You need to calm down, Tay Tay!

The country-turned-pop singer has once against showcased her music influence as she tops the Forbes' annual list of the highest-paid celebrities.

Following the insane success of her Reputation stadium tour, the singer has reportedly earned -wait for it- $185 MILLION dollars in June of 2018!

Just to compare how swift her earning has climbed up since her last appearance on the Forbes' list, her pre-tax earnings were calculated to be a $170 million back in 2016. A whopping $15 million increase in just two years.

Okay girl, we see you.

Kanye West, her long-time rival since the infamous VMAs moment in 2009 when he openly interrupts Swift moments before she receives her award, also appears on the Forbes' list.

The rapper slash entrepreneur took over the No. 3 spot, after being absent for four-years, with earnings at $150 million, driven mainly by his sough-after Yeezys sneaker line.

His hiatus on the list might have been because of his $53 million debt which he publicly announced on Twitter in 2016.

The rapper made headlines when he practically begged Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Twitter to invest a billion dollars into his "ideas.' Yikes.

Anyways, back to the Swift.

Taylor's fans, or Swifties, as they like to call themselves shared their amazement to the unexpected news, especially after media personality and businesswoman Kylie Jenner was announced as the youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes' early this year.

With the exciting announcement of her new album 'Lover' due for release next month, it's likely that Swift will get even bigger. The singer also just recently bought her old record label Big Machine and renamed it as Republic Records.

Are you excited to hear new music from the hitmaker queen?
