Madonna has managed to find the type of success that most musicians only dream of. Since the ‘80s, she’s stayed on top of her game and reinvented herself with the times. As a result, she’s just as loved today as she was back then.

Madge takes no risks with her security and has bodyguards follow her wherever she goes. When you’re someone as recognizable as she is, it’s not worth taking the chance. When all that is taken into account, Madonna likely shells out an impressive sum each year on personal protection. 

However, she’s worth over $600 million so when it comes to budgeting, Madonna has a little more wiggle room than some others. It’s thought that the star still earns a salary of around $54 million per year, which more than covers the cost of her security detail.
