Despite not winning a Grammy award this 2014, it certainly hasn't stopped the cash from rolling in for country crooner, Taylor Swift. Billboard recently released their annual money maker rich list and guess who's at the top? Swift managed to beat the likes of Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake. Check out the who else made it to the top ten here.
In Hollywood, triple threat artists, who can sing, act and dance at the same time, are those that earn the most amount of money. In this light, it is obvious Taylor Swift is one triple threat having starred in a film back in 2013 and not to mention her dancing and singing acts during her tours and event performances. This is why she's been awarded the number one spot on Billboard's Money Makers rich list.
The "Red" singer earned a whopping amount of $39,699,575.60. Aside from the money earned from album sales and tours, Swift earned from sponsorships from Elizabeth Arden, Keds and Diet Coke. Though this is not the first time the country crooner has topped the list, back in 2012 she had also ranked first place raking in $35,719,902.
The blonde beauty managed to beat music mogul Beyoncé, another country music star Kenny Chesney, Justin Timberlake, Bon Jovi, Maroon 5 and a few more. Deeper down the list, pop singers Justin Bieber and One Direction also earn a spot. The top ten of Billboard's Money Makers rich list is as follows:
