JUSTIN BIEBER is the highest paid young performer in the world this year (10), earning a staggering $300,000 (£200,000) for every concert he performs.
A new rich list reveals the 16-year-old Canadian commands twice as much money as rap sensation Drake, three times as much as music rival Selena Gomez and quadruple the paycheck of American Idol star Jordin Sparks.
But Bieber has some way to go before he tops the touring income of music heavyweights like Rascal Flatts, Kiss and Keith Urban - who top the rich list of all artists touring in 2010.
Documents obtained by TheSmokingGun.com reveal the country trio earns $702,500 (£468,300) per concert, followed by glam rock veterans Kiss with $500,000 (£333,300) and Nicole Kidman’s husband Urban with $487,500 (£325,000).
Other notable entries include Sheryl Crowe, earning $146,500 (£97,670), Bret Michaels with $64,000 (£42,600) and American Idol champ Kris Allen with $12,500 (£8,300).
