Adele on top money makers list

Adele has made it into the top ten of Billboard's Money Makers list.

The Grammy-winning British star cancelled most of her US tour due to issues with her vocal cords but her album 21 sold more than five million copies in 2011, helping the 23-year-old singer-songwriter enter the list at number ten.

Including sales from this year, 21 has sold nearly eight million copies.

Taylor Swift was named Billboard's number one money maker of 2011.

The 22-year-old country star reportedly earned more than 35 million dollars in 2011, beating U2 to the top spot, with the Irish rock superstars earning 32 million dollars.

Kenny Chesney, Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne rounded out the top five.

Artists' rankings were based on US income sources from tours, albums sales and publishing royalties. Billboard said in a press release that it didn't factor in "sponsorships, merchandise sales or synchronisation deals".
