Taylor Swift has a lot to be happy about. She has had a great year, overall.
Sure, she got dumped by DJ Calvin Harris recently, but that’s didn’t seem to both her much considering that she immediately started going out with Hollywood hunk Tom Hiddleston.
But on the business side of things, it was all ups and no downs for Swift this year.
Forbes just named her the unanimous champion when it comes to making money, crowning her the highest-earning celebrity of the year.
According to Forbes, she made $170 million in between June 2015 and June 2016. Most of that cash comes from her massive world tour, which wrapped up back in December 2015. According to reports, the 1989 Work Tour ended up making a ridiculous $250 million all in all.
If you want to take a look at the competition, there really is none. Think about this – Swift made more money this year than Beyonce and Jay Z combined.
Popular pop group One Direction ended up in second place, but they made $60 million less than Swift did this year, so it’s not even close.
