He gave her a run for her money… and didn't even come close!

It's no secret that Taylor Swift is easily the most famous musician on the planet, but we're happy to see that she also has the business acumen to back up that fame.

The 26-year-old has already topped two of Forbes' End of the Year lists so far in 2016 — highest paid female in music and highest paid celeb under 30 — but she can officially add another superlative to her résumé: Highest paid musician!!!

Like most of us, Jimmy Kimmel has a pretty good feeling this country is going to hell.

But thanks to a star-studded musical PSA, we can still save ourselves from the fiery pits of the underworld… by helping people with AIDS!

On Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late night host teamed up with Bono's (RED) campaign for the second year in a row to raise awareness and money to help fight AIDS, and he assembled an all-star lineup of A-listers to help get out the message!

A tuxedo-clad Julia Roberts, Channing Tatum, Kristen Bell, and Neil Patrick Harris joined Kimmel in singing a special song for the charity episode which also featured Halsey, DJ Khaled, and The Killers' Brandon Flowers.

The faux-Christmas tune was chock-full of bits, including Channing and NPH silently tap dancing on a rug so no one could hear and Bono himself playing the role of Satan as he emerged from a hellish bathtub.

It's hard to imagine hell not being a bunch of celebrities singing self-aware songs about how they should have helped the less fortunate more! Ha!

Ch-ch-check out the musical moment (below) to see how you can avoid burning in hell!

According to Taggart, Bono "rolled up to our studio, all by himself" and:

"played us some new U2 music. We played him some of our new stuff, and with this one song, he was like, 'That's great – will you send that to me?' Which was so sick."'

Sick indeed!

Bono is truly in awe of Jennifer Lawrence!

In a candid Facebook Live Q&A for his ONE organization this past Tuesday, the singer made mention of Jennifer and her recent comments about the gender pay gap in Hollywood. Considering the icon is a big champion of gender equality himself, it's no surprise he praised the actress for her amazing work concerning the issue.

Speaking on his gender equality philosophy and how Lawrence's past comments have shaped the entertainment industry, Bono explained:

"Gender equality is at the center of any movement that holds fairness, freedom, and justice as its core values. In Hollywood, Jennifer Lawrence, speaking about how actors are paid. Women have this incredible thing – bond I think you have. More than men. Women have a great sense of solidarity. It's women saying they will not have it anymore. They will not take the bad deal.”

Wow! What high praise from the singer!
