Forbes Magazine's List Of Highest Earning Celebrities Under The Age Of 30

Top earner: Taylor Swift led the Forbes Magazine list of the highest celebrity earners under the age of 30
Taylor Swift has topped Forbes Magazine's list of the highest paid celebrities under the age of 30, earning a cool $57 million in the last year.
The 22-year-old star's riches are largely due to the success of her albums and tours, with CDs Taylor Swift, Fearless and Speak Now going platinum at least four times.

The award-winning singer's concerts grossed around $1 million per night for 65 dates last year and she also profits from endorsing goods like CoverGirl cosmetics, according to Forbes, who measured the stars' estimated earnings between May 2011 and May 2012. 
Swift even beat out Justin Bieber who is the only male celebrity in the top five.

The 18-year-old Canadian singer made $55 million from record sales, concerts, and endorsements.
Author of the Forbes list Dorothy Pomerantz, told the
New York Daily News that Swift embodies 'Youth, innocence and the struggle of being a teen' while third-placed Rihanna is the 'edgy bad girl' and Adele is all about 'heartfelt' vocals.

She said: 'We’re seeing this confluence of talented young female stars. They have such distinct personalities and sounds, they can all co-exist without cannibalising each other.'
The rest of the top five are filled out by female singers with Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry taking third, fourth and fifth places.

Rihanna, 24, earned her estimated $53 million from a 85 date tour, hit album Talk That Talk and promoting Vita Coco coconut water and Nivea lotion.
Ranking fourth, 26-year-old Lady Gaga earned $52 million last year, a lower place than previously, due to her 'lack of touring' before the May 2011 deadline, according to the magazine.
However, she still rakes in cash from her latest album Born This Way as well as her old hits.
