Adele Tops Britain's Richest Young Musicians List
Adele has taken the top spot on Sunday Times' list of Britain's richest young musicians thanks to an estimated $48 million fortune.
Adele will turn 25 next month on May 13, but she has already won an Oscar for her James Bond theme Skyfall and has earned approximate $16 million in the last 12 months.
The sudden influx of cash over the last year has put her ahead of other British musicians such as Cheryl Cole ($22 million), Leona Lewis ($19 million), Katie Melua ($19 million), and Florence Welch ($14 million).
Despite those nice numbers, they pale in comparison to veterans of the industry. It may be unfair to put their numbers side-by-side with a name like Paul McCartney, who is worth an approximated $1 billion.
