Forbes top paying celebrity list has made its way to the internet and minus the fact that it reminds us how broke we are, it’s cool to see which celebrity is working the hardest.
Taylor Swift’s income is the stuff of wildest dreams: the pop diva pulled in $170 million over the past year, giving her the No. 1 spot on the 2016 FORBES Celebrity 100 list.
So, why did Kim Kardashian make the cover?
While Forbes honored Swift with the top spot Monday, it also announced that reality television star would be featured on the cover of its magazine. Kardashian is pictured with the text “the new mobile moguls,” largely in reference to her highly successful mobile game that reportedly generated $160 million in revenue. Since it launched in June 2014, the game called “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” has been downloaded some 45 million times, Forbes reported. Kardashian made $51 million this past year, putting her at No. 42 on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list.
“I realized this is really going to be the next cycle of my career and this is what I want to focus on,” Kardashian told the magazine.

1. Taylor Swift ($170 million)
