Forbes magazine released it's annual "Music's Top Earning Women" list today and, surprisingly, Britney Spears raked in the most money in 2012.

Spears, who's now 31 years-old, earned a whopping $58 million thanks in large part to her Femme Fatale record and tour and some endorsement stuff she did.  Taylor Swift, 22, music's It Girl of the moment, pulled in a healthy $57 million -- she has her triple platinum CD Red to thank for that enormous sum.
