Z95.3 - Vancouver's Best Mix TMZed

Let's just say that Taylor Swift's 'wildest dreams' have come true.. the pop princess pulled in a massive $170 million for just last year alone.


It was a big year for Taylor - she toured North America with her 1989 World Tour and made close to a quarter of a billion dollars from that concert alone. She is also gets cash from representing brands Diet Coke, Keds and Apple.


Taylor takes the crown from Katy Perry, who banked $135 million in the previous year's Forbes Celebrity 100 list.



Other big earners include:

Adele came in at #9 after earning $80.5 million last year. No doubt she will do well on the list next year after touring the world with her sold out concerts.



Rihanna always performs well and came in at #15 with $75 million last year, despite a very quiet year for the pop icon.


Katy Perry however was the big 'loser' last year, scraping in just $41 million and coming in at #63 - down from #1 the previous year.

Calvin Harris might not be enjoying Taylor Swift-type income but he'd be happy with earning $63 million last year and coming in at number #21. He definitely doesn't need any handouts from Taylor with that kind of cash.

The One Direction machine also powers on - they came in at #2, earning $110 million last year. But, obviously they have to split that cash between them.. So they'll still be richer than all of us combined.



Hmmmm.. back to our day jobs for the meantime...
