With an incredible $110 million in pretax earnings, Dr. Dre has topped the list of 2012's highest-paid musicians.

Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters ranks second with $88 million, the majority coming from his recent The Wall Live tour.

Elton John claims the third spot with $80 million and Brit bands U2 and Take That round off the top five.

Britney and Taylor Swift are the only two women to grace the top 10, and baby Bieber only managed to make joint tenth, though that's not bad for an eighteen year-old.

Ah, to be a pop star.
