Taylor Swift is Forbes' highest paid celebrity under 30, having earned an estimated $57 million from May 2011 to May 2012. Included in the sum are album sales, concert revenue and endorsements, as well as film revenue, profit participation and advertising work.
Swift's Speak Now tour was the primary getter of revenue, according to the mag, which estimates she made $1 million a night.
Justin Bieber, 18, was second on the list with $55 million, followed by Rihanna, 24, with $53 million. Lady Gaga, 26, last year's top earner, dropped to fourth place with $52 million (last year she made $90 million). Katy Perry, 27, closed out the top five with a cool $45 million.
Women accounted for six of the top ten spots on the list.
