Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden 6:30am - 10am
Less isn't always more, in fact these nice girls of pop are proving that skimpy outfits and raunchy antics aren't needed to maintain a successful career in music. The likes of Taylor Swift and Adele are outselling sex pots Rihanna and Miley whilst still keeping their dignity in tact!
Country pop singer Taylor Swift embraces her squeaky clean image, and despite her high profile relationships with industry bad boys such as Harry Styles and John Mayer it has only helped make her write more relatable records which have helped her to cash in. Her last album 1989 sold over £4.1 million records whilst her 'Red' world Tour grossed over £98.6 million! Let's not forget her army Twitter followers which stands at over 50 million. WOW!
A net worth of 78 million isn't anything to snarl at, but Rihanna's bank account seems comparatively low next to Taylor Swift's and shows that there is something to said for keeping your clothes on. Despite this, the Bajan popstar's raunchy image helped her album to shift 1.13 million copies of her last album 'Unapologetic', not to mention her top selling 'Diamonds' world tour which grossed over £94.4million.
Known for her happy go lucky hits and quirky image, Katy Perry has a comparatively larger net worth than the likes of Rihanna which could be down to approachable image. The 'Teenage Dream' singer's 'The California Dreams Tour', grossed over £40million whilst her album 'Prism' sold over 1.5 million copies.
Miley Cyrus' shocking antics, such as twerking at the MTV Video Music Awards, may have earned her notoriety but it hasn't seen her match the success of some of her good girl counterparts. Nonetheless, the former Disney star's raunchy displays helped her shift 1.5 million copies of her 'Bangerz' album, whilst her controversial video for 'Wrecking Ball' saw her break VEVO's record for the most viewed video in 24 hours.
Singing powerhouse Adele is not a forced to be reckoned with. The demure soul singer has had enviable success with her second studio album '21' which sold over 7 million in U.S sales earning her a whopping 7 Grammy Awards including Album of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for 'Someone Like You'.
It seems Nick Minaj's sex appeal has only helped so much, as her last musical effort 'The Pink Friday Project' only sold a mere 370,000 copies whilst her 'Pink Friday Tour' pulled in £3.5 million. However the 'Super Bass' hit-maker has a loyal social media fan base, with Twitter army of 18.7 million and over 14 million fans on Instagram.
