Every time Taylor Swift makes us wonder how she does it, again she beats other celebrities as highest income earners in 2016 according to Forbes.
2016 definitely had its fair share of ups and downs, but financially at least, it was very good to Taylor Swift!
The 1989 singer topped Forbes’ list of highest-earning celebrities under 30 this year, earning a staggering $170 million.
On the strength of her massively successful last album and tour, as well as a number of endorsement deals, Swift came out ahead of the next entry on the list, One Direction — including the 26-year-old singer’s ex-boyfriend, Harry Styles, — who drew in $110 million.
Other notable stars on the list include Adele (4), who made $80.5 million, Rihanna (5), at $75 million, the Weeknd (9), $55 million, and Drake (18), who was counted on this list despite turning 30 this year, and earned $38 million.
With $46 million, Jennifer Lawrence (12), remained Hollywood’s highest-paid actress, and Justin Bieber (6), took home $56 million (and at 22, barely beat out Styles for the youngest star on this list).
