America’s sweetheart Taylor Swift has taken the top spot as the highest-paid entertainer, reportedly making around $1 million a day so far this year. Taylor has put out a number of popular albums, including her 2010 album Speak Now (which she still is cashing in on). More recently, Swift has done a series of endorsements from various companies including Keds, Sony, and Diet Coke. In 2015 between her 1989 album taking the top spots on charts worldwide and the 85 stops on an almost sold out tour, this pop superstar is making more cash than anyone else in the industry.
Her gross earnings so far total at a whopping $317 million, making Taylor the highest-paid performer in the world. In comparison to the highest-paid male musicians of 2014 who even come close are Jay Z, Drake, and P. Diddy, who only made a total $155.5 million combined.
All we seem to know is people love Taylor Swift. Swift is also the Queen of Social Media with 52 million followers on Instagram, 65 million followers on Twitter, and 73 million likes on her Facebook page.
