Whatever bad blood Taylor Swift may have with former associates, her credit is certainly good. She also switched labels and signed a new deal with Universal that accounts for more of that revenue.
An interesting fact about this list is that Akshay has been beaten by everyone's favourite Robert Downey Jr. aka Iron Man by an earnings of $1 million.
It's been a big year for Taylor Swift, who is coming off a major stadium tour and just released a new hit single, "You Need to Calm Down", from her upcoming album Lover, due out August 23.
Swift's Reputation tour brought in $266.1 million in the US, making it the highest-grossing tour ever, according to Billboard.
This isn't the first time Swift has topped Forbes's list of highest-earning stars. Kim Kardashian ranks at no. 26 with a yearly income of $72 million. The song has spawned an empire that now includes a chain of restaurants all over the world, as well as apparel, footwear and home decor, tequila and margarita mix, earning him $50 million in 12 months.
Earlier this year, Jenner earned a place on Forbes' list of the world's richest self-made women thanks to an estimated net worth of around $1 billion (£800m).
The Eagles features in the top 10, whilst radio and television personality Howard Stern, "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling, and actor Dwayne Johnson all make the top 15. West re-entered the list after 4 years, mostly owing to his Yeezy sneaker line. The oldest person on the list is Beatles' legend Sir Paul McCartney, 77-years-old, at number 62 with $48 million.
