Carrie Underwood
Twenty-one year-old Taylor Swift and 28 year-old Carrie Underwood were both ranked on Forbes’ Best Paid Celebrities Under 30 list this year. Taylor came in the top five with $45 million and Carrie hit the No. 19 slot with $15 million.
Other stars that stood along the line with them included Lady Gaga topping the list with $170 million, Justin Bieber, the youngest celebrity to make the list with $53 million; Miami Heat star LeBron James with $48 million and fourth place went to Roger Federer, a tennis star with $47 million. Katy Perry, Rihanna, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Miley Cyrus also made the list this year.
With Taylor leading in the top five, she seems to have made a permanent spot on Forbes lists. She has also been listed on their annual Celebrity 100, Highest Earning Women, Most Powerful Celebrities, and the Highest Earning Stars lists. But it’s not the money that keeps her going, she says it is the fans that make it all worth while.
“I feel like out of all the things that have happened to me in my life, [my fans] are the best thing that I’ve ever gotten to have,” says Taylor. “My relationship with them is everything to me.”
And her relationship with her fans continues as she travels for her Speak Now World Tour. While Carrie is spending the next several days in Australia promoting her new album Play On and her new film Soul Surfer. Then it’s back home to Nashville, Tenn. to work on a new album!
