Taylor Swift Highest-Paid Female Entertainer of the Year [Hollywood Headlines]

Taylor Swift and Beyoncé rule Forbes’ new list of the world’s highest-paid women in music, but the two pop stars aren’t exactly neck and neck: Swift raked in $185 million last year, more than twice Beyoncé’s $81 million payday. 

So, how did the “Me” singer land such a huge windfall last year? Much of her income comes from her Reputation stadium tour, which grossed a record $266 million in the United States, plus she signed a nine-figure deal with Republic Records, announcing the move last November. 

Also included in the Forbes’ list is Rihanna at number three with $62 million, Katy Perry in fourth with $57.5 million, and Pink rounds out the top five with $57 million.

On October 5th it’s British actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge with Taylor Swift. David Harbour from “Stranger Things” will host on October 12th, with Camila Cabello. Then Kristen Stewart hosts on November 2nd, and Eddie makes his return on December 21st.
