Katy Perry Beats Taylor Swift as Highest Earning Woman in Music — by a Huge Margin!.

NEW YORK: She didn’t make as many headlines, nor sell as many albums, but Katy Perry handily beat Taylor Swift to become the highest-earning woman in music this year, according to Forbes. Perry, 31, earned $135 million in the past 12 months, thanks to a huge worldwide “Prismatic” tour and endorsements deals with beauty companies like Coty and CoverGirl, Forbes estimated. Forbes announced its list of 2015’s highest-paid women in music Wednesday, and Perry led the lineup, raking in $135 million this year, with most of her sales coming from her Prismatic tour.

Swift, 25, was a distant second, with an estimated $80 million, despite some 8.6 million sales globally for her “1989” hit album and the start of a world tour. Perry’s latest album “Prism” has sold some four million worldwide since its release in 2013 and the “Roar” singer has been touring for most of the year. Nevertheless, the return of 1970s veterans Stevie Nicks and Christine McVeigh was seen as a key to the success of the band’s year-long tour “On With the Show,” Forbes said. She even took over Clinton’s Instagram account to declare her fandom and urge young people to vote. “I am proud of my position as a boss, as a person that runs my own company,” Forbes quoted Perry as saying in its Celebrity 100 cover story this summer. “I’m an entrepreneur. … I don’t want to shy away from it. Lady Gaga was ranked fourth with $59 million — a long way behind her 2011 peak of $90 million when she was grabbing headlines with outrageous stunts and costumes.

The Forbes list measures estimated pre-tax income from June 2014 to June 2015, and includes earnings from albums, touring, endorsements and other commercial deals. The band’s current tour “included 86 concerts during our scoring period; it also boasted a staggering secondary ticket price of over $300,” Forbes said. And Beyoncé’s earnings followed a similar pattern: Her tour last year with husband Jay Z grossed over $100 million, plus she had deals with Pepsi and L’Oréal, and her own Heat fragrance helped fill her coffers.

Forbes’ male top-earners in music, due in December, will likely top the women earners, but Forbes says at least some of the women are “competitive” with their male counterparts.
