It's hard to imagine the Oscars without its jaw-dropping ending!
Sadly, this meant the comedian couldn't close the show with
best better woman win!
Yeah, that's more than DOUBLE the next highest singer on the list… Adele!!
Of course, a majority of that money comes from 1989 World Tour ticket sales, but Taylor's ad campaigns, songwriting skills, and social media celeb status probably didn't hurt.
However, with TayTay rising to the top spot, that meant a dethroning for 2015's champ, Katy Perry — who fell from No. 1… FIVE spots all the way to No. 6!!!
So, who else made the list??
1. Taylor Swift — $170 million
2. Adele — $80.5 million
3. Madonna — $76.5 million
4. Rihanna — $75 million
5. Beyoncé — $54 million
6. Katy Perry — $41 million
7. Jennifer Lopez — $39.5 million
8. Britney Spears — $30.5 million
9. Shania Twain — $27.5 million
10. Céline Dion — $27 million
Did your fave make the cut??
