‘Me!’ Singer Taylor Swift Received This Amazing Recognition from Forbes Again
Here’s some good news for Taylor Swift, who’s been deep in drama since her battle with music producer Scooter Braun broke out. For the second time around, Forbes declared the 29-year-old pop star as the highest-paid celebrity of the year.
Read on to find out how much her eye-popping earnings totaled to.
The singer first made the list as number one back in 2016 when she raked in $170 million. Now she returns to the top bringing in a whopping $185 million this time around. In comparison, she reportedly made around $100 million less than that the year prior. With her second stint, she also became the first-ever female musician to top the Forbes list twice.
According to the publication, Swift benefited much from the profits of her highly successful Reputation tour which just so happens to be the current highest-grossing tour in the United States. The lucrative tour made $266.1 million in domestic sales and a total global earning of $345.7 million.
Her earnings definitely reflect on her current net worth of $360 million. According to Forbes, a good part of her wealth is thanks to her earnings from the Reputation album and merch, too. Her last album sold 1.2 million copies in the United States just during its first week alone. It eventually became the only album in the country to sell over two million copies in the last two years.
Sharing the Ranks
Swift shared the upper ranks with other very familiar celebrity names like rapper Kanye West, who took the third spot with earnings amounting to $150 million. It can be remembered that Swift and West have previously made the news because of controversies between them.
Meanwhile, West’s sister-in-law Kylie Jenner came in second to the pop singer. The young billionaire reportedly earned $170 million. It’s worth noting that Jenner slid down one spot from her previous rank on top last year. Also, in the top five is English singer Ed Sheeran, a noted friend and musical collaborator of Swift’s, with an estimated $110 million.
Going further down the list are four athletes who made the top 10. Soccer stars Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar got the fourth, sixth and seventh spots respectively. Also making the list is Mexican boxer Canelo Álvarez at the tenth spot.
With the release of a new album, Swift might just top the list a third time if she’s lucky. She’s already debuted a single ‘Me!’ from her seventh album along with its music video. The track and video also feature Panic at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie.
However, her latest release coincides with another controversy in her career as she accuses Braun of bullying her while she was still with her previous record label. And now, the singer is speaking up after the producer got control over her past music.
