Katy Perry has started off 2017 with a bang, as she has already created a buzz at the Grammy's with her performance, followed by releasing her single "Chained To The Rhythm." Katy Perry's new single has smashed the most first-day streamed music by a female singer on Spotify.
Eventhough Perry makes it looks easy, she has had to work really hard to reach where she is in her career right now. She tirelessly travels the world performing endless concerts and promoting her albums every year. The "Rise" singer's net worth is estimated to stand at an impressive $280 million at the moment, Celebrity Net Worth reported.
But that does not mean that it is not skyrocketing every minute. According to Hollywood Take, from June 2014 to June 2015 alone, Perry made $135 million by playing at 124 concerts in 27 countries.
With endorsements like Covergirl and Pop Chips brand chipping in her profits, Perry has never been a bigger brand in the music industry. She also grabbed the limelight through her unconditional support of Hillary Clinton throughout the 2016 US Elections.
Nevertheless, Katy Perry still has a long way to go before she has even hope to catch up to the enormous empire built by Beyonce. Queen Bae's net worth stands at a whopping $450 million, which should not come as a surprise since all of her last six albums soared to the number one spot in just the blink of an eye.
In addition to that, she has numerous endorsement contracts with some of the biggest brands in the world and her own Ivy Park clothing line. Investing in her husband Jay Z's Tidal, the music streaming app has also added millions to her name.
If anyone comes close to making it to the top, which is currently concurred by Beyonce, it is Taylor Swift. Even though she is still young and has many years of music-making left ahead of her, her net worth has already reached to an unbelievable $360 million. According to experts, her decision to transition from country music to pop was a big contributing factor in the surge in her popularity and ultimately, album profits. In 2016, she was named the highest paid celebrity by Forbes.
