Scottish-born British star chef, entrepreneur and reality tv star, Gordon Ramsay came next with yearly acquiring of around 60 million US dollars.

American Electro-pop sensation Lady Gaga chased after Gordon earning 59 million US dollars. As per the magazine, American rapper and business person Jay Z and legendary actor Leonardo De Carpio were proclaimed 4th and 5th subsequently. Previous year top earning musician Katey Perry didn't make the cut, partly because she didn't release any album this year.

It is not the first time Taylor beat Lady Gaga. Truth be told, Taylor was the person who ousted previous year leader Lady Gaga as the Forbes' list of highest-paid celebrity under 30 in 2012.

It's been an astounding year for the ten times Grammy-winning singer.  This year she not only found love with Scottish sensation Calvin Harris but also won several awards.Plus, she is set to be the first person to be honored with BMI's The Taylor Swift Award. Over and above that, her concert '1989' made headlines grossing around 217.43 million US dollars, pulling in 2 million fans and with performances and 71 shows around the world.

No wonder reputed venues like Gillette Stadium loved the capital and advertisement they generated because of the 1989 concert.

However, Taylor doesn't believe in spending money carelessly. Here's a quote from Taylor that will inspire you to spend money smartly.

"I cap myself when I shop; I don't like to spend extravagant amounts on clothes. But, I do get lent clothes for events, it's scary to wear something so expensive, but I feel really pampered."

Last but not the least, Taylor is currently busy renovating her US 25 million $ worth Beverly Hill home.
