Madonna has been named the top-earning celebrity of 2013.

Editors at Forbes magazine estimate the pop superstar earned the majority of her $125 million fortune, between June 2012 and June 2013, from her MDNA tour, strong merchandise sales, a clothing line, fragrance and investments in companies like Vita Coco.

The earnings are the most the Material Girl has ever made in one year.

Director Steven Spielberg comes in second with $100 million (GBP66.6 million) in earnings, while Simon Cowell, author E.L. James and Howard Stern round out the top five.

Others included on the rich list are author James Patterson, TV personality Glenn Beck, moviemaker Michael Bay, Hollywood mogul Jerry Bruckheimer and Lady Gaga. (KG/WNWCFB/KL)
