Katy Perry is living her teenage dream after topping Forbes' list of the highest-paid women
The singer rose to the occasion this year to beat out Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, who came in second and third place respectively, for the top spot on the annual report. According to Forbes, Katy earned just about $3 million more in 2018 than T-Swift, and $20 million more than the Queen Bey herself.
Perry accomplished this major feat by performing in 80 shows as part of Witness: The Tour, bringing in nearly a million dollars for every performance. Not to mention her recent role as a judge on American Idol and so much more. .
Rounding out the list of high-earning female performers in order is Pink ($52 million), Lady Gaga ($50 million), Jennifer Lopez ($47 million), Rihanna ($37.5 million), Helene Fischer ($32 million), Céline Dion ($31 million) and Britney Spears ($30 million). Musicians like Lady Gaga and Rihanna have been noticeably absent from the music world, instead opting to pursue new ventures like lingerie lines and blockbuster films, but continue to pull in the big bucks.
Congratulations to Katy on yet another impressive achievement!
