LOS ANGELES - There's no "Blank Space" in Taylor Swift's bank account.

The singer-songwriter tops Forbes' annual list of the 100 highest-paid celebrities with $170 million.

Swift is ahead of fellow chart-topping pop stars Adele at No. 9 with $80.5 million, Madonna at No. 12 with $76.5 million, Rihanna at No. 13 with $75 million and Katy Perry at No. 63 with $41 million.

The "Shake It Off" crooner's star-studded "1989 World Tour" earned more than $200 million last year.

Swift's DJ ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris landed at No. 21 on the magazine's list with $63 million.

Other top 10 earners included boy band One Direction at No. 2 with $110 million, actor-comedian Kevin Hart at No. 6 with $87.5 million and self-proclaimed "king of media" Howard Stern at No. 7 with $85 million.

Kim Kardashian is featured on the magazine's cover. She's No. 42 on the list with $51 million. Forbes says 40 per cent of her paycheque this year came from her mobile game "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood."

The game's maker, Glu Mobile, is scheduled to release an app starring Swift later this year.
