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!!!

no title

One person's success does NOT mean another's failure. But come on — these kids make the rest of Hollywood look bad!

Forbes released this year's list of the highest earning celebs under 30, and its top earner will be no surprise to anyone: Taylor Swift!

Not only is the Blank Space singer the highest paid woman in music, she's also the highest paid human under the age of 30, raking in an intimidating $170 million in just one year!

Aside from her mega-successful 1989 World Tour, Tay earned some major dough from her many endorsement deals with brands like Diet Coke, Keds, and Apple.

The 26-year-old beat second place's One Direction by $60 million (or by about two Ed Sheerans, who earned just over $30 million), though the popular boy band would have to split their $110 million earnings four ways.

Other stars in the top 10 include Justin Bieber, Rihanna, The Weeknd, and Adele.

Nestled in the list of mostly professional athletes — like Cam Newton and Kevin Durant — is highest paid actress Jennifer Lawrence, who took the no. 12 spot with $46 million.

What an impressive (and frustratingly young) bunch! Ch-ch-check out the full list (below)!

no title

May the best better woman win!

It may seem as though Taylor Swift has been the most powerful voice in music for a while now… but this is actually her first year officially on top.

Forbes just released their annual list of the Top 10 Highest Paid Female Musicians in the world on Wednesday — and TayTay's wildest dreams helped put her in first place with $170 MILLION!

Video: Taylor Returns To The CMA Awards To Crown Entertainer Of The Year!

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??

Bazinga! The Big Bang Theory Boys Are Forbes' FOUR Highest Paid TV Actors Of 2016! See How Much They Made AND Who Else Made The Cut!

no title

Jim Parsons has to say a ton of science-y words he can't pronounce playing Sheldon Cooper every week on The Big Bang Theory, but never say he wasn't appropriately compensated!

The Emmy-winner managed to top Forbes' list of highest-paid TV actors for 2016 for another consecutive year, taking in a cool $25.5 million earnings for playing the neurotic scientist on the CBS comedy.

But Parsons wasn't the only BBT star to make the list — calculated from June 1, 2015 to June 1, 2016 — as the next three spots were taken by three fellow cast members.

Johnny Galecki took second with $24 million, Simon Helberg took third with $22.5 mil, and Kunal Nayyar landed fourth place with $22 mil!

The Big Bang Theory isn't just a money maker for the men, as Kaley Cuoco landed the no. 2 spot on Forbes' highest paid TV actresses list — earning $24.5 million.

The rest of the top male earners aren't that surprising. Other names include The X-Files star David Duchovny, Castle lead Nathan Fillion, and the four funny men of Modern Family!

Though, like always, some names are a bit surprising to see on the list. (What are you doing here, Ray Romano?)

Ch-ch-check out the full list (below) to see the 15 top male earners in television!

What Gender Pay Gap? Jennifer Lawrence Is This Year's Highest-Paid Oscar Nominee!

no title

Sorry, boys!

Last year, Jennifer Lawrence sparked an ongoing discussion on Hollywood's gender pay gap after penning a powerful essay on the subject on Lenny Letter.

And while this year's Oscars is expected to shine a light on the notable lack of minority representation in its nominees, J.Law is the ray of hope that the entertainment biz is starting to make a positive shift in pay equality.

The actress was nominated for Best Lead Actress playing the titular role in David O. Russell's Joy, which makes Lawrence the youngest person to rack up four Academy Award nominations — but that's not all she's accomplished!
