Taylor Swift is not only the richest woman in music — she’s also the highest-paid celebrity under 30, bringing in $170 million at just age 26.

Swift broke the bank this past year thanks to her 1989 tour, which grossed $200 million, and by selling more than 9 million copies of the album.

One Direction, whose members range in age from 22 to 24, followed close behind banking a collective $110 million. The combined income by the group doesn’t include each member’s solo endeavors.

At No. 3, things shifted from music to sports with Argentine soccer player Lionel Messi, 29, becoming the highest-paid athlete in the world with earnings of $81.5 million from June 2015 to June 2016.

With $46 million, Jennifer Lawrence (12), remained Hollywood’s highest-paid actress, and Justin Bieber (6), took home $56 million (and at 22, barely beat out One Direction’s Harry Styles for the youngest star on the list).
