The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

Who is the top-earning woman in the music industry this year?



No, it's not Taylor Swift. It's Britney, b----.



Britney Spears took in an estimated $58 million in 2012, Forbes reports. Spears' latest album, Femme Fatale, was certified platinum this last year and she also took in millions from her subsequent tour and her fragrance deal with Elizabeth Arden. And who can forget the $15 million Spears, 31, reportedly made for joining The X Factor judges table?



Who earns what: TV's highest-paid stars



Swift, 22, came in a close second with a haul of $57 million. In addition to grossing more than $1 million per night on the road, Swift earned a pretty penny from her Sony and CoverGirl endorsements. The country-pop rocker had the highest album debut of the year when Red sold 1.2 million copies in its first week.



Rihanna ranked third with $53 million, followed by Lady Gaga at No. 4 with $52 million. Katy Perry rounded out the top 5 with $45 million.
