In addition to the tour moolah, Swift draws in the dough from album sales, merchandising and endorsement deals.

Swift beat out now ex-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, who lands number 21 on the list, with an estimated earnings of $63 million.
Bey-Jay's earnings for the year were a paltry $107.5 million.
Well, it was enough to make them the highest paid celeb couple.
Those losers only earned a combined $74.5 million.
Swift also trounced fellow break-up song queen, Adele, who ranked number 9 on Forbes list, having earned $80.5 million in the past year.
Stern ranks number 7 with an annual paycheck of $85 million, while Hart pulled in an astonishing $87.5 million.
Kardashian only scored the number 42 spot, with earnings of $51 million. But, she did land the magazine's front cover—so, glass half full and all that.
The bulk of KK's earnings came from her mobile game—Kim Kardashian Hollywood—proving the world really is a terrible place.
Not surprisingly, the game's maker, Glu Mobile, is planning to release an app starring Swift sometime next year.
