Queen Bey is ruling strong...


Beyonce has been named as the highest paid female musician of 2017, after knocking Taylor Swift from the top spot.

According to Forbes, the singer earned a staggering £79 million from both record sales and her massive ‘Formation’ world tour, which concluded in October 2016.

The second spot, meanwhile, was taken by Adele who raked in £52 million with her first full tour since 2011.

Taylor Swift, meanwhile, slipped down the ranks to third after pulling in £33 million pre-tax from June 2016 to June 2017.

However, she is expected to grab the top spot once more next year after latest album Reputation was released earlier this month.

You can see the whole top 10 below.

  1. Beyonce – £79 million
  2. Adele – £52 million
  3. Taylor Swift – £33 million
  4. Celine Dion – £31 million
  5. Jennifer Lopez – £28 million
  6. Dolly Parton  – £27.9 million
  7. Rihanna – £27 million
  8. Britney Spears – £25 million

  10. Barbra Streisand – £22 million

Swift is also scheduled to return to the UK next month for a huge appearance at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball, alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran and Stefflon Don.

She recently promoted new record Reputation as she appeared as the musical guest on SNL earlier this month.

Swift performed ‘…Ready For It’ first, before delivering a more acoustic performance of the song ‘Call It What You Want’ later in the episode.
