There’s no “Blank Space” in Taylor Swift’s bank account. The singer-songwriter tops Forbes’ annual list of the 100 highest-paid celebrities with $170 million. One Direction came second after earning $110m which should tide them over while they enjoy a hiatus from making music. Swift is ahead of fellow chart-topping pop stars Adele at No. 9 with $80.5 million, Madonna at No. 12 with $76.5 million, Rihanna at No. 13 with $75 million and Katy Perry at No. 63 with $41 million.
Such a tremendous honour to be on the cover of @forbes! I never dreamed this would happen and know my Dad would be so proud.
Reality star Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian is featured on the magazine’s cover. She’s No. 42 on the list with $51 million. Forbes says 40 percent of her paycheck this year came from her mobile game “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood”. The game’s maker, Glu Mobile, is scheduled to release an app starring Swift later this year.
