How? The hefty pay-check came by way of her 1989 world tour, which made a quarter of a billion dollars in total. The 26-year-old also endorses Keds, Diet Coke and Apple, which add to her earnings considerably.

It’s a huge boost on last year’s wages, when she made $80 million. Also making the list include Adele with $80.5, Rihanna with $75 million and Swift’s ex, Calvin Harris, with $63 million.
