Katy Perry Beats Taylor Swift, Tops Forbes' 2015 List of World's Highest-Paid Musicians

You won't catch Katy Perry dancing along with Taylor Swift s 1989 World Tour is grossing $4 million per city which makes her "a top contender for the No. 1 spot on our list next year.

Swift's boyfriend Calvin Harris is doing OK himself on the financial department. Although the Scottish DJ/Armani model doesn't earn quite as much as the pop star, he raked in an estimated $66 million last year, putting him at No. 6 on Forbes' list.

Almost all the musicians on the list earned a significant chunk of change from their non-musical endorsements. Perry, for example, has deals with Claire's, Coty and Covergirl; Swift is the face of multiple campaigns as well, including Keds and Diet Coke.

Other artists who qualified for Forbes' list include Justin Timberlake ($63.5 million) and Diddy ($60 million). For the complete list and financial breakdown of World's Highest Paid Musicians of 2015, visit
