When it comes to top-earning women in the music world, Katy Perry reigns supreme!
On Monday, Forbes revealed their Highest-Paid Women in Music list for 2018 and the “Hot N Cold” singer once again took the top spot by earning $83 million between June of 2017 and June of 2018.
Most of her cash flow comes from her Witness tour which included 80 dates in that time period, earning over a million each time.
This is the first time she’s claimed the top spot since 2015, when she embarked upon the Prismatic tour and raked in $135 million that year.
Coming in second place for 2018 is Perry’s sometimes friend, sometimes frenemy, Taylor Swift, who earned $80 million over the same period with her Reputation album and its subsequent tour.
Placing third is none other than Beyonce, who made $60 million. If you’re wondering why neither she nor Swift came out on top — seeing how all three were on tour this year — it’s because most of Beyonce and Swift’s tour dates fell after June, meaning both will be vying for No. 1 next time.
Check out the full list below:
1. Katy Perry ($83 million)
2. Taylor Swift ($80 million)
3. Beyoncé ($60 million)
4. Pink ($52 million)
5. Lady Gaga ($50 million)
6. Jennifer Lopez ($47 million)
7. Rihanna ($37.5 million)
8. Helene Fischer ($32 million)
9. Celine Dion ($31 million)
10. Britney Spears ($30 million)
