Sir Elton John = World's Highest Paid Male Pop Star

SIR Elton John has been named the world's top-paid male pop star — after earning £63million ($100m) in the past year.

The music legend, 64, made more than even Simon Cowell thanks to a £130million world tour.

But the globe's biggest-earning male star was US film and TV mogul Tyler Perry with £82million, according to money mag Forbes.

He beat movie makers Jerry Bruckheimer (£71million) and Steven Spielberg (£67million).

Elton was fourth with Simon one behind (£57million).

Tiger Woods, at No10 on the list, was best-paid sports ace with £47million.
