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.
