Taylor Swift is the most powerful female artist in the world, surpassing all other female musicians in Forbes’ ranking of the world’s five most powerful women.
Swift moved up from the 79th most powerful woman in the world last year to the fifth most powerful woman this year when Forbes provided an explanation for Swift’s title in its cover story.
According to the article, Swift has “never had more economic, cultural, and political clout 17 years into her remarkable career.” “She rose from No. 79 in 2022 to No. 5 this year in Forbes’ World’s Most Powerful Women, thanks to all of which.”
Swift is now the highest-ranked musician on the list and one of the few recording artists to become a billionaire through music alone thanks to her accomplishment.
Forbes went on to say that Beyonce’s success in the music industry is demonstrated by the success of her 2023 Eras tour, which was held concurrently with Beyonce’s tour and drew an enormous crowd.
Swift became a billionaire in October as a result of the Eras tour’s unprecedented success, according to Forbes. This made her one of the few music artists to reach the ten-figure mark, alongside celebrities like Jay-Z (net worth of $2.5 billion) and Rihanna ($1.4 billion).
Over the course of 66 U.S. gigs, the three and a half-hour concert retrospective of her career, known as the Eras tour, has brought in close to $850 million in revenue. Swift’s net worth has increased to $1.1 billion following its first leg, which brought in an estimated $190 million after taxes. Next year, the performance will travel to Europe and Asia.
Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, holds the title of most powerful woman in the world for 2023. Her budgetary and policy decisions have an impact on the 450 million people living in Europe. It’s possible the number may soon surpass 500 million. Von der Leyen reiterated her goal to admit Ukraine and the other Western Balkan countries as official EU members in her yearly state of the union address in September.
Christine Lagarde, the president of the European Central Bank, is ranked second this year and is in charge of monetary policy in Europe during a period of elevated inflation. Additionally, U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris ranks higher than Swift.
