Singer Taylor Swift has been named as the world's highest-paid celebrity with her earnings of $185 million over the past year, beating reality TV star Kylie Jenner, who ranked second on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. The 'Blank space' hitmaker had also topped on the list back in 2016, with $170 million earnings.
