Transcript for Taylor Swift Named Billboard's Highest-Earning Artist
unwi unwill -- we begin with Taylor swift. Far from seeing red, yeah, thank you. Thank you. 24-year-old named the highest earning artist of the year according to "Billboard" moneymaker list bringing in close to $40 million, digital downloads and touring. Number two, Kenny Chesney. Country music. Country music then Justin Timberlake in third and want to show you with on the list I thought this was great. Bon jovi, rolling stone, beyonce, maroon five, number ten, Fleetwood Mac, still in the game earning nearly $20 million. I thought that was interesting. Rock on. Also in "Pop news" this morning, Katie Holmes is heading back to the screen. Starring in a pilot on ABC produced by the writer of "Behind the candelabra" she plays an Audrey hepburnesque star. Since her days on "Dawson's creek." Out and about town a lot and just really in a very good place. She's sort of does her own thing. Cool. Welcome back. And finally, an incredible interview just released that got us laughing a little shocked this morning. President Obama having words with actor Zach galifianakis on his show. What is it like to be the last black president? Seriously? What's it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a president? It must stink that you can't run three times, you know. Actually I think it's a good idea. You know, if I ran a third time it would be sort of like doing a third "Hangover" movie. Didn't really work out very well. I don't think that -- don't touch that. Thanks for the interview and thanks for letting me shoot my show here all these years. You've been shooting these shows here in the diplomatic room? Fantastic. See. I didn't want to interrupt it. The control room is saying wrap it up. You got 0 check it out. It's the president and young viewers encouraging them to take advantage of the affordable care act. A lot of fun doing it. Zach has a great interview as an interviewer. They're so good. I highly recommend it. I can't wait.
