose to fame with such hits as “Like A Virgin” that topped the charts for six weeks, “Hollywood” that she performed during the MTV Music Awards with Britney Spears, Missy Elliott and Christina Aguilera, as well as “4 Minutes” with Justin Timberlake. Throughout her singing career, Madonna has released twelve studio albums, and is ranked as one of the best-selling artists in the United States with 64 million of certified albums sold worldwide. The albums have been supported by nine world tours, the most recent being “The MDNA Tour” that grossed over $305 million worldwide. She is appreciated as being both dynamic and giving good value for money on stage, including recently at the age of 56.
In addition to her highly profitable and commercially successful singing career, Madonna has ventured into acting as well, and has appeared in 26 feature films, three stage plays and a number of commercials. Some of Madonna’s more notable appearances include “Dick Tracy” with Warren Beatty, “Dangerous Game” with James Russo, “Die Another Day” with Pierce Brosnan and Halle Berry, and “Who’s That Girl” with Griffin Dunne. However, compared with her incredible success in the music industry, her reviews from acting have generally been underwhelming.
In 1992, she launched a music publishing company “Webo Girl Publishing”, as well as an entertainment company “Maverick”. Madonna also owns an English production company “Semtex Girls”, a series of fitness centres “Hard Candy Fitness” and a fashion brand called “Truth or Dare by Madonna” among many others. Among the many awards that Madonna has received during her career, some of the more notable are Billboard Awards, Golden Globe Awards, MTV Awards and Grammy Awards. Madonna has also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is one of the members of UK Music Hall of Fame.
Crowned as one of the wealthiest people in the music industry, Madonna continues to stay relevant, which is proven by her high record sales, worldwide tour attendances and the continued rise in her net worth.
