So, if you're ever worried about Taylor Swift...don't be, she made $185 million last year...yes, $185 million!!! That is, of course, her estimated pre-tax income. Still, that's a big chunk of cash, largely due to her Reputation Stadium Tour. This puts her on top of FORBES' annual Highest-Paid Celebrity list. I talked to Taylor's mom backstage at the stop in Minneapolis and she told me that since the tour is so big and has several days between stop, Taylor would fly home between shows and fly back to venues instead of living/traveling on a tour bus!
A close second on the list is Kylie Jenner with $170 million thanks to her various show, products, and endorsements.
Here is how the top 10 round out:
- Taylor Swift, $185 million
- Kylie Jenner, $170 million
- Kayne West, $150 million
- Lionel Messi (soccer player), $127 million
- Ed Sheeran, $110 million
- Cristiano Ronaldo (also soccer), $109 million
- Neymar (yep, soccer), $105 million
- The Eagles, $100 million
- Dr. Phil, $95 million
- Canelo Alverz (boxer), $94 million
