Taylor Swift becomes a billionaire with music alone
Taylor Swift has done something rare: she's managed to become a billionaire almost entirely from music, according to Bloomberg.
Bloomberg says its analysis is conservative and based only on assets and earnings that can be confirmed or tracked by publicly available figures.
However, the analysis took into account the estimated value of Swift's music catalog and five houses, and revenue from music sales, concert tickets and streaming deals.
Here's how her income stacks up:
About $400 million from music released since 2019.
$370 million from ticket sales
$120 million from Spotify and YouTube
Home value $110 million
$80 million from music sales
Other musicians who have reached billionaire status include Rihanna, who was named the world's richest musician last year, as well as Jay-Z and Ye, formerly known as Kanye West.
