Michael Jackson Tops Forbes’ New List Top Earning Dead Celebrities

Michael Jackson tops “Forbes'” newly compiled list of the Top-Earning Dead Celebrities. But the article suggests that his family owes a big thank you to “Cirque du Soleil”. The production company that blends music, acrobatics and special effects currently has two Jackson-based productions. “Immortal” — nominated earlier this week for a “Billboard Touring Award” — and “One”, currently a sell-out at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas. Jackson’s revenue stream also include his own hits as well as his half-ownership of music publishing giant Sony/ATV, which controls songs by The Beatles and contemporary stars Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga.
