In fact, the 24-year-old country-pop star topped Billboard's 2014 Money Makers Rich List, making her the highest-paid musician over stars like Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Maroon 5 and Pink.

So just how much has Ms. Swift reportedly earned in this past year? Around $39.7 million, according to Billboard's calculations. Album sales and digital downloads of her music aren't the only things helping to fatten up Taylor's wallet. According to Billboard Boxscore, her Red tour brought in an estimated $30 million, thanks to tickets, merchandise and sponsorships from brands including Keds, Elizabeth Arden and Diet Coke.
