Forbes has released their annual figures for the highest paid woman in music for 2018 and Katy Perry has topped the list!
According to Forbes, the 34-year-old earned $83 million before tax over the last 12 months, which is largely down to her mega ‘Witness’ world tour.
Katy’s role as a judge on American Idol also reportedly earned her another $20 million.
Girl made bank!
In second place is Taylor Swift, who banked $80 million thanks to her album Reputation.
We were a little surprised that Tay Tay didn’t take out the top spot but according to Forbes, the 28-year-old would have landed at number one had more of her live tour dates fallen within the 12-month period.
