The Highest Paid Female Celebrity Is…

The Taylor Swift versus Katy Perry feud just got more interesting. Although Swift is one half of the world’s highest paid celebrity couple, Perry isn’t sweating it – she’s topping Forbes‘  list as 2015’s highest-paid female celebrity in the world with a cool $135 million.
Perry’s high performance this year was due mostly to her Prismatic World Tour, which grossed more than $2 million per city over the course of 126 shows—75 of them were overseas. She reportedly also drew in $20 per head in merchandise sales.
Endorsement deals don’t hurt either. Perry works with brands like Coty, Claire’s, and Covergirl, which also helped her score big this year.
And with a new Perry-themed mobile game due out this fall, she’s bound to score big next year too.
Taylor Swift probably isn’t losing much sleep. She’s the 8th highest paid celebrity of the past year with a reported $80 million.
Other female celebrities who made the list include Lady Gaga (#25), Beyonce (#29), Kim Kardashian (#33), Jennifer Lawrence (#34) and Ellen DeGeneres (#12).
Although Katy takes the #1 spot for women, Perry is third on the list overall. She was beat out by boxer Floyd Mayweather earning the top spot on the list with $300 million, followed by Manny Pacquiao with $160 million.
First non-boxer spot, oh yeah!
