Taylor Swift Is One of the Three Top-Earning Celebs Under 30
By now, Taylor Swift is probably used to making money — a lot of money. Last year, she was named the wealthiest superstar under 30, and this year, she again landed among the Top 3 top-earning celebrities under 30.
Forbes reveals that Swift earned a whopping $55 million between June 2012 and June 2013. She swiped the third position on the list, right behind Justin Bieber, who took home $58 million, and Lady Gaga, who pocketed an impressive $80 million.
The fan-favorite Swift earned her paycheck through a number of different ventures. Of course, her latest album ‘Red,’ which sold 1.2 million copies in its first week, gave her a huge boost, especially since today’s music world doesn’t often see those enormous numbers. Swift also has endorsement deals with big name companies such as Diet Coke, Sony SNE and Covergirl.
Also in the Top 10 are Calvin Harris, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Adele, Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
Although Swift no longer holds the top spot on Forbes’ prestigious list, she certainly had enough dough this spring to to purchase her Rhode Island mansion in cash. At 23 years old, that’s a pretty big deal. And who knows, with the tremendous success of her Red Tour, she could be at the top of the list again next year.
