Taylor Swift is the highest-paid celebrity of 2016, according to Forbes magazine officials.

The "Shake It Off" singer has earned $170 million, thanks largely to her 1989 World Tour, which grossed more than $200 million. Last year, she placed eighth with $80 million.

Coming in at number two are the members of boy band One Direction, who earned a collective $110 million.


Other entertainers featured in the top 10 include comedian/actor Kevin Hart, who comes in at six with $87.5 million, and U.S. radio host Howard Stern, who placed seventh with $85 million. Adele also appears at number nine with $80.5 million.

Kim Kardashian, who is featured on the magazine’s cover, pops up at number 42, with a $51 million fortune, thanks in part to her hugely successful mobile game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, which she launched in 2014.

She features on the front of the new Forbes magazine, and the reality TV star cannot contain her excitement.

“Such a tremendous honor to be on the cover of @forbes!” she writes on Twitter. “I never dreamed this would happen & (and I) know my (late) Dad (Robert Kardashian) would be proud.”

Kim ends her celebratory quote with the sarcastic hashtag, “#NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent.”

Meanwhile, Beyoncé and Jay Z have been named the highest paid couple on the list. The "Drunk in Love" singer comes in at number 34 with $54 million, while her rapper husband takes the 36th spot with $53.5 million, bringing the couple’s total to a staggering $107.5 million.
