Forbes unveiled the highest-paid stars under the age of 30
Taylor Alison Swift was born on Dec. 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. Thanks to her album and tour named after the year of her birth, the 26-year-old pop superstar banked $170 million in a year, which makes her the top-earning celebrity in the world.
Swift’s 1989 tour grossed $200 million in North America, demolishing the Rolling Stones’ record, and went on to gross a quarter of a billion dollars in total for her world tour. The album of the same name sold more than 9 million copies worldwide and placed in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 for an entire year. 1989 also made Swift the first woman ever to win the Best Album of the Year Grammy twice. She also padded her paycheck with endorsement deals with Apple, Diet Coke, Keds and other brands. With all these ventures, Swift is the youngest member of FORBES list of America’s Richest Female Entertainers with an estimated net worth of $250 million.
