Pop legend Madonna lost out to Beyonce for the title of richest female star in America. Only the rock band The Police earned more than Bey, according to Forbes magazine via Entertainment Wise: "The Police grabbed the top spot after pocketing a hefty $115 million over the past 12 months.

Beyonce is next up with her impressive dollar stack of $80 million, compared with Madonna's $40 million earnings."

Forbes probably combined Jay Z's earnings with Beys now that they are man and wife.

Meanwhile, the loons over on the Beyonce board are tearing their hair out at the news that Bey's 2 singles, "If I Were A Boy" and "Single Ladies" will be pushed back until October 14th.

Word is Beyonce wanted to "accommodate" former band mate Michelle Williams whose CD is dropping on October 7 - the day Bey's singles were set to go to radio.

They're saying Beyonce had a "change of heart." But we know better.

We know that Bey just wanted to avoid a repeat of the same severe criticism she received in 2006 when Matthew Knowles rushed her project out on the same day as ex-band member LeToya Luckett.
