Britney Spears has made $60 million+ in the past year

Somehow that chick in the picture above -- who didn't technically sing at all on her worldwide tour last year -- had the 5th highest grossing tour of the past year. Welcome Apocalypse. From Forbes:
No. 5: Britney Spears

$64 million

Not long ago, most of the entertainment world had written Britney Spears off as a celebrity flameout. But over the last year Spears logged the fifth highest-grossing tour in the world, bringing in $130 million in gross box office receipts by playing 98 dates. High-profile endorsement deals with Elizabeth Arden and Candies' prove that the public expects Spears to stay in the spotlight for good.
Who the hell is paying to see Britney Spears in concert? The only people that should be buying tickets to a Britney show are pre-teens and the registered sex offenders in loose sweatpants standing next to them. Besides, if people want to see an overweight singer whose only real talent used to be her body, they don't need to spend big bucks to go to a Britney Spears concert. They can pay $12.95 at Hometown Buffet and stand next to Jessica Simpson.
