Bad Blood? Katy Perry outearns Taylor Swift — for now.

Katy Perry, pictured at a Rock in Rio Music Festival performance in Brazil on September 27, 2015, still tops the pop list of high-earning women in music, according to a Forbes item released November 5, 2015 ©Tasso Marcelo (AFP/File) Swift enjoyed massive success with her album “1989,” which in October last year scored the biggest US debut in more than a decade, but she did not begin her tour until May, weeks before the end of Forbes’ reporting period.

The wealth magazine said Swift was on track to top the list next year as she was earning some $4 million in each city she performs, about twice the $2 million that Perry grossed on each stop of her year-and-a-half global tour that ended last month in Costa Rica. The “Blank Space” singer, who dominated headlines and stages across the country this year, is not 2015’s highest earning woman in music — her rival, , is. Other young pop divas including Lady Gaga and Beyonce made the Forbes list, but the number three rank went to the veteran rock outfit Fleetwood Mac, which features Stevie Nicks. According to Forbes, which compiles the annual roundup, the “Roar” singer, 31, earned a whopping $135 million this year, while Swift, 25, was the second highest earner, taking home $80 million. (Still nothing to scoff at!) Perry’s success is due in large part to her Prismatic World Tour, Forbes reports.

The band has enjoyed overwhelming interest during an ongoing global tour, which marked the return of fellow singer Christine McVie, who left the band in 1998.
