Belinda Carlisle Net Worth
Belinda Carlisle net worth: Belinda Carlisle is a talented singer who has a net worth of $16 million. Belinda Carlisle has earned her net worth through the many hit songs, both as solo artist and as a member of the famed band The Go-Go's. Born Belinda Jo Carlisle on August 17, 1958, in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles, she has enjoyed a fully-blown fame twice, first with the all-female rock band, The Go-Go's, and then as a solo artist. Influenced by the all-present Hollywood burgeoning punk scene in the late 1970s, Carlisle and guitarist Jane Wiedlin formed The Go-Go's, a punk band which later joined Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, and Kathy Valentine. The group's sound evolved into a kitschy, '60s-flavored pop melody that became their trademark. Having signed to IRS records, The Go-Go's became the first self-contained female band to land #1 position on the record charts with the release of their multi-platinum debut album, Beauty and the Beat, in 1981. It included such hits as We Got the Beat and Our Lips are Sealed, which made the girls pop stars and fashion trendsetters. Of course, Carlisle got the lion's share of the attention as a front woman. They went on to release their next album, Vacation (1982), which hit Gold status, a success that their 1984 release Talk Show has never reached. Their third album marked a decline in popularity, despite the hit single Head Over Heels. It was in 1985, when The Go-Go's disbanded due to in-fights and drug addiction issues. But within a year, Carlisle embarked on a solo career, enjoying a #3 pop hit with 1986's Mad About You. She got back to the charts in 1987 and 1988, with Heaven is a Place on Earth and I Get Weak, respectively. After the release of Go-Gos' CD retrospective, Carlisle went on a brief reunion tour with the band in 1994. Soon, she moved to Europe where she hit the UK charts with Adult Contemporary offerings like A Woman and Man and Voila. In addition to her work as a solo artist and performing with her former band, the pop-rock veteran made several appearances on TV shows like Celebrity Duets (Fox, 2006), MTV's talent contest Rock the Cradle (MTV, 2008) and the eighth season of Dancing with the Stars.
