A new story reveals a whole slew of celebrity salaries, including those of the T-Swizzle and the Biebs. So, who brought in more dough in 2012? Drumroll please…

Parade magazine released a list of Hollywood’s biggest breadwinners, and Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber are unsurprisingly right at the top!

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.

Bet Oprah and Britney Spears made more!!!
The Brits were brutal on Justin Bieber. Britain is but a sample of now most countries behave towards celebrities. If a country really wants to know how to treat a guest and each other for that matter, all they need to do is model themselves after Japan.
The truth about Justin Bieber: There is way more to JB than the celebrity everyone knows. Real people know JB for the humanitarian he is and his devotion to others less fortunate. JB is 19 years old. From a very young age (14) JB has devoted thousands of hours, of his personal time, supporting others less fortunate. JB has raised more than one hundred million dollars, to date, for global social issues. JB continues in these efforts daily. More of us need to know this about JB.
JB needs to listen to the right advice and focus on positive support from his family, friends, colleagues and peers. There is only 24 hours in a day. JB needs to use moderation and chisel out more “me time” to balance his life and sustain internal serenity.
Hate and anger are such a waste of energy. No one is perfect. We all have flaws.

And Taylor doesn’t?! she has just as many people than bieber does and she doesn’t disappoint fans by arriving to gigs 2 hours late or attack paparazzi or wear gas masks for no apparent reason….. Bieber is off his nut at the moment….. And I think Taylor appeals to a larger audience than bieber

I imagine Justin makes much more than Taylor totally, but his team is much bigger , he have some 150+ people who on tour with him, bodyguards, his manager, his manager bro and his charity and so on. There tonnes of other people who live off Justin. Justin Bieber is an industry by itself.

i read some were that taylor swift dosen’t spend alot of money like bieber. yes she bought homes but thats an investment. justin buys crap like toys,cars and drugs. i think at the end taylor will invest some money on the stock market like bono. or buy some sports team to get revenue.

Taylor is better

Posted at 3:41 PM on March 9, 2013  

The problem is not HOW MUCH money they make….it’s how spoiled they all get when they get the money. Both of them work hard for it…but why can’t everyday people get 60 million bucks a year from their daily work? They go in a commericial or take a picture for a magazine and b4 uk it they have like another couple thousand bucks….it’s ridiculous.

Taylor actually nets way more than most because of who manages them. Justen gives Scooter Braun over 30% of his income.Taylor owns 13 management and has a managemet team who work for her. 13management also manages her other companys. Taylor also owns a transport leasing co she owns over 40 luxury tour buses and afleet of tractor trailers she leases to music stars. She also owns airport hangers and wearhouses all around Nashville. She made over 150mill bet 2010 and 2012. Justen is Scooters puppet. Taylor has total control over her mgmt. All these facts are online at business and industry publications. Not at gossip blogs. Beyonce, JZ, Bono, Bonjovi, Tylor Swift, and Lady Gaga. Are the only artest ranked in the top 100 most powerful people in the industry. Because they are their own mgrs.She also owns a jet ( Taylor swift falcon 900 jet ck the tail # 989TS).

They are not in some competition over how many millions they make. They are pretty humble about how much they rack in. Taylor Swift has made 100 mllion before in a year. Justin was worth over 110 million already before last year began. Now focus on the homeless.
