Beauty Icon: Sade

In 2010, she released Soldier of Love. While touring on it last year, she grossed $16.4 million from combined album and ticket sales, just behind totals amassed by Lil Wayne, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and U2. "I do want to get on the stage and sing the songs," she told The New York Times. "But then I just want to disappear again."
