How much is Katy Perry worth?

How much is Katy Perry worth? Is there any realistic way to calculate how much she got paid for what she produced? (Not the exact amount, but presumably we ought to be able to get the order of magnitude right.)

It doesn't have to be Katy Perry, but for example: she has had a number of top hits recently. In 2011, it seemed like every time I walked into a casino, etc., or turned on the radio, I heard one of her songs. Doesn't she get paid some fractional amount every time one of her songs is played in certain venues? How much did she get paid for the original contract, for her appearances in videos, for her concerts, etc.? I'm curious -- does anybody know anything about how the industry standard works? Presumably we ought to be able to produce an estimate that is good enough for government work.
