Taylor Swift's legacy has only grown this year, starting with the global Eras Tour, which grossed over $1 billion — a first for any tour. And her concert film set a new record for ticket sales in its category, ultimately securing her billionaire status. As of October, Swift's total net worth was $1.1 billion, per Bloomberg.

Swift was also named TIME's 2023 Person of the Year earlier this month.
