Taylor Swift was revealed as the highest paid celebrity under the age of 30 by Forbes magazine today, who estimates that she raked in close to $60 million in 2012. Sixty million dollars. She’s twenty-fucking-two. The Daily Mail says:
The 22-year-old star’s riches are largely due to the success of her albums and tours, with CDs Taylor Swift, Fearless and Speak Now going platinum at least four times.
Swift even beat out Justin Bieber, the only male celebrity in the top five.
The rest of the top five are filled out by female singers with Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry taking third, fourth and fifth places.
