Hollywood pop star Katy Perry has left all her competitors including Taylor Swift behind in the race of highest paid women in music. The ‘Dark Horse’ hit maker has gained the number one spot with a huge margin leaving Taylor Swift in second position, Fleetwood Mac in third position, Lady Gaga in forth and Beyonce in fifth position in the list of highest paid women in Hollywood music business. The amount these ladies earn with their album sales and tours will blow your mind!
According to Forbes magazine, Katy Perry earns a whooping amount of $135 million in a year’s time. The singer has performed over 126 shows raking in minimum of $2 million from each show. Her deals with brands like Coty, Claire’s and Covergirl also contribute to the above said amount. Taylor Swift on the other hand has emerged as a single handed contender of her age group earning $80 million a year. Her latest album 1989 has sold more than 3.6 million copies and she is raking in $2 million from every city she tours in.
Beyonce earned $54.5 million, Lady Gaga stands at $59 million and Fleetwood Mac stands just half a million dollars ahead of Lady Gaga at $59.5 million.
