The country singer of the lovable hits "Love Story" and "Sparks Fly" has just topped Forbes's "Highest Paid Under 30" list. She has earned around $57 million between May 2011 and May 2012. This is an astonishing feat to have completed at only 22-years-old! Swift beat 18-year-old Canadian sensation Justin Bieber, who came in at a close second with an approximated $55 million in earnings.
Other stars who made it on to the list include Rihanna with $53 million, Lady Gaga with $52 million, Katy Perry with $45 million and Adele with $35 million. Surprisingly, the only actors who made it to the list were the big three of THE TWILIGHT SAGA, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Rober Pattinson.
The reasons behind Swift's success must be her talent. Each of her three albums, 'Taylor Swift', 'Fearless' and 'Speak Now' has reached platinum level more than once. Her recent world tour was a huge hit and she also sang beautifully for THE HUNGER GAMES soundtrack.
More importantly, it also seems like this talented singer has got some exciting news to tell you all! On her official Facebook page, she wrote:
"Oh hey! I'm writing you from Nashville, where I just sat in a big room with a lot of people and made a lot of decisions about a lot of things happening very soon. And as vague as that sentence was, I think you know what it means. Stuff is about to happen. And I love you more than ever."
