Katy Perry has racks on rack on racks! Not those…I’m talking about money!
The 31-year-old “Roar” singer is 2015’s highest paid woman in music according to Forbes.
Largely because of her Prismatic World Tour, which is now winding down, Perry pulled in $135 million this year. She grossed more than $2 million per city over the course of 126 shows in our scoring period, and added to her total through deals with Coty, Claire’s and Covergirl.
“I am proud of my position as a boss, as a person that runs my own company,” Perry told FORBES for our Celebrity 100 cover story this past summer. “I’m an entrepreneur. … I don’t want to shy away from it. I actually want to kind of grab it by its balls.”
Taylor Swift copped the no. 2 spot with $80 million. Fleetwood Mac scooped $59.6 million, Lady Gaga brought in $59 million, and Beyonce rounded out the top 5 with $54.5 million.
Who run the world? GIRLS!
