The 1989 singer’s bank account is more than healthy, as she is now the highest paid artist on earth after a massive 2015.

The 25-year-old pop queen has pooled in more than $317m (€279m) since New Year’s Day from her accumulative endorsement deals, record-breaking album sales and a world tour.

Taylor released her fifth album last October and is currently on her 1989 world tour.

Los Angeles-based media analyst Mike Raia told The Daily Mail: “Right now, Taylor is untouchable. She is so far ahead of everyone else in the industry that she has become not only a powerhouse entertainer but also an important mover and shaker on the commercial side on the music business.”

Forbes placed Taylor eigth on their Celebrity rich list and predict she will hit a billionaire status by the time she turns 30.
