Forbes’ new list of the highest-paid women in music in 2015 has come out and this year’s title goes to Katy Perry with estimated annual earnings of $135 million.
Most of this money came from her endorsement deals with Covergirl, Coty and Claire’s Accessories, as well as from her Prismatic world tour, which lasted until October. Last year, Perry placed fifth with $40 million dollars, which means that she’s more than tripled her yearly earnings in only a year!
Second place went to Taylor Swift, with her annual earnings adding up to a total of $80 million. In 2014, Forbes’ list estimated them to be $64 million. Last year’s highest-paid woman in music, Beyoncé, placed fifth this time with a total of $54 million.
