Taylor Swift is a Billionaire

[QUOTE]Swift’s achievement is all the more noteworthy, Forbes says, because last October she accomplished “a feat no other musician had before: she became a billionaire strictly off of earnings from her music and performances.”

That's more than Trump can honestly say.

Tyler Perry was on the list since last year. Why didn’t DL tell me?

There is zero doubt Madonna became a billionaire solely through her earnings in music. Madonna doesn’t disclose her finances and it drives Forbes insane.

Release the same album with different covers and slight changes to songs and make a billion! Her fans are young and stupid.

Madonna is no where near a billionaire.

At one point Madonna was well over 500 million. And if she has decent bankers she could easily have doubled that with the stock market in the last 15 years.

Uh o get em Tay. Trump is shooketh.

Taylor Swift needs to come out and endorse Biden in a BIG WAY--and campaign for him. Maybe not right now, but definitely as the election gets closer.

by Anonymousreply 12April 3, 2024 2:35 AM

There is ample time for that, R12. Joe doesn’t need her right now. Joe doesn’t need anyone or anything right now, in fact. The campaign is in cruise control through summer.

But there will come a time when he needs her, and she will be there for him.

If you don’t think Madonna is a billionaire you’re an idiot. She’s made over a billion in concert sales alone of which she gets 80% of the revenue and 50/50 in merch. Then she’s sold (not streamed) 400 million records.

Yaaas teacake! Mizz Swift got dem haters straight quaking in theys Crox. And that’s on point blank periodt!

Queen TaySwiff makes Flopyoncé look like a gutter rat.

A trillion wouldn't mean she isn't a talentless, cunning, boring bitch.

Don't forget Taylor also put in a lot of hard work dating every second gay guy in Hollywood to keep up the clicks between albums. Credit where credit is due.

R15 What we not gon do is diss Queen Bey. That’s what we NOT gon do. Try the buffoonery and mockery elsewhere.

R14 = Madonna’s black babies she uses for publicity.

Formulaic, R22. But that’s partly what makes her so successful.

Well, as billionaires go, I’ll take Swift every time over the ones who are bankrolling pro-Trump propaganda.

The first statement may be true, but the latter does not compute

Yawn...

No surprises with this one. You can already tell she is going to look just the same when she is 70. Same short skirts, same flowing hair with bangs, same red lippy. She'll be hunched over and saggy, but otherwise just the same.

by Anonymousreply 30April 3, 2024 3:02 PM

She'll be a recluse in a remote villa in Switzerland, more like. Never photographed, rarely seen.

Yet she still can't afford singing lessons.

by Anonymousreply 33April 3, 2024 3:39 PM

r33 that's what makes this more disgusting. She is a corporation, not an artist. But she is a rich blond woman who sings about rich blond women's issues. They live in a bubble where they don't have to be concerned about the issues of today. She's an indication of how vapid and self-absorbed the world has become. And boy did it open my eyes to the music industry. The fact that they let those multiple album covers be counted is bullshit! And the Grammies just recently ruling that artists can't use money to coerce votes! People say music is dreadful now because there are no great artist. I say it's because the industry shoves the mediocre and generic out to the world and overlooks real talent.

by Anonymousreply 34April 3, 2024 7:35 PM

I gather her two more low-key albums, "Folklore" and "Midnights," showed a slightly more interesting side of her (cynics might disagree), but I'm not part of her target audience, so her music "does not speak to me" (as Sting once said about Bruce Springsteen).

by Anonymousreply 35April 3, 2024 7:45 PM

She only got that rich using the most underhanded practices. Madonna, Janey, didn't do that to make sales. To think she is closing in on having the most sales by a female artist is a shame. Awards, money and honors are all that motivates her. I fucking hate everything she is.
