Taylor Swift continues to reign supreme in the music industry, as she's been named Billboard's highest-earning artist.
In its annual Money Makers list, Billboard has selected Swift as its highest earning musical act, following the singer's banner year in 2013. The "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer placed at No. 15 on the list a year prior, which took into account the musician's 2012 earnings. Madonna was No. 1 previously, however she did not make the list in 2014.
