For the first time Taylor Swift has been named among Forbes’ list of the 100 Most Powerful Women of 2015, landing as No. 64 among dignified company such as Queen Elizabeth II (No. 41), and Hilary Clinton (No. 2) and Oprah Winfrey (No. 12) who both celebrate their 12th year on the list.
The 25-year-old recording star sets the world-record as the youngest women to be named on Forbes’ Most Powerful Women list this year. In other recent accomplishments, Swift became the first artist to sell over 3.5 million copies of her album “1989” the same week it was released in 2014, and currently estimated to have a net worth of $200 million. Earlier this month Swift was piled at the top of the Maxim’s Hot 100 list.
“The bona fide, cross-genre global megastar has not only broken record sales and captivated the world with her fantastically honest lyrics, but she has proven herself as an impressive businesswoman. Late last year, the pop-country singer pulled her entire catalogue from Spotify, striking back at the belief that streaming services don’t adequately compensate artists,” it said in her Forbes profile.
