Dr Dre was the highest paid musician of 2014 and here is how you do it.
Step 1: Start a company that sells high-end headphones.
Step 2: Take time away from your hip-hop career to concentrate on bringing your company to as high of a standard as Apple.
Step 3: Sell said company to Apple for $3 Billion.
That’s how you set the record for the most made by a musician in one year.ever.
Dr. Dre pulled it off in 2014 when he made a total of $620 million after the sale of his Beats by Dre to Apple. The artist and businessman leads this year’s Forbes list of the Highest Paid Musicians.
In comparison, Madonna led the list last year with a paltry $125 million and she was well ahead of Lady Gaga who took in $80 million.
