Taylor Swift Is Top-Earning Artist

Taylor Swift is the top-earning entertainer in the world, according to Forbes’ annual celebrity 100 list. The country-turned-pop star, whose last album, “1989,” has sold more than 5m units in the US alone, raked in $170m from June 2015 to June 2016, to put her at the top of the list. Her new ranking puts her higher than last year’s highest-paid musician, Katy Perry, who banked $135m in 2015, according to Forbes. Perry reached the top last year on the strength of a world tour, a string of hit songs and lucrative product endorsements.
