According to Billboard's Top Money Maker's List, the guitar-strumming princess made more than $39 million in 2013 alone. Beyonce, Fleetwood Mac, the Rolling Stones, Pink, Miley Cyrus, Bon Jovi and some of the other big names in the music business didn't even make that much. Tay's fellow country artist Kenny Chesney grabbed the second seat on the list.
What's even crazier than Tay being that filthy rich is that the list's mentioned $39 million isn't ALL she made last year. Billboard's list takes into account touring, recorded music sales, publishing royalties and revenue from digital music and video streaming. The estimate didn't include her merch sales, branding sales and sponsorships. This is also her second time on the list as she topped it in 2011 too.
Other young female artists who topped the 2013 list include Queen Bey, who brought in $24 million, and Pink, who earned $20 million. Miley and Selena Gomez didn't even make it on the list.
