Los Angeles | Singer Taylor Swift has topped a magazine’s annual list of the highest paid celebrity this year.

The 26-year-old Bad Blood hitmaker left behind heavyweights including Leonardo DiCaprio and Jay Z, reported Us magazine. Swift made an estimated USD 80 million last year, through her sold-out world tour and numerous business deals.

The pop star even has her own mobile game in the works, to be launched later this year. Lady Gaga also earned an impressive paycheck this past year, with an estimated USD 59 million in her account.

Record producer Jay Z raked in a still-impressive USD 56 million in a year full of various business ventures. DiCaprio, 41, who won his first Oscar for best actor in a leading role in The Revenant, made an estimated USD 29 million.
