How much money does Katy Perry have?
Californian singer Katy Perry is considered America’s greatest pop export. She describes herself as an entrepreneur and says: “There is no shame in being a boss”. The secret of their success lies in their worldwide popularity. She makes around 60% of all sales outside the USA, mainly through world tours. Her total career earnings since 2010 are estimated to be over $350 million. Of course, taxes have to be paid as well. This results in an estimated fortune of 290 million euros . Katy is currently expecting her first child with her fiancé Orlando Bloom.
Katy Perry is the highest paid female superstar
The fact that Perry’s star is still on the rise is shown by her ranking on the Forbes celebrity lists. Business magazine listed her as the 9th highest paid celebrity in the world in 2014 , rising to 3rd in 2015. Forbes estimates her annual earnings from the world tour at $135 million . This made her the top earner among female stars – ahead of colleagues like Beyoncé , Lady Gaga , Rihanna and Taylor Swift . In comparison, last year “only” 41 million dollars were generated.
Between gospel and We will rock you
On October 25, 1984, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson—later Katy Perry—was born into a Christian household in Santa Barbara, California. As the daughter of a pastor, her early involvement in the local gospel choir ran in the family. Music was popular with parents, but it wasn’t allowed to be too worldly. That didn’t change the fact that Katheryn met and fell in love with the music of Queen at a party as a teenager: a band not well known for their Christian mission. Above all, singer Freddy Mercury served as a role model for her.
Big earnings thanks to the Prismatic World Tour
Katy Perry’s biggest source of income has recently been the Prismatic World Tour. In total, she has performed 151 times on 4 continents . The records show how spectacular the tour is:
- Best-selling US tour of 2014: #1
- Best-selling tour worldwide: 4th place
- Best-selling tour in the US of all time: #25
- Highest Commercial Tour by a Female Star in the US: #1
In 2014 alone, more than 1.4 million viewers attended the shows and generated sales of $153 million . Pollstar, the organ of the concert industry, announced sales of almost $26 million in mid-2015. And was wrong: the number has to be corrected – to more than 35.5 million dollars.
