Taylor Swift, the twenty-five year old singing sensation who just can’t put a foot wrong, has become the music world’s highest-earning artist in 2015. According to the Sunday Express, her income to date this year is in the vicinity of $317 million: that’s over $1 million every day!
This figure includes income from her World Music Tour, endorsement deals with Elizabeth Arden and Coca-Cola, and her 1989 album. Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour has likely contributed a lot to that massive total, with 59 concerts in Europe, North America and Asia giving her an overall income of $173 million. According to International Business Times, ticket sales from three venues in North America alone accounted for $13.6 million in sales. Not bad for a 25-year-old. Anyone who knows Taylor Swift knows only too well that she deserves each and every success because, not only does she work very hard, she’s also one of the nicest people in show biz.

Media analyst, Mike Raia, comments on Taylor Swifts success to the Sunday Express.
“Right now, Taylor is untouchable. She is so far ahead of everyone else in the industry that she has become not only a powerhouse entertainer but also an important mover and shaker on the commercial side of the music business.”
Just to add another notch to Taylor’s belt, she has also ranked eighth highest on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list and 64th on its Most Powerful Women list for the year 2015.
Swift has become a very influential figure in the streaming music business. She issued an open letter to Apple in June, just weeks before Apple was about to launch its music streaming service, protesting against reports that Apple would not be paying royalties to songwriters and musicians during the three-month free trial period of the service.
Well, Now We Got Bad Blood
Poor Taylor Swift accidentally sliced her thumb whilst cooking in her kitchen, then took to Twitter to deliver a rather admirable Bad Blood joke. It seems that Swift is quite happy to laugh at herself, tweeting that “Band aids don’t fix kitchen knife related injuries,” referring, obviously, to the lyrics of her latest single. But, the show must go on; and, according to VH1, Taylor wrapped up her damaged finger for her Texas concert later that night.
