Taylor Swift Net Worth $220 Million

She’s young, beautiful, famous and yes, filthy rich.  Average mortals would get the flak if they kissed and told their romantic conquests but Taylor can diss her past boyfriends (her latest album, Red, is reportedly about her failed romance with actor Jake Gyllenhaal) though her music rivals critics would lap it up as clever songwriting.  

Taylor Swift

The 23-year-old leggy singer has been credited as the youngest person ever to have singlehandedly penned and sung a song that landed at the top of the charts. 

Garth Brooks Net Worth $150 Million

With global album sales surpassing the 100-million mark, it’s easy to imagine Oklahoma native Garth Brooks as a multi-millionaire.  The 51-year-old is the best-selling artist in the U.S. next to Elvis Presley.  The “If Tomorrow Never Comes” singer-songwriter’s success is credited to his ability to blend country and rock elements in his music.
