Associated Press Associated Press 12/07/2016

There's no Blank Space in Taylor Swift's bank account.

The US singer-songwriter tops Forbes' annual list of the 100 highest paid celebrities with $US170 million ($A225.67 million).

Swift is ahead of fellow chart-topping pop stars Adele at No.9 with $US80.5 million ($A106.86 million), Madonna at No.12 with $US76.5 million, Rihanna at No.13 with $US75 million and Katy Perry at No. 63 with $US41 million.

The Shake It Off crooner's star-studded 1989 World Tour earned more than $US200 million last year.

Swift's DJ ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris landed at No.21 on the magazine's list with $US63 million.

Other top 10 earners included boy band One Direction at No.2 with $US110 million, actor-comedian Kevin Hart at No.6 with $US87.5 million and self-proclaimed "king of media" Howard Stern at No.7 with $US85 million.

Kim Kardashian is featured on the magazine's cover. She's No.42 on the list with $US51 million. Forbes says 40 per cent of her pay cheque this year came from her mobile game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.

The game's maker, Glu Mobile, is scheduled to release an app starring Swift later this year.
