  • Pop singer Taylor Swift is the world's top-earning celebrity, according to an annual countdown of highest-paid stars.

    Forbes estimates the 29-year-old singer made $185m (£148m) in pre-tax earnings in the year beginning 1 June 2018.

    Swift last topped Forbes' Celebrity 100 in 2016, when her pre-tax earnings were calculated to be $170m (£136m).
