Taylor Swift is getting stronger and faster. She is the highest paid celebrity, according to Forbes.

The singer earned $185 million during 2018.

The news may be the best sound she has ever heard since 2016.

In 2016 she also topped the list, at $170 million.

Swift’s influence is growing like a full-on rainstorm.

Her bank account is being filled in payouts and endorsements from Apple, Diet Coke, AT&T.

Netflix bought the exclusive rights for Swift’s “Reputation” Stadium Tour.

The Reputation tour reportedly earned $266 million.

In 2018, she joined with Universal Music Group’s Republic Records. The deal may be worth as much as $200 million.

Swift has stated that she will retain ownership for any of her work with UMG.

Big Machine Label Group control much of her previous work. Swift split with BMLG in November 2018, and they are probably never, ever getting back together.

The number two on the list of top paid celebrities is Kylie Jenner. Jenner’s work brought her $170 million in 2018.

Jenner retains full ownership of Kylie Cosmetics, which sold an estimated $360 million worth of products.

Other celebrities who are rolling in the dough enough sit high on the list is Kanye West, Lionel Messi, and Ed Sheeran.
