Taylor Swift is highest paid young celeb
Fri, 13 Jul 2012 9:21a.m.
Country sweetheart Taylor Swift has beaten Justin Bieber to the top of a new Forbes magazine poll documenting the Highest Paid Celebrities Under 30.
The ‘Love Story’ hitmaker is estimated to have raked in US$57 million in the period between May, 2011 and May, 2012, thanks to her latest hit album Speak Now, a string of sold-out tour dates and a big endorsement deal with CoverGirl cosmetics.
The 22-year-old edged out 18-year-old Bieber to claim the Forbes crown - the ‘Baby’ superstar earned an impressive US$55 million to land in second place.
Rihanna (US$53 million), Lady Gaga (US$52 million) and Katy Perry (US$45 million) round out the top five.
Other stars to make the top 10 include pregnant singer Adele and Twilight couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
Last year Gaga topped the Highest Paid Celebrities Under 30 poll, banking a whopping US$90 million in a year.
