2015 has been a major year for a number of female artists, but which ladies have been listed as the Top 5 highest earning musicians this year? 


To make things just that little bit extra awkward between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, it’s been announced that the ‘This Is How We Do’ singer has taken the title of top-earning woman in music this year! 

The Top 5 (US dollars): 

1. Katy Perry - $135 million 

2. Taylor Swift - $80 million 

3. Fleetwood Mac (Stevie Nicks & Christine McVie) - $59.5 million 

4. Lady Gaga - $59 million 

5. Beyoncè - $54.5 million 

Forbes have reported that Katy’s hugely successful world tour “grossed more than $2M per city over the course of 126 shows”. Add on a few sponsorship deals like Covergirl and you’ve got yourself a top spot.
