Taylor Swift tops Forbes list of highest-paid celebrities (Full List)

Taylor Swift, American singer, has been named the highest-paid celebrity by Forbes, having amassed a pretax income of $185 million over the past year.

The pop singer’s pay was reported to have grown by an estimated 131% after similarly topping Forbes’ celebrity 100 list of the highest-earning stars with $170 million in 2016.




With her ‘1989 World Tour’ seeing her topple other celebrities in 2016 and her successive ‘The Reputation Stadium Tour’ making her the highest-earning for 2019, Swift’s musical tours have indeed played a crucial role in her success.

According to Billboard Boxscore, Swift’s 2018 tour had surpassed her own ‘1989 World Tour’ as the highest-grossing in the U.S. and amassed a record-breaking $266.1 million domestically.

She can also be said to have ridden on the back of giants after Netflix acquired exclusive rights to her tour for a live concert special — a move which ultimately earned her an overall $345 million.

The tour spanned 36 cities, seven countries, and four continents, and saw her ride on the waves of endorsement deals that accrued from brands like Apple, AT&T and Diet Coke.

As if this wasn’t enough, Forbes estimated Swift’s record label switch for Universal Music Group’s Republic Records to be worth up to $200 million — a substantial addition to her coffers.

Other celebrities closely following her include Kylie Jenner, Kanye West, Lionel Messi, and Ed Sheran.
