Taylor Swift's Earning Power Is Incredible

She's topped Billboard's money-makers list of 2015

It seems that Taylor Swift's power truly knows no bounds.


Not only does she have the world's most envied girl squad, and is part of the most relationship goals couple we've ever seen, (remember those holiday shots with Calvin?) she's now been announced as the highest paid musician of 2015, according to Billboard's Money-Makers list. 

Thanks to her incredible 1989 tour, which featured cameos from everyone from Julia Roberts to Mick Jagger, Taylor's total revenue for 2015 came in at a whopping £50.72 million. Yikes!


Also on the list were The Rolling Stones, whose total revenue of £27.33 million landed them at 3rd, and One Direction, whose total earnings of £16.72 million placed them at 5th. 

Despite not touring in 2015, Adele came in at 9th, with a total revenue of £14.15 million. Though not quite the £50.72 million of Taylor Swift, this is certainly an impressive feat, her revenue having been generated entirely from good old fashioned album sales. 

Further down the list were Ariana Grande, who came in at 29th, with a total revenue of £5.73 million, and Sam Smith, whose earnings of £5.18 million placed him at 31. 

Nicki Minaj came in at 39th, with a total revenue of £4.35 million.

Who run the world? Taylor.
