Although there are several stops left to go before Taylor Swift's 1989 Tour is complete, the singer's show has already reached a major milestone—and yes, it's one that places the pop star in the same company as five other very iconic artists: Madonna, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Pink and even her rumored nemesis, Katy Perry.
So what is it that all of these divas have in common now? Income. And lots of it, too. Since 2010, the Wildest Dream crooner and the aforementioned women have been music's only acts to gross more than $100,000,000 in tour revenue, Billboard reports.
With $173 million made after just 17 weeks and 59 concerts, it seems as though Swift is looking to dethrone Queen Bey yet again (the first time was on Instagram, when she also surpassed Kim Kardashian in followers).
Now that T. Swift is $173 million richer, she could afford to purchase approximately 115,333 of her beloved Scottish fold cats—which somewhat confirms that money can most definitely buy happiness. More siblings for Meredith and Olivia perhaps?
