Taylor Swift is 2016's highest earning entertainer, according to the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, pulling in a tidy $170 million over the last 12 months.

Forbes said Swift added to her lead with advertising deals from Diet Coke, Keds, and Apple.

However, the pop singer still doesn't come close to last year's top celeb earner, Floyd Mayweather, who made $300 million in 2015 after his fight with Manny Pacquiao.

Swift's DJ ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris landed at No. 21 on the magazine's list with US$63 million. Had they stayed together, they would have been the top-earning Celebrity 100 couple, more than doubling Beyonce and Jay Z's $107.5 million total. She was on the number 8 spot on the list a year ago, with a gross income for $80 millions. "My eldest daughter has had her ultimate dream come true tonight & I can't say thankyou enough for giving my kids the awesome experience tonight of meeting the lovely Taylor Swift", one mom captioned this sweet photo.

Taylor Swift has been named Forbes magazine's top-earning celebrity of the previous year.

It probably comes as no surprise then that this was Swift's most expensively-ticketed tour yet. Many feel that for her to continue what is, in their opinion, obviously a childish animosity war against Taylor for petty reasons having occurred a long time ago, shows how immature Katy is in the long run.

Soccer seems to be a lucrative career as Ronaldo's rival, Lionel Messi, ranked eighth in the list with $81.5 million.

Kim Kardashian takes the cover of Forbes' July 26 issue, following her earnings of $45 million after developing just one mobile game. Kardashian has capitalized on mobile gaming, with 40% of her yearly paycheck coming from the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game that has been downloaded 45 million times and generated $160 million in revenue since its June 2014 launch.
