In things that make me wonder about our society, Taylor Swift tied with Sir Paul McCartney on Forbes list of 2012 highest earning musicians.
Between album sales, concert sales, and her CoverGirl endorsement, Taylor managed to tie in 8th place with $57 million in earnings.
The 22 year old
high school aged boys enthusiast money making machine beat out Justin Bieber who managed to make tenth on the list with earnings of $55 million. The world actually just stopped making sense to me.
