The top entertainer in 2018 wasTaylor Swift. She got $266.1 million in 2018. Michael Jackson, deceased since 2009, earned $400 million in 2018, which is much more than Swift earned in the same year. Michael was so very, very original that it’s difficult to imagine anyone coming close to his achievements. Many entertainers are unique. Sinatra, Presley, Holiday,…. and Jackson was perhaps the most unique with the many ways he used his voice. No one comes close.
