Taylor Swift is worth at least $360 million — see how the pop superstar makes and spends her ever-growing fortune


Taylor Swift is is a modern-day pop icon. 

At 15 years old, Swift was the youngest songwriter to ever sign with Sony. She now has 10 Grammys on her shelf, several tours under her belt (including one that generated a staggering quarter of a billion dollars), an endless list of chart-topping songs and albums, and a beloved fan base who dub themselves "Swifties."

Throughout her 15-year career, the pop superstar has earned 29 AMAs, making her the artist with the most AMA wins ever. More recently, Swift accepted Billboard's Woman of the Decade award.

Such success makes Swift one of the world's highest-paid celebrities and one of the richest female singers. She has an estimated net worth of $360 million — and that's not including the final earnings from her 2018 Reputation Stadium Tour, which was the highest-grossing tour in US history.

Swift has been strategic and generous with her money, investing in a sprawling real-estate portfolio and often donating to causes she supports and people in need.

Below, see how Swift earns and spends her fortune.

In June 2019, Taylor Swift had an estimated net worth of $360 million, which has likely grown due to her music, merchandise, and endorsements.

Swift has had a long-term partnership with Diet Coke since 2013, which has involved her chatting about her love for the drink in a "Bon Appetit" interview and holding the drink while on camera.

Adele and Madonna, who have comparable fan bases to Swift, didn't put as much effort into brand partnerships and touring as Swift did in 2016 — and only made half of her paycheck, at $80.5 million and $76.5 million respectively, according to Quartz.

In fact, aside from brand partnerships and endorsements, touring is Swift's biggest money maker. Her 1989 tour grossed more than $250 million in 2015.

She earned even more than that during her Reputation Stadium Tour in 2018. The first five shows alone earned $54 million in sales — that's $10.8 million per show.

But that's nothing compared to the estimated $40 million worth of property Swift owns in New York City on the same block in Tribeca. That includes a 8,309-square-foot large duplex penthouse and a four-story townhouse.

Swift needs a way to travel among all these homes, and she's rumored to own two Dassault private jets. There's no word on how much she paid for them, but depending on the model, they can be worth up to $58 million each.

Swift can also use her jet to head out of the country for vacation. She spent the Fourth of July in Turks and Caicos with her boyfriend Joe Alwyn and previously took a trip to an undisclosed tropical island with former boyfriend Calvin Harris.

She's also donated to various GoFundMe campaigns, including $10,000 toward a service dog for an autistic boy and $50,000 to her backup dancer's nephew, who was battling cancer.

And then there are the two famous checks she wrote for $1,989 — an ode to her best-selling album — sent to two fans to pay a student loan and to donate to a dance marathon benefit.

She also helps out her fellow pop stars, giving Kesha $250,000 to help with legal fees during her lawsuit against a music producer.
