Rich Rock Star Infographics

This Chart Provides a Look into the Lives of the Wealthiest Rockstars

— August 9, 2012 — Luxury
Bono, Jay-Z and Sir Paul McCartney are some of the biggest and richest artists in the world. Everybody knows their names, but do you know where their royalties lie?

Bono, from the group U2, is grossing in at $1 billion due to his investments in Facebook. Facebook is now valued at $100 billion this year and Bono’s invested 1% in the company. If you do the math, you'll see that this was a very wise move. While Bono is using his money for charities and stock, Madonna is dabbling in fashion, footwear, underwear and accessories. She has also written the fastest-selling children's picture book ever and owns a chain of gyms called Hard Candy Fitness.

Another diva who has famously gotten her name on the richest rock stars list is Mariah Carey. With contracts with Pepsi and Elizabeth Arden, she too owns her own line of shoes, jewelry and fragrances. Speaking of beverages, Sean "Diddy" Combs has a contract with spirits giant Diageo to promote Ciroc Vodka.

Whether it's through MTV, the radio, or your parents LP collection, we've heard these stars' names, and now we have a little insight into what they're worth. Whether you're Sir Elton John, Mick Jagger or Sting, riches come in abundance with hard work and a little endorsement with a personal business on the side.
