Taylor Swift Made More Bank in 2012 Than Anne Hathaway + Brad Pitt Combined

Taylor Swift may be an epic fail when it comes to making a relationship last more than five minutes, and she may not have a thick skin which would allow her to be able to take a ribbing courtesy of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, but there is one thing she can do. And that’s make some serious bank.

T. Swizzle raked in more cash last year than both Oscar winner Anne Hathaway and one-half of the world’s most famous couple — Brad Pitt!

Parade compiled the financial stats for its ‘What People Earn’ issue, and according to their facts and figs, Swift earned $57 million in 2012. That’s enough to make her the third highest-paid woman in the entertainment field — at 23. Only Oprah Winfrey and Britney Spears collected more. We know, we’re shocked that Brit Brit can still command as much cash as she does at this stage, but she does.

Pitt only earned $35.5 million, but that’s not as stark a contrast as one might think, since he probably has quite a pile of dough from his pre-Brangelina heyday. A. Hathaway only pulled in $10 million, despite appearing in huge blockbusters ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and ‘Les Miserables,’ the latter of which earned her an Oscar. Put her income tally and Pitt’s together and it’s less than the Swizz.

Another major earner? Justin Bieber, who despite appearing to be on his way to crashing and burning, collected $55 million in income. It’s as though he makes $6,261 an hour. How’d ya like that to be your hourly wage? The Biebs must be credited, though, for his smart investments.

May we suggest that Swift set a few Bennys on fire, since she can spare, so that she can stoke the flames of hell, which is where she relegated Poehler and Fey in her Vanity Fair cover? Quit crying and count your coin, girl.
