Katy Perry Revealed As The Highest-Paid Female Celebrity

(Radio.com) Katy Perry definitely doesn't have to worry about paying her rent, that's for sure. According to Forbes, Perry is 2015's highest-paid female celebrity in the world earning $135 million.

Perry's high performance this year was due mostly to her Prismatic World Tour, which grossed more than $2 million per city over the course of 126 shows--75 of them were overseas. She reportedly also drew in $20 per head in merchandise sales. That's a lot of Katy Perry shirts.

Her deals with brands like Coty, Claire's and Covergirl also helped her score big this year. And with a new Perry-themed mobile game due out this fall, she's bound to score big next year too.

Taylor Swift is the 8th highest paid celebrity with a reported $80 million. She's also part of the highest-paid couple with her new boyfriend Calvin Harris, beating out Beyonce and Jay Z. See who else made the list here.
