After seeing the countdown of the world's biggest earning music artists of 2011 we have two pressing questions.
No.1: What sort of world do we live in where Lil' Wayne is the fifth biggest earner in music?
No.2: WHEN WILL PEOPLE STOP LISTENING TO SADE?
The countdown is an unusual mix of artists - from leading pop divas to legendary rockers to a few too many US country and western artists for our liking, with Britney Spears rubbing shoulders with the likes of U2, Bon Jovi, Kenny Chesney and Paul McCartney. It's an interesting countdown, that's for sure.
