Move over Jay Z and Beyonce—there’s a new highest-paid celebrity couple.
Mega-pop star Taylor Swift and her new beau, singer/songwriter/producer/DJ Calvin Harris!
For the first time, Forbes Celebrity 100 list, which will officially be released Monday, June 29, is ranking top entertainers by annual income only. A mere three power couples make the list: Swift and Harris, Beyoncé and Jay Z, and country crooners Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.
Swift and Harris only recently confirmed their romance, but they are already beating out the hip-hop super couple on the money list, making a combined total of $146 million in 2014, according to editors at the finance magazine.
Meanwhile, the magazine estimated Jay Z and Beyonce's combined earnings to have been $110.5 million, much of which stemmed from their money-spinning On the Run tour, which was the fifth highest grossing excursion of last year.
Not only did Taylor have the best-selling record (1989) of 2014, but she also has endorsement deals with several companies, including Diet Coke, Keds and Sony. Calvin, 31, who happens to be the world’s highest-paid DJ, has a few deals of his own including Giorgio Armani and Sol Republic.
