Were you any good at guessing games?
Without doing any research or a Google search, who automatically springs to mind when it comes to the richest pop star on the planet?
A Beatle? The Queen of Pop? The Boss? The King (both dead whichever you deem king). Simon Cowell? Actually Simon's not a pop star...scrap that.
