-- Taylor Swift has already topped Forbes’ lists of highest-paid women in music and highest-earning celebrity under 30, so it probably comes as no surprise that she’s now been crowned Forbes’ highest-paid musician in the world.
From June 1, 2015, to June 1, 2016, the singer hauled in an estimated $170 million, thanks to her megasuccessful 1989 tour and various product endorsements.
One Direction came in at No. 2 with $110 million, and Adele ranked third with $80.5 million.
