PICS: The 20 Highest Paid Entertainers of 2016, Revealed

It pays to be Taylor Swift. PHOTOS: Taylor Swift and Her Signature High-Waisted Shorts The 26-year-old singer/songwriter is topping Forbes annual list of the 100 highest-paid celebrities with a whopping $170 million earned between June 2015 and June 2016. Swift is ahead of several fellow female chart-toppers, including Adele ($80.5 million), Madonna ($76.5 million) and Rihanna ($75 million), among others. In second place is her ex, 22-year-old singer Harry Styles, along with the his fellow members of British boy band One Direction, who all made the cut with a mere (collective) $110 million. And while many were expecting reality TV star Kim Kardashian to come out near the top, if not on top (especially since she's featured on the magazine’s cover), the 35-year-old actually landed at No. 43, with a respectable $51 million in earnings thanks to the help of her mobile game empire.
