Katy Perry has been named Forbes magazine's highest paid woman in music in 2018, beating the likes of Taylor Swift and Rihanna to the title.
The 'Roar' hitmaker has topped the business publication's annual list with earnings of $83 million before tax over the 12 months from June to June, with the 80 dates of her huge 'Witness' world tour contributing the bulk of the cash receipts.
Meanwhile, Katy's role on the judging panel for 'American Idol' reportedly netted her a further $20 million.
The numbers are calculated using "pre-tax earnings from 1 June 2017, through 1 June 2018, before deducting fees for agents, managers, lawyers and estate executors".
Following Katy in second place on the list is Taylor Swift who banked $80 million over the year thanks to her hit album 'Reputation'.
