Singer Taylor Swift has been named the highest-paid celebrity of 2016 by Forbes. The magazine has released its annual Celebrity 100 list, which features the 26-year-old at the top spot, thanks to the $170 million she earned from June 2015 to June 2016, reports aceshowbiz. Most of her money came from her star-studded “1989” tour, which smashed rock band The Rolling Stones’ North American touring record as it grossed more than $200 million.
