On Wednesday, Forbes Celebrity 100 list revealed 29-year-old Taylor was the highest paid celebrity in 2019 drawing in a staggering $185 million before tax. Yup, you read that correctly. Her biggest earning total yet was largely the result of Taylors 2018 Reputation tour which drew in over $266 million after Netflix secured the exclusive rights – and this is before her upcoming album Lover is released next month.
By contrast, Kylie was a casual $15 million behind with earnings of $170 million through her beauty brand, Kylie Cosmetics. While these figures are too high for us to even contemplate, the stakes are certainly high when youre a billionaire.
In March this year, Kylie Jenner was announced as the youngest self-made billionaire ever, overtaking Facebook founder Marc Zuckerberg. This milestone moment was the result of the 21-year-old's enormously successful beauty empire which she founded in 2015. At the time, the youngest member of the Kardashian clan said: “I didnt expect anything. I did not foresee the future".
But what she almost definitely wont have foreseen was Taylor claiming the title a matter of months later.
