Taylor Swift has just fallen through with Tom Hiddleton. According to sources, the pair split after Swift refused to attend the Emmy Awards red carpet with the Avengers actor.
Could this mean yet another hit single and more record breaking sales from the notorious songstress?
After all, it’s no secret that her ultra-high net worth is somewhat linked to her dating. Today, we take a look at just how much the singer could have possibly made from her break-ups.
Banking on her break-ups
The bulk of her greatest hits are greatly inspired by her heart-breaking experiences.
From high school crushes and famous celebrities, Swift’s songs connected with her fans through this public diary where she rolls out the full spectrum of her emotional roller coaster.
The profitable love story
This empathy has successfully helped her make most of her greatest hits – bagging home both monetary and public recognition.
The Billboard champion song – We Are Never Getting Back Together – for example, clinched the very first position on Billboard in 2012. This single song itself garnered a 7 million copies worldwide sales and is crowned one of the best-selling singles worldwide.
In the music video, she directed her resentment at her former boyfriend – Jake Gyllenhaal, as she wore the scarf and gold bracelet that were from him.
The income generating album
With multiple break ups come multiple songs that can generate multiple massive income streams!
Her most popular album – 1989 – is a classic example. She has successfully intrigued her fans to decode and make sense of her ambiguity. This very album has five songs in the top 10 Billboard Hot 100 chart and was immediately invited to join an exclusive Billboard chart club.
… And tour
This is not the end.
Forbes revealed that Swift’s 1989 World Tour has been grossing an average of $4 million per stop. The sales of tickets, t-shirts and related items all steered her tour to be one of the Top 10 highest-grossing in the entertainment history.
She’s now part of the ultra high net worth club
So how much is Taylor Swift worth? A jaw-dropping US$309 million (SGD417.57), as of August 2016!
From break up songs, to profitable stories, to income generating albums and tours, it is of no surprise that these concluded that she is an Ultra High Net Worth Individual now.
The 1989 tour has significantly helped her achieved that – bringing in a $170 million from June 2015 to June 2016, making her one of Hollywood’s richest celebrities!
So now that Taylor Swift is going through a split again, how much do you think she will bag home for her next single?
