LOS ANGELES (AP) — There’s no “Blank Space” in Taylor Swift’s bank account.
The singer-songwriter tops Forbes’ annual list of the 100 highest-paid celebrities with $170 million.
Swift is ahead of fellow chart-topping pop stars Adele at No. 9 with $80.5 million, Madonna at No. 12 with $76.5 million, Rihanna at No. 13 with $75 million and Katy Perry at No. 63 with $41 million.
The “Shake It Off” crooner’s star-studded “1989 World Tour” earned more than $200 million last year.
Swift’s DJ ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris landed at No. 21 on the magazine’s list with $63 million.
Other top 10 earners included boy band One Direction at No. 2 with $110 million, actor-comedian Kevin Hart at No. 6 with $87.5 million and self-proclaimed “king of media” Howard Stern at No. 7 with $85 million.
Kim Kardashian is featured on the magazine’s cover. She’s No. 42 on the list with $51 million. Forbes says 40 percent of her paycheck this year came from her mobile game “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.”
The game’s maker, Glu Mobile, is scheduled to release an app starring Swift next year.
At twenty-six, Taylor is the youngest to make this list with a net worth estimated at $250 Million. This prestigious list by Forbes includes moguls such as Oprah Winfrey, Jessica Alba, and Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg.
At age 26, Taylor Swift has already won plenty of accolades: 10 Grammys, five Guinness World records and even an Emmy.
A handful of honors have come from FORBES, including Swift’s selection to our inaugural 30 Under 30 list, six consecutive appearances in our Celebrity 100 issue–and, now, the distinction of being the youngest name on our list of America’s wealthiest self-made women.
Swift clocks in at $250 million, claiming the No. 60 spot on a list that includes moguls such as Oprah Winfrey ($3.1 billion), Tory Burch ($750 million) and Diane von Furstenberg ($340 million) and fellow musicians like Madonna ($560 million), Barbra Streisand ($370 million) and Beyonce Knowles ($265 million).
The 2016 Billboard Music Awards was held May 22 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Taylor was nominated for eight awards: Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Touring Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album (1989), Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, and Top Social Media Artist.
She took home the award for Top Touring Artist.
She has a total of 22 BBMAs from 2009 through 2015, and the win from tonight increases that count to 23!
The country star-turned-pop sensation added yet another milestone to her résumé in 2015 — top earner of the year — thanks to her 1989 World Tour, which included cameo appearances by Julia Roberts, Mick Jagger, Joan Baez and… Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade. Swift’s $61.7 million in touring revenue accounted for the lion’s share of her 2015 haul, but Ryan Adams’ stark reinterpretation of her 1989 album also helped make her the top earner of publishing royalties.
The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards have yet to take place, but we can already tell it’s going to be a big night for Taylor Swift .
The music event, which will take place this Sunday, announced today that the singer will receive its first-ever “Best Tour” award for her record-breaking The 1989 World Tour—and we’re not surprised! Aside from putting on an amazing show all over the globe night after night, Swift always left everyone at the edge of their seat when it came to seeing which celeb cameos were going to surprise the crowd each night.
Between gal-pals like Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Lena Dunham and Gigi Hadid to fellow singers Mary J. Blige, John Legend and Ciara, it seemed like no star was left behind!
Along with accepting the award live, Swift is also nominated for seven other categories including “Female Artist of the Year,” “Song of the Year” and “Album of the Year.”
This is the third annual award show for iHeartRadio Music, which will take place at The Forum in Los Angeles and it will also include a seriously star-studded lineup of performances.
Don’t miss the 2016 iHeartMusic Radio Music Awards this Sunday on TBS, TNT and truTV at 8 p.m. EST/ 5 p.m. PST!

Today the Circuit of The Americas (COTA) announced that Taylor Swift is performing at the Formula 1 Grand Prix event in Austin, Texas. The concert will be held on Saturday night (Oct 22nd), the second day of the race.
This will be Taylor’s first performance since her 1989 World Tour ended in December 2015.
Tickets will be available starting April 6th. Visit the COTA website to sign-up for pre-sale and ticket information.
An Austin event that brings thousands each year is expected to be even bigger after announcing Taylor Swift will perform at Formula 1.
Organizer Bobby Epstein said in a news conference that they expect this year’s event to be the biggest Austin has ever seen. Drawing crowds from around the world to the Circuit of the America’s, Formula 1 is a huge economic boost for the city, according to Epstein.
With a big name like Swift, organizers have upgraded 12,000 parking spots to avoid the mud issues they faced during heavy rains last year. There were rumors after the devastating weather last year, that the race would be cancelled for 2016. Epstein said if it rains more than two inches before the race, fans will get a 105 percent ticket refund.
Also announced is the American team Haas, which will be new this year.
Tickets go on sale April 6. Swift will be performing on Saturday this year, unlike the past Sunday performances.
