Pop star Madonna has been awarded a Guinness World Record for being the highest paid female singer.
Madonna performed at Wembley during her Confessions tour
The star, famous for constantly re-inventing her image, knocked singer Britney Spears from the top spot she had held since 2001.
It is thought Madonna made an estimated $50m (£26.7m) in 2004.
Billboard magazine recently reported the singer broke another record for having the highest earning tour for a female performer.
Other acts who will also feature in the 2007 Guinness World of Records book include James Blunt and the Arctic Monkeys.
Blunt's Back to Bedlam scooped the record for the most albums sold in a year in the UK with 2.36m copies in 2005.
The Arctic Monkeys have won their place in the record book for the fastest selling UK debut album with Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, which sold 363,735 copies in its first week and 113,000 on its first day.
Madonna's bank account is not the only one to have broken records.
Simon Cowell, who is currently taking part in X Factor, is the highest paid TV talent show judge with earnings of £18m.
Jamie Oliver, who last year led a national campaign to improve school dinners, is the highest paid TV chef with an estimated annual income of £4.8m.
