Taylor Swift on Track to Make 9 Figures This Year
Taylor Swift is the biggest name on the planet and she's due an even bigger paycheck by 2016.
Taylor Swift is easily living in the highlight of her life. Never has she commanded such attention from the world, nor has she been so popular. And she's definitely going to capitalize on it. According to Forbes, the 1989 World Tour has Taylor on track to make $100 million this year. Easily her best financial year yet.
Her tour has 75 dates around the globe. Recently she brought in about $2.5 million per tour stop, and most of those stops were not the big stadiums. Do the math and that's nine figures.
And it's a good thing because Taylor spent a pretty penny on her Bad Blood music video.
Rumor has it that Taylor went on a bit of a shopping spree for the costumes used in Bad Blood. Where you ask? A sex shop in Los Angeles. Page Six reports that Taylor spent $13,000 on clothes for the video. Her flesh-colored latex dress was $235, while the black latex blouse Selena Gomez wears costs $360.
A small investment toward the $100 million paycheck.
