Katy Perry Is the Highest-Paid Female Singer of 2015
Sorry, Taylor Swift.
The numbers are in and Katy Perry has been named the highest-paid songstress of 2015. According to Forbes, the “Roar” singer beat out her “Bad Blood” nemesis by raking in a whopping $135 million in the past year alone.
The magazine reports that most of the 31-year-old’s earnings came from her super successful Prismatic World Tour, which grossed roughly $2 million per city on each of her 126 tour stops. Perry also holds endorsement deals with Coty, Claire’s and CoverGirl.
“I am proud of my position as a boss, as a person that runs my own company,” she told the publication earlier this year when she was named the top-earning female celebrity of 2015. “I’m an entrepreneur. … I don’t want to shy away from it. I actually want to kind of grab it by its balls.”
