Taylor Swift Tops Forbes 100 highest paid celebrities 2016 with $170 million


Taylor Swift has emerged the highest paid celebrity on Forbes 2016 list beating top celebrities like Beyonce who made number 34 on the list and Jay Z number 36.

The pop diva pulled in $170 million over the past year, giving her the No. 1 spot on the 2016 FORBES Celebrity 100 list.

Swift’s payday comes courtesy of her massive 1989 World Tour. She smashed the Rolling Stones’ North American touring record, grossing $200 million on the continent en route to quarter of a billion dollars in total. She also pads her pocketbook by shilling for brands including Diet Coke, Keds and Apple.

The superstar’s total is barely half as high as last year’s Celeb 100 champ’s haul–Floyd Mayweather pulled in $300 million in 2015 after the fight of the century with Manny Pacquiao–but it’s easily more than last year’s highest-paid musician, Katy Perry, who banked $135 million.

Swift’s 2016 take is by far the highest total of her career, more than doubling last year’s $80 million sum, her previous best.
