A new Forbes feature on Megan concludes with a paragraph about what she has on the horizon, which mentions a new album and tour set for 2023. It also makes note of the first-deal look Meg signed with Netflix in 2011 and a forthcoming “comedy based on her childhood.” There’s also mention of the upcoming Time Studios documentary about her, for which Meg was apparently paid $4 million.
Forbes estimates that in 2022, Megan earned about $13 million “from a combination of royalties, ticket sales, endorsements, and merch.” Of her work ethic, Meg said, “I can’t slow down right now. I’ll take a break when I’m dead. I’m trying to really build something. When I start sitting, I feel like I’m not doing enough or I’m giving somebody else the opportunity to pass me.”
