Forbes names Beyoncé music's highest-earning woman

NEW YORK (AP) - Forbes has crowned Beyoncé as the highest paid woman in music.

Forbes magazine says the singer earned $105 million over a yearlong period stretching from June 2016 to June of this year. Beyoncé's earnings were boosted by her "Formation" world tour last year, which Forbes says grossed $250 million.
    
Runner-up Adele also enjoyed a successful year on the road. Her tour helped contribute to $69 million in earnings.
    
Taylor Swift, Celine Dion and Jennifer Lopez complete the top five highest female earners in the business.
    
Dolly Parton is a surprising sixth. Forbes says the 71-year-old brought in $37 million with the help of 63 shows during the yearlong period.
