Calvin Harris Tops Ex Taylor Swift In Forbes Highest Paid Celebrity Rankings

Taylor Swift Topped By A Familiar Face In Forbes Highest Paid Celebrity List- Calvin Harris featureForbes has dropped its list of the 100 highest earning celebrities in the last year. Working with gross, pre-tax income estimates, the publication has revealed who the best paid stars in the world are. While Sean “Diddy” Combs and Beyoncé were an unsurprising top two, there were a few unexpected entries on the list.

Selena Gomez’s obsession, The Weeknd, clocked in at number six thanks to streaming revenue and ticket sales. That might make Selena proud, but her pal Taylor Swift might be having a harder time with some of the rankings.

With $44 million, she clocked in at number 49 without a mega tour to propel her upward. But a familiar name is ahead of her by a few places; her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris out-earned her by $4.5 million. Taylor got a piece of that action, and maybe even helped increase his visibility through their messy breakup.

Taylor Swift Dethrones Katy Perry As The World’s Highest-Paid Woman In Music

Taylor Swift Dethrones Katy Perry As The World's Highest-Paid Woman In MusicTaylor Swift has been named the highest-paid woman in music of 2016. The singer takes the top of Forbes’ annual list, knocking Katy Perry out of her $135 million first place spot from last year. Taylor more than doubled her $80 million earnings from last year by raking in $170 million. In July, Taylor Swift was crowned as the highest-paid global celebrity of 2016, which takes away some of the shock value from Forbes’ latest findings.

Adele snagged the second spot on this year’s list with less than half of Taylor’s earnings at $80.5 million. Rihanna pulled in $75 million to take fourth while Beyoncé takes her $54 million to fifth.

Where does Katy rank, you might ask? She falls behind Bey at sixth with $41 million, just about half of Taylor’s second place earnings from last year.

Take a peak at the full list below.

Are you surprised by the results?
