Taylor Swift Made $57 Million Last Year

NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 22:  Taylor Swift performs onstage during the "Speak Now World Tour" at Madison Square Garden on November 22, 2011 in New York City. Taylor Swift wrapped up the North American leg of her SPEAK NOW WORLD TOUR with two sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden this week. In 2011, the tour played to capacity crowds in stadiums and arenas over 98 shows in 17 countries spanning three continents, and will continue in 2012 with shows Australia and New Zealand.

… which was enough to land her the top spot on Forbes's list of the "Highest Earning Celebrities Under 30." Justin Bieber is No. 2, with $55 million, Rihanna is No. 3 with $53 million, and Gaga and Katy Perry round out the top five with $52 and $45 million, respectively. That adds up to $262 million, which buys so many Jet Skis or whatever it is that young millionaires spend their money on.
