According to Forbes, Swift’s ‘1989’ world tour brought in $200M last year, “smash[ing] The Rolling Stones‘ North American touring record.

“[It grossed] $200 million on the continent en route to quarter of a billion dollars in total,” Forbes said. “She also pads her pocketbook by shilling for brands including Diet Coke, Keds and Apple.”

Swift’s ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris did OK. He’s #21 on the list, earning $63 million.
