Forbes says that Elvis Presley earned 55 million dollars in 2012

Here’s the breakdown according to the magazine Forbes:

1) Michael Jackson, $160  million
2) Elvis, $55 million
3) Charles Schulz, $37 million
4) Liz  Taylor, $25 million
5) Bob Marley, $18 million

MJ was #2 last year,  but two successful Jacko-inspired Cirque du Soleil shows have shot the King of  Pop back to the top.

Besides Liz Taylor’s drop, the rest of the list  contains the usual suspects … Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Bruce Lee … but  there is one notable new name — Mexican singer Jenni Rivera, who died in a  plane crash back in 2012.
