Michael Jackson despite not being alive he continues to generate income. The proof: Forbes magazine has just given him for a second year in a row, first place in its list of richest dead celebrities. The late King of Pop has indeed generated revenues of $ 170 million in the last year, against $ 275 million during the previous year.

Elvis Presley ranked Number Two on the list, and he made a little less than a third — $55 million — than Jackson earned. In fact, if you add up the amount of money the other fourteen celebrities on the Forbes list made, it’s still less than Jackson.
