You better watch out Queen Bey, it looks like there is a pop Princess coming to steal your crown. For today Taylor has knocked Beyonce off the topspot of the Billboard Money Makers Rich List having earnt a whopping £23,000,000 in the last year. Nope, you haven't read those numbers wrong that is TWENTY THREE MILLION.

Coming second on the list was Kenny Chesney (nope, us neither) and in at number three is none other than Justin Timberlake who netted a cool £18,000,000 - we know who we'll be asking to lend us a fiver before pay day. Beyonce came in at number six with £14,000,000 whih, to be fair, isn't half bad either.

So how did Taylor do it? Well, according to Billboard her huge success in 2013 was thanks to her six month Red Tour, her ability to flog a LOT of merchandise and her sponserships from Elizabeth Arden, Diet Coke and Keds. Here at Grazia we think these things might also have had something to do with it...
