TAYLOR SWIFT WORLD’S HIGHEST-PAID CELEBRITY: FORBES
    2016-07-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    泰勒·斯威夫特登顶福布斯全球名人收入排行榜榜首

    At the tender age of 26, Taylor Swift is the world’s highest-paid celebrity, pulling in a whopping* US$170 million over the past year, Forbes magazine said on Tuesday.

    The pop diva*’s take from June 2015 to June 2016 is the highest total of her young career, the magazine said, more than doubling her previous record of US$80 million last year.

    She out-earned other famous musicians including Adele (US$80.5 million), Madonna (US$76.5 million), Rihanna (US$75 million) and Bruce Springsteen (US$60.5 million).

    The “Shake It Off” singer also outpaced* rival* Katy Perry who was last year’s top-earning musician at US$135 million, according to Forbes magazine’s annual list of 100 highest-paid celebrities.

    Perry dropped to number 63 on this year’s list, earning a mere* US$41 million.

    Swift’s huge earnings were largely thanks to her “1989 World Tour” during which she smashed* the Rolling Stone’s North American record, grossing US$200 million on the continent en route to a quarter of a billion worldwide, the magazine said.

    Coming in at number two on the list this year was the boy band One Direction (US$110 million), followed by author James Patterson (US$95 million).

    Swift’s former beau*, musician Calvin Harris, also made the cut coming in at number 21 (US$63 million).

    “The world’s 100 highest-paid celebrities pulled in US$5.1 billion pretax over the past 12 months, more than the GDP of Belize, Gambia and Bhutan combined,” Forbes said.

    Magazine editor Zack O’Malley Greenberg said live entertainment continues to be a major cash draw.

    “From soccer games in Spain to concerts in China, fans are willing to shell out to see big names — and this is driving the celebrity economy to ever greater heights,” he said in a statement.

    On the Hollywood front, Jennifer Lawrence was the industry’s highest-paid actress for the second consecutive year, earning US$46 million, a slight drop from the US$52 million “The Hunger Games” star banked the year before.

    Actor Dwayne Johnson wrestled the highest-paid actor spot from “Iron Man’s” Robert Downey Jr., earning US$64.5 million.
