Taylor Swift, this year, has topped Kylie Jenner’s earnings. Last year, Swift brought back $80 million. However, The popstar has managed to acquire $185 million, leaving Jenner only $10 million behind Swift.

It’s not the first time for Swift to top Forbes’ list. In 2017, she brought back $170 million after her album “Reputation”. In fact, it was actually the most grossing US tour since Billboard started tracking tour earnings back in 1990. Forbes also mentioned how successful Swift’s collaboration with Netflix was as it added millions of dollars to her income.

Swift reveals that many people didn’t believe her Reputation tour would be a success. In fact, many people said that she would be “playing in empty stadiums.” The singer believes this contributed a lot to a boost in her self esteem when the tour was actually a massive success. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned a lot. And one of the things that I’ve learned is life is really unpredictable and people can make forecasts, and they can make predictions, but those predictions and forecasts may not come true if there’s an unforeseeable factor involved. And that unforeseeable factor in this case was my fans. So honestly, I honestly owe everything, everything in my life to you,” Swift tells Forbes. 

Third on the Forbes list comes Kanye West with $150 million. Ed Sheeran was number 5 with $110 million and Kim Kardashian earned $72 million making her number 26.
