Quote

Taylor Swift begins the Lover era at No. 1 on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, pulling in pretax income of $185 million over the past year, her biggest earnings total yet. Her estimated pay grew 131%, after clocking in at $80 million in 2018.

 

The pop singer has topped the Celebrity 100 before—in 2016, she captured the No. 1 spot with $170 million, courtesy of The 1989 World Tour. Touring continues to play a crucial role in Swift’s road to the top. The Reputation Stadium Tour surpassed her own 1989 World Tour as the highest-grossing in the U.S., raking in $266.1 million domestically, according to Billboard Boxscore. The 53-stadium trek ultimately reached 36 cities, seven countries and four continents, closing with $345 million overall.

 

In 2018, Netflix brought the Reputation Stadium Tour to living rooms on New Years Eve, after acquiring the exclusive rights to the tour for a live concert special. The streaming giant’s payout and endorsement deals with Apple, AT&T and Diet Coke added millions to Swift’s coffers.

She’s joined on the list by fellow musicians including Beyoncé (No. 20 on the overall list, $81 million), newcomer Ariana Grande (No. 62, $48 million) and divas boosted by lucrative Las Vegas residencies: Jennifer Lopez (No. 76, $43 million), Lady Gaga (No. 90, $39.5 million) and Celine Dion (No. 100, $37.5 million). 

Kylie Jenner (No. 2, $170 million) and her half-sister Kim Kardashian West (No. 26, $72 million) both own their cosmetics companies outright, earning them nine-figures and eight-figure checks, respectively. Rihanna (No. 36, $62 million) co-owns the wildly popular Fenty Beauty with luxury goods group LVMH.
