The country-pop star knows how to rake in the cash
After topping the list of top tour earners, Taylor Swift has been announced as the Number 1 on the Forbes Rich List 2016.
The 26-year-old singer amassed a fortune of €153 million, €55 million of which was generated by Swift's 1989 tour.
However, Taylor was far short of last year's top earner, boxer Floyd Mayweather, who after his 'fight of the century' contest with Manny Pacquiao, earned him a whooping €270 million.
Boy band One Direction made €77 million, of which, €22 million was from their world tour.
Other musicians on the list included Glastonbury superstar Adele at ninth place with €72 million, Madonna with €68 million and Rihanna with €67 million.
Finally, Beyonce and Jay Z were named as the highest-paid celebrity couple, raking up €96 million.
