Pop star Taylor Swift Is Officially a Billionaire

Taylor Swift has yet another milestone to add to her endless list of accomplishments as she’s now officially a billionaire.

The superstar was included on Forbes World’s Billionaires List published this week, and Swift amassed an estimated $1.1 billion fortune this year, according to the publication. She becomes one of 265 newcomers to feature on Forbes’ list this year.

The revenue is based on earnings from her record-breaking Eras tour and the value of her music catalog, as well as her real estate portfolio. Per Forbes, Swift is the first musician to hit ten figures in fortune solely based on songs and performances.

The Eras tour, a 44-plus song mega-concert that stretched to nearly three and a half hours, generated more than $700m in ticket sales in the US alone, according to Bloomberg; that’s before including the 89-date international leg.

The richest person on the planet is Bernard Arnault, the majority owner of the luxury goods conglomerate LVMH, whose fortune, according to Forbes, increased by 10% to $233bn. Elon Musk is in second place with $195bn, an 8% increase on last year.
