Forbes Honors Taylor Swift For Being Super Rich, American & Young


Taylor Swift is living her twenties in style.

As if we didn’t already know Swift has it all, Forbes is reminding us.

They published a story boasting all of the 1989 singer’s accomplishments – her 10 Grammys, five Guinness World records, an Emmy and six consecutive appearances in their Celebrity 100 list, and now she can add one more to the books: she’s the youngest woman on Forbes’ America’s Wealthiest Self-Made Women list.

Swift clocks in at $250 million, claiming the No. 60 spot on a list that includes moguls such as Oprah Winfrey ($3.1 billion), Tory Burch ($750 million) and Diane von Furstenberg ($340 million) and fellow musicians like Madonna ($560 million), Barbra Streisand ($370 million) and Beyonce Knowles ($265 million).

Forbes points out Swift’s best-selling album of 2014, the deliciously pop 1989, moved 3.7 million units and helped her earn $80 million. A year later, she easily surpassed that figure with the 1989 Tour, which grossed a quarter of a billion dollars last year… “far more than any other tour.”

Shout-out to Madonna for remaining the top female musician and Beyonce for being the next youngest (after Swift, of course).

Now, time for us peasants to get back to scraping by.
