There's no denying that Taylor Swift is one talented 22 year old, and making it to #1 on Billboard's Top 40 Money Makers 2012 list solidifies that. After writing all 14 tracks on her latest album Speak Now, she took her music on the road for the smash tour of the same name that swept through Asia, Europe and North America. The tour itself raked in a whopping $88.5 million in the United States alone, earning Swift $29.8 million along with revenue from album sales of 1.8 million units sold in the U.S., and of course, her songwriting royalties. All this hard work has made the pop-country superstar $35.7 million last year. She's gorgeous, talented, and super successful — talk about a triple threat.
