This person is raking in dollars. Not a man, but a baller. She's Taylor Swift.
Forbes has named the singer as the highest-paid female entertainer in 2022. In fact, she is the only woman on the magazine's list of the World's 10 Highest-Paid Entertainers.
None of this comes as a surprise given Swift has seen this film before and liked the ending: making it on the list six times already.

Swift earned $92 million (over P5 billion) last year through combined income streams, including physical record sales, streaming, digital downloads, as well as licensing and sync. Even more impressive is that she earned most of that figure from the music she already released in previous years, with her back catalog comprising an estimated 70% of her income.
"Crashing Ticketmaster with insane demand for her Midnights tour in November suggests an even bigger 2023 for her, as she’ll be on the road for 52 nights across the U.S. with a potential nine-figure payout as a result," Forbes predicts.
It cited her recent track record, such as becoming the first artist ever to simultaneously claim the top ten spots on the Billboard Hot 100 and having 14 million of her fans all trying to buy tickets at once.
Active since 2004, Swift has sold over 200 million records worldwide. She is the one of best-selling musicians in history, aside from being one of the most decorated with 12 Grammy Awards that include three Album of the Year trophies.
