She sang recently about Bad Blood - but there certainly isn't any with her accountant.

Taylor Swift has been named the highest-paid musician in the world after reportedly earning more than one million dollars a day for the duration of 2015, according to The Express. 

The 25-year-old hitmaker is said to have raked in around $317.8 million since January due to her host of smash hits, a world tour and a series of lucrative endorsement deals.

The stunning star released her fifth studio album in October last year and the hugely-successful record sold 1.287 million in its first week and debuted at number one in album charts around the world. 

On top of the huge success of the album, Taylor embarked on an accompanying tour, The 1989 World Tour, which saw her storm the globe performing 85 jam-packed dates, in North America, Asia, Europe and Oceania.

Just five shows from the North America branch earned $16.8 million from 149,708 ticket sales.

Los Angeles-based media analyst Mike Raia told the paper: 'Right now, Taylor is untouchable. She is so far ahead of everyone else in the industry that she has become not only a powerhouse entertainer but also an important mover and shaker on the commercial side on the music business.'

Atop her lucrative music career - Taylor has a series of endorsements under her belt which add to her considerable wealth. 

Nice little earner: Taylor's popularity has soared in recent years after her former country music has taken a more pop-orientated turn.

The Shake It Off hitmaker has launched three fragrances in conjunction with cosmetics giant Elizabeth Arden as well as her promotional deals with Diet Coke and Keds footwear.

In 2015, Taylor was placed at number eight in the Forbes Celebrity 100 rich list and number 64 in the Powerful Women list. 

The prestigious magazine predicted she will hit billionaire status by her 30th birthday and will eventually wind up as one of the world's wealthiest women.

Taylor and her boyfriend Calvin Harris, who first stepped out together in May, are ready to become the most powerful showbiz couple on the planet.

She and her Glaswegian-born record producer beau, 31, recently topped a Forbes poll of the highest paid pairings, with a combined net worth of £92.8m ($146m).

The newly-loved up A-listers eclipsed the wealth of Single Ladies chart topper Beyoncé, 33, and her 45-year-old rapper husband Jay Z, who amassed a mere £70.2m ($110.5m) fortune in 2014.
