Taylor Swift is one of the most recognizable musicians in the world. She’s also one of the highest-paid of all time. In 2019, she raked in an estimated $185 million, beating out her record-breaking 2018. In fact, she was Forbes Highest Paid Celebrity for the year, beating many other notable personalities. With such dominance in finances, here are the 5 ways she became Filthy Rich:
1. Highest-Grossing U.S. Tour
One of the strongest sources of income for the artist is her world record numbers throughout her tours. Specifically, her ‘Reputation’ Stadium Tour has topped Rolling Stones and their 70-date A Bigger Bang Tour – the previous record holder. Her 53-stadium journey earned $266.1 million domestically, and $345 million overall according to Forbes. This narrowly beat the old record of $245 million, but signs show that Swift is on track to earn more with future tours.
