Taylor Swift apparently has some pretty deep pockets.
The 22-year-old country star is at the top of Billboard's list of the 40 biggest "money makers" in music last year.
According to the report, Swift brought in more cash last year than fellow singers Adele, Britney Spears and Katy Perry combined.

Will Taylor Swift be the next singer to dedicate a song to Tim Tebow? There's a video going around that has some wondering if the country star and the pro football player are dating.
Celebuzz cited anonymous sources last week who said the two were awfully chatty at a pre-Oscars party, and there's now another report that Tebow and Swift shared a meal on Monday.
Clevver News claims that the two arrived together at an L.A. restaurant for dinner, after which Tebow walked Swift out.

Taylor Swift and Zac Efron are not a couple - they repeat: they're not a couple - but just because they don't have romantic feelings for one another doesn't mean they didn't put in quality time while making their animated movie, "The Lorax."
As the two co-stars revealed on "Ellen" Tuesday, Efron has picked up a few guitar-playing skills from Grammy-winning country singer/songwriter Swift.
"I got my first guitar lesson from Taylor," Efron told Ellen DeGeneres as Swift interjected, "he's really good at it, from like, one lesson. I taught him how to play 'Pumped Up Kicks' by Foster the People."

We never thought Taylor Swift could be controversial, but according to E! News, the singer’s ultra-glossy CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara ad has been yanked after it caught the attention of an ad industry watchdog group.
The offense? Excessive Photoshopping.
Procter & Gamble voluntarily pulled Taylor’s mascara print spot when it was flagged by the industry’s self-regulatory group, The National Advertising Division.

Some awards show winners take the podium and immediately unfurl scraps of paper with their acceptance speech scrawled across it, but not Taylor Swift.
When the 21-year-old country cutie was named Entertainer of the Year at Wednesday's 45th annual CMA Awards, she began reading names off her forearm, thanking everyone from Justin Bieber to Kenny Chesney to T.I. - 19 names in all, printed on her skin like a temporary tattoo.
"This is so amazing to win this for a second time," she told CNN a few moments later. "Winning that the first time [in 2009] was like the best thing that ever happened to me, and then to win it again is absolutely insane! I'm so excited."
