Forbes’ World’s Highest-Paid Musicians list for 2015 is here

Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour is grossing $4 million per city which is makes Swift a top contender for the No. 1 spot on Forbes’2015 List of the World’s Highest-Paid Musicians.
Swift’s boyfriend, Calvin Harris, is also doing well for himself financially. Although the DJ doesn’t earn quite as much as his Blank Space singing girlfriend, he ranked in an estimated $66 million last year, which put him at No. 6 on Forbes’ list.
Nearly all of the musicians on the list earned a significant amount of money from their non-musical endorsements. Katy Perry has deals with Claire’s, Coty and even Covergirl. Swift is the face of multiple campaigns, such as Keds and Diet Coke.
“Music has changed,” Perry said in an interview with Forbes earlier this year. “The record is that launching pad for all kinds of other creative branches.
Other qualifiers for Forbe’s list include Justin Timberlake ($63.5 million) and Diddy ($60 million).
