Taylor Swift – Highest paid female artists in the World

Highest paid female artists in the World – Singer earned $170m in the last year according to Forbes, more than twice as much as Adele, while 2015’s highest earner Katy Perry drops down to fifth place.

Taylor Swift has topped Forbes magazine’s list of the highest-earning female solo artists in music, with more than twice the income of the second-placed artist, Adele.

The US business magazine estimated Swift earned $170m (£137m) between 1 June 2015 and 1 June 2016, compared to Adele’s $80.5m.Highest paid female artists in the World

While Beyoncé seems low on the list, in fifth place, with $54m, she is likely to be higher next year, when sales from her Formation world tour are taken into account.

Touring is the biggest generator of income for artists these days, and it’s noticeable that last year’s highest earner, Katy Perry, has slipped to sixth place. In 2015, her Prismatic world tour sent her to the top by generating $135m. This year, without that cash machine, she earned $41m.

The bottom four of the top 10, however, did not have to crisscross the world to make money. Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Shania Twain and Celine Dion all took on lucrative residencies in Las Vegas, where casino owners shell out huge sums for marquee acts to draw in gamblers.
