Taylor Swift has already topped Forbes’ lists of highest-paid women in music and highest-earning celebrity under 30, so it probably comes as no surprise that she’s now been crowned Forbes’ highest-paid musician in the world.
From June 1, 2015, to June 1, 2016, the singer hauled in an estimated $170 million thanks to her mega-successful 1989 tour and various product endorsements.
One Direction came in at No. 2 with $110 million, while Adele ranked third with $80.5 million.
According to Forbes, Adele is one of the few acts that still makes more on recorded music than anything else. She famously turns down any potential endorsement deals that come her way.
Madonna comes in fourth on the list with $76.5 million, and Rihanna rounds out the top five with $75 million.

Kanye West Released From Hospital: 'He Is Home Getting Some Rest'
Kanye West has been discharged from UCLA Medical Center, where he has been under heavy medical supervision since being admitted on Nov. 21.
“He is home, getting some rest,” a source close to West confirms to PEOPLE.
“Kanye is at home with Kim and the kids. He seems okay and happy to be home. Kim’s family is visiting,” a source close to the family tells PEOPLE. “Kanye will continue to receive treatment and help with how to cope with stress. He needs to learn how to better balance his work and family life.”
West, 39, was hospitalized for exhaustion and sleep deprivation shortly after he canceled the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo tour, and remained there over the Thanksgiving holiday. Sources close to the rapper insist that he was not committed against his wishes.
“He went to the hospital at will under the advice of his physician,” a source told PEOPLE, adding that the entertainer “was not restrained” and “went freely.”
matt lauer to stay with 'today show' for $20 million per year
Matt Lauer re-signed his Today Show contract, keeping him on as co-host for at least two more years - at $20 million per year. Lauer reportedly signed the contract months ago. “The new deal will take him well into 2018,” said a source familiar with the deal. But another NBC insider said Lauer’s new “multiyear” agreement could actually be longer. Either way, the move brings stability to the show after a recent bumpy ride — including the arrival and then quick departure of Billy Bush following the now-infamous tape from 2005 that caught him having a lewd conversation with Donald Trump. Earlier reports this year said Lauer could leave Today after the election, but there was also speculation he would exit back in 2014 before he signed his previous two-year, $20 million-a-year deal.
