For years, Beyoncé and Jay Z have peaked at the top of Forbes’ highest-earning celebrity couples list, but guess what?! The Hollywood royals have met their match! Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are ranked 1st on this year’s list!
They may be young and they may have only started dating a few months ago, but Taylor Swift, 24, and Calvin Harris, 31, have just earned the #1 spot on Forbes Celebrity 100 list, which will officially be released Monday, June 29. Can you guess which couples took 2nd and 3rd place? Find out!
Tay and her hot new DJ boyfriend top the 2015 list with a whopping $146 million yearly income! On top of the income from her amazing music, Taylor rakes in the dough from endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Keds and Sony. Calvin is not only the worlds highest paid DJ, he also has some sweet endorsement deals with Giorgio Armani and Sol Republic headphones.
The dethroned couple, Beyoncé, 33, and Jay Z, 45, came in second place this year this earnings of $110.5 million. Ok, so they may not be #1 anymore like they were in 2013, but this pair still has no trouble paying their bills. The couple joined forces this year for their co-headlined On the Run tour, which was the fifth highest grossing music tour of 2014! We don’t see these two slowing down any time soon either.
Coming in at #3, Miranda Lambert, 31, and Blake Shelton, 39, earning a combined $57 million, each bringing in $28.5 million a piece. Miranda had an impressive year winning a handful of Academy of Country Music Awards and diving into some non-music related business ventures like her boutique Pink Pistol and winery Red55! Her hot hubby on the other hand played more than 40 solo gigs while serving as a coach/judge on the hit singing competition show, The Voice!
