Taylor Swift Tops 'Forbes' Top Earning Celeb List with $170 Million!

Taylor Swift has achieved a huge accomplishment – she topped Forbes‘ list of the world’s top-earning celebs for 2016!

The 26-year-old singer earned $170 million in the past year, mainly from her 1989 World Tour, which grossed $250 million in total. She also earned bucks from her endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Apple, and Keds.

If Taylor and Calvin Harris had stayed together as a couple, they would have been the top-earning celeb couple. He landed at number 21 on the list with $63 million.

The top-earning celeb couple now is Beyonce and Jay Z with $107.5 million total.

Taylor‘s earnings this year more than double last year’s earnings of $80 million. Congrats!

    She’s shelling out a good chunk of that to keep Tom by her side–private jets and parties, etc. Tom found a sugarmommy.

    Ah ok keep dreaming you weirdo with delusions. Figures you’re a black chick, most jealous people around.

  • Gina

    I’d rather be poor & authentic than rich and phony any day.

  • klmbs

    Good for her. Hard working and sincere to her fans.

  • dalovelee

    Tom Hiddleston is thinking ‘Ok I can put up with this clinger alot longer’

  • Lenny

    Or you can be dumb, rich and living a fake marriage and life and only care about the paper in bank account just ask Beyoncé.

    Or whore yourself out for fame and money, only friends are your staff and feel so empty that cry on stage in concerts just ask Rihanna

  • Gina

    Honey, this is an article about Taylor Swift. Stay focused. You sound like a damn troll. Interesting how you only brought up black artists in your weak & psychotic rebuttal. Your ass better not be making race a factor here. Stay on topic, ya freak.

    English, hore?

    Calling ppl delusional. You’re the one defending a famous person who doesn’t give a squat abt your existence. You’ll probably cry a bucket when he dumps her.

    Nice going Tay !!!

  • I am Evelyn Salt

    It’s good to be a kept man.

  • Tommi

    English, jealous cnt.

    Figures your avatar is green and the picture is probably a upgrade from your nasty looking face .
    Look 3 black chicks Gina, Alien .. dalovleee..
    Love it when jealous hags prove me right.
    It’s ok maybe one day you’ll get a guy to date you. Might even be a baby momma in your future, you can hope.

  • Tommi

    Who brought up race, besides you? Looks like someone is projecting, the person compared contemporaries. And handly rebutted your trite comment.

    ” your ass better not be making race a factor here”
    That sounds like a threat, do you have a problem controlling your anger, don’t you think violence is enough of problem in the black community, really it isn’t the answer.

    It’s kinda pathetic but funny that you actually think “authentic” and “celebrity” are compatible . Probably think Beyonce’s happly married and her sister was just kidding around ( another person with anger issues) when she beat- on JayZ in the elevator while Beyonce watched on with her dead, vacant eyes. Or that Rihanna and Drake really dating. They’re selling a image, a product. You don’t actually know them.

  • Tommi

    I don’t think you know what “kept man” means. She’s in Australia because he’s working on his Marvel movie. Kept implies, not working, not having fame or money of your own.
    Example,
    JLo boyfriend would be considered a “kept man”, see the difference.

  • I am Evelyn Salt

    She makes more money than him. I bet you she pays for the private jets, and the drivers. If he’s not kept yet he will be soon.

  • Gina

    LMAO, bitch nobody was making a threat. It’s amazing that even online, white people are so threatened by black people. It’s hysterical. That’s why the US is in chaos right now, because of white people walking around so damn afraid of black skin. If you had a gun, you would probably shoot me through the computer screen because you are SO afraid, right? LMAO. Pathetic.
    Now violence in the black community? Don’t you mean police brutality in the black community? I can tell by the tone of your comment that you have racial prejudices, so don’t speak on something your ass knows nothing about. Not today, Satan. Not today.
    Also, I’m not angry like you bastardly suggested earlier, I’m simply perplexed at the sheer stupidity of vermin like you.
    Now, on to the topic of Beyonce and Rihanna that you and that other idiotic poster mentioned OUT OF THE BLUE. They have absolutely nothing to do with my initial comment. Didn’t mention them once. So don’t you dare put words in my mouth. Your dumb ass clearly lacks reading comprehension skills because the article is about Taylor Swift and Taylor Swift is who I was talking about. So who’s the one projecting now? You seem to have a hard-on for these women; but that’s your problem bitch, not mine. If comparing Taylor to other celebs helps you feel better about her manipulative, attention-seeking, and overall trifling ways; then so be it.

    Where’s your pic? They don’t cameras in the trailer park?

    Newsflash!Swiftie doesn’t know you. You have nothing better to do. You come across as bitter, hateful and stalker-ish. You’re minion who cannot be taken serious, since you’re laughable.
