What do Taylor Swift, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates have in common? Well, it's obviously not the strange haircut. The answer is this: they're all billionaires. Taylor Swift is now a billionaire. And she has the "Eras" tour to thank for it. Taylor Swift Achieves Billionaire Status We've all heard of Taylor Swift. If you haven't, we only have one question: have you been living under a rock? According to Bloomberg, the 33-year-old pop star has just achieved billionaire status. Alright... But how was her billionaire status calculated? Let's see, shall we? The estimated value of the singer's five homes is $110 million. Her music catalogue accounts for approximately $400 million for music released since 2019. Her streaming deals from YouTube and Spotify ploughed in approximately $120 million, while her music sales account for about $80 million. Last, we have her earnings from concert tickets and merchandise, which amounts to $370 million. Taking into account income tax, commissions paid to her managers and agents, and other costs, it adds up to a billion. Bloomberg also noted that their analysis was a "conservative" one, meaning that for all we know, the 33-year-old's net worth could be even higher than we expected. From Pop Sensation to Billionaire: How the "Eras" Tour Bumped Taylor Swift to Billionaire Status You might be thinking: Hasn't Taylor Swift always been a pop sensation? How has she, all of a sudden, achieved billionaire status because of her music? Well, it's mainly because of her recent "Eras" tour. The "Eras" tour, which concluded its US leg in August, generated more than $700 million in ticket sales to date—it makes sense, given that the average ticket price was $254. The singer's pre-tax profit from the "Eras" tour, to date, amounts to $225 million. To put things into perspective, this is more than twice her profits from her last tour in 2018. Ah, yes... I guess we contributed to Taylor Swift's billionaire status. Pat on the back for us. 89 More Dates in International Leg of Taylor Swift's "Eras" Tour Now that the 33-year-old is a billionaire, what's next?

And there are 89 dates for the tour's international leg; think about all the ticket and merchandise sales that will be generated. Heng, ong, huat! Taylor Swift's re-release of her 2014 album 1989, her fourth re-recorded album, is also expected to start topping the charts soon and ploughing in more money for the singer—the album was just released on Friday (27 October). I guess you could say Taylor Swift's in her billionaire "era" now.
