Big in 2013 for… The MDNA Tour, stirring up controversy
Mired in backlash over taking the sexy stuff too far, ‘93 was a tough one for Madonna. The years since have been far more kind. Her ‘98 release Ray of Light won a bunch of Grammys, and she since surpassed Elvis’ Top 10 record (38) and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On the road, she remains a record-setter — her Sticky & Sweet Tour is the highest grossing ever by a solo artist and her controversial MDNA Tour was 2012’s top-earner. —John Mitchell
