Katy Perry Is 2015's Highest Earning Woman in Music!

Katy Perry shows off her stunning black ensemble on the red carpet at the 2015 Change Begins Within Benefit Gala held at Carnegie Hall on Wednesday (November 4) in New York City.

The 31-year-old entertainer was joined at the event by Patrick Stewart, Sting, Jerry Seinfeld, and more. Katy took the stage and performed at the event alongside some ballerinas.

That same day, Forbes released 2015’s highest-earning women in music list, and Katy came in at number one with $135 million made this year. Taylor Swift came in at number two with $80 million. Rounding out the top five were Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie, with Lady Gaga and Beyoncé.

FYI: Katy is wearing a Yousef Aljasmi jumpsuit, a Balmain x H&M belt, and a Kavant & Sharart ring on the carpet. The event was hosted by the David Lynch Foundation and sponsored by Citi.

    I don’t know Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie.

    Hard to believe she earned more than Taylor…could be Perry pumping herself up again.

    From a band called Fleetwood Mac popular in the 70′s and 80′s. They were very popular.

    Or she could have topped Swift due to performing at the Super Bowl. I assume that pays quite a lot.

  • k.

    But how? I have barely seen or heard of Katy all year, and when I have it’s been about Taylor or John. Seriously, can someone tell me?

  • the question

    You don’t get paid singing at the superbowl. It’s for free publicity.

    Katy has that Cover Girl campaign & she’s been touring since the beginning of the year, and that’s where the money is. Taylor only started touring a few months ago. I’m sure next year she’ll be number one on the list when that tour revenue comes in & she’ll be giving herself (and that annoying little squad she prances around with) a big ol pat on the back. Right now though, Taylor is probably calling Forbes and demanding a recount.
