Damn. It's good to be a famous power couple.

Much to our collective surprise, Queen Bey and Jay Z have been dethroned from their top spot as the world's most lucrative couple by none other than pop mega-star Taylor Swift and Scottish DJ Calvin Harris. The new, rarely-photographed couple's grand total clocks in at a whopping $146 million.

The ranking comes from the Forbes Celebrity 100, a listing of the 100 most powerful and highest paid celebs on the scene which will be released on Monday. Forbes notes that to add to their individual success and incomes, Swift and Harris both have extremely profitable brand endorsements with the likes of Diet Coke, Sony, and Giorgio Armani.

The number two spot is occupied by last year's reigning lovers, Beyoncé and Jay Z at $110.5 million combined. Third goes to Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton at $57 million. We're noticing a musical trend here. One question: Where are Brad and Angie hiding?!

Be honest: Are you as surprised as we were? Tell us in the comments!
