It’s been a rough week for Taylor Swift, as her 15-month relationship with Scottish DJ Calvin Harris came to an abrupt end. Luckily for Swift, she has a lot of options when it comes to mending her broken heart. There are her beloved cats, Olivia and Meredith; her expansive squad of BFFs; and, of course, her $250 million fortune.
At just 26, Swift is the youngest women on Forbes’s second annual list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women. It’s been quite the year for Swift, whose latest album, 1989, has sold 10 million copies since its 2014 release. But that’s not why Billboard recently named Swift the highest-paid musician of 2015. Swift made most of her money off of her juggernaut 1989 world tour, which featured a coterie of guest stars made up of Swift’s famous friends and grossed a quarter of a billion dollars, making it the highest-grossing tour of the year.
Swift also signed a high-profile deal with Apple—if you haven’t seen her treadmill ad yet, well, you should—and she continues to pull in checks from lucrative endorsement deals with major brands like Diet Coke and Elizabeth Arden. In other words, it’s a good time to be Taylor Swift.
