According to Forbes magazine, country singer Taylor Swift makes more money than any other celebrity under 30.
Swift earned $57 million between May 2011 and May 2012. A large chunk of this had to have been from sales of Speak Now, several sold-out concerts, and her new endorsement deal with CoverGirl.
The Love Story hitmaker, 22, beat Justin Bieber, 18, to the top of the list. Bieber didn’t do so badly either – the Baby hitmaker raked in a respectable $55 million and makes it to the second spot.
The top five include Rihanna with $53 million, Lady Gaga with $52 million and Katy Perry with $45 million. Singer Adele and actors Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart made it to the top ten.
In 2011, the top spot was reigned by Gaga with earnings of a cool $90 million in one year.
