Taylor Swift Vs. Justin Bieber: Who Makes More?

But the real question — all we really care about — is who made more money in 2012. The answer? Taylor — just by a hair!

See if you can swallow this — last year Tay made $57 million. That’s a whole lot of stacks! To put Taylor’s huge year into context, her 2012 salary was more than Channing TatumAnne Hathaway, and Sofia Vergara COMBINED! According to Parade, Taylor’s income is ranked third amongst women in the entertainment business, behind only Oprah and Britney Spears.

We might tease you at times, Taylor, but just keep doing what you’re doing — it’s working.

Tay Tay’s cool $57 million just barely edges out Justin’s 2012 total. Well, if you consider $2 million a small amount — Justin made $55 million last year.

Between touring, album sales, endorsements, and several other things, these two piled up the cash in 2012 and made it look easy! They may get made fun of from time to time, but Taylor and Justin could obviously crush us with their wallets if they wanted to.

Brad Pitt, Carly Rae Jepsen & More: Other Celebs’ Salaries

There were a few other notable celebs on Parade’s annual list. Brad Pitt reportedly made $35.5 million, despite only being in one movie! His Chanel commercials brought in $7 million alone!

The aforementioned Anne Hathaway proved that winning Oscars pays pretty well — she brought in approximately $10 million for her troubles.

Even Carly Rae Jepsen had a pretty good year — she rode “Call Me Maybe” all the way to the bank to the tune of $2 million!

Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go cry in our one bedroom apartments.
