Who Was 2015’s Highest-Paid Woman In Music?

Celina

Not Taylor Swift.

TayTay was in fact the runner up to the top-earning woman — Katy Perry. Perry pulled in $135 million this year compared to Swift’s $80 million.

Who cares about Bad Blood when you’re making Good Money?

Perry’s Prismatic World Tour, hit singles, and multiple endorsements with companies like Covergirl and Claire’s helped her get the top spot.

The scoring period measured income from June 2014-June 2015. But next year won’t be as easy for Perry to clinch, Swift’s 1989 World Tour is grossing well over $4 million a show (with the help from all her famous friends/every famous person she could get her hands on), double the Prismatic Tour’s $2 million per show haul this year.

The list, as researched and reported by Forbes, places Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks ($59.5 million), Lady Gaga ($59 million) and Beyonce ($54 million) in the top five.
