Taylor Swift is Forbes' highest-paid celeb

12 July 2019 | Art and Entertainment

Taylor Swift has topped Forbes magazine's list of the World's Highest-Paid Celebrities.

The 'ME!' hit-maker raked in an impressive US$185 million, followed closely behind by Kylie Jenner with US$170 million and Kanye West with US$150 million.

Taylor's income mainly comes from touring, which comes as no surprise as her Reputation Stadium Tour was named the highest-grossing United States tour ever whilst 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Kylie's success is linked to her cosmetics business and her popular social media following.

Soccer star Lionel Messi came in fourth place with US$127 million whilst Ed Sheeran completes the top five with US$110 million

The Eagles features in the top 10, whilst radio and television personality Howard Stern, 'Harry Potter' author J.K. Rowling, and actor Dwayne Johnson all make the top 15.

Kim Kardashian West is at 26th on the list with US$72 million; Robert Downey Jr was at 31st with US$66 million, whilst Rihanna made it to 36 with US$62 million.

Shawn Mendes is the youngest person in the top 100. At just 20 years old, the If I Can't Have You hit-maker scraped in at 98 on the list with US$38 million. The oldest person on the list is Beatles' legend Sir Paul McCartney, 77 years old, at number 62 with US$48 million.

Other celebrities to feature in the list were Ariana Grande (US$48 million), Jennifer Lopez (US$43 million), Sofía Vergara (US$43 million), Lady Gaga (US$39.5 million) and Celine Dion (US$37.5 million).

Meanwhile, Taylor has less “stress and anxiety” in her life as she approaches 30.

She said: “I hear others say that one in her 30s no longer has as much stress and anxiety in life as in their 20s. And I can join in the observation that we are in our twenties looking to gain experience, try things out, fail, make mistakes.”
