We need to calm down after learning how much money Taylor Swift has in her bank account.
The “Lover” singer, 29, is reportedly worth a whopping $360 million, according to Forbes. So, how did Swift earn her income?
First of all, music. Although Swift has produced seven studio albums—Taylor Swift, Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989, Reputation and Lover—they aren’t responsible for the majority of her net worth. Most of her recent earnings stem from her Reputation Stadium Tour. (FYI: It’s the highest-grossing tour in U.S. history, with gross earnings totaling a cool $266.1 million.)
Although it shattered records, the income was only slightly larger than her 1989 World Tour, which grossed more than $250 million. (NBD.)
Apart from touring, Swift has brought in an estimated $10 million from record sales, streaming and publishing royalties over the past year. To top it off, Billboard estimates that she sells $17 of merchandise for every concert ticket purchased—just let that sink in.
In addition to music, Swift also has a number of long-standing endorsement deals, including Keds, Diet Coke, CoverGirl and Apple.
Swift’s growing net worth should come as no surprise to dedicated fans, since the singer recently earned the number-one spot on Forbes’s list of the world’s highest paid celebrities. According to the outlet, Swift made $185 million (pre-tax) this year, so yeah, we weren’t kidding.
A net worth of $360 million and no intention of stopping? Look what we made her do.
