Taylor Swift‘s Met Gala dress keeps coming back for more. The “Style” singer, 26, and her silver Louis Vuitton number cover Vogue‘s special issue dedicated to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala 2016.

She wore a Louis Vuitton dress, boots, and clutch paired with Mattia Cielo earrings, an Eva Fehren ear cuff and rings, and a Borgioni white diamond ring.

This year, Taylor served as one of the event co-chairs alongside Anna Wintour, Apple executive Jonathan Ive, and Idris Elba.

 

Rihanna’s earnings fall by 50 percent, says Forbes

Barbadian superstar Rihanna ranks No. 10 on Forbes’ annual list of the top-earning women in music. Rihanna, who is 27, earned US$26 million in 2015, about half of what she earned last year, placing her at the No. 10 spot on the list.

Citing the reasons for Rihanna’s lower earnings, Forbes said that after seven albums in eight years through 2012, Rihanna has gone quite some time without a full-length release, and she only played nine dates during the magazine’s scoring period, which by the way, runs from the middle of 2014 to the middle of 2015 —resulting in a lower-than-usual finish on the top earners’ list.

Meanwhile, Katy Perry is No. 1 on Forbes’ 2015 list of the highest earning women in music.

Thanks to her Prismatic World Tour, which included 126 shows during Forbes’ scoring period, and deals with Coty, Claire’s and CoverGirl, Perry, 31, earned an estimated US$135 million from June 1, 2014, to June 1, 2015, to clinch the No. 1 spot, the financial magazine said.

In the No. 2 position is Taylor Swift, 25, who earned an estimated US$80 million following the launch of her widely successful pop album “1989” in October 2014, which has sold more than 3.6 million copies to date.

The iconic five-member band Fleetwood Mac is in third position, qualifying because they have two female members, Stevie Nicks and the returning Christine McVie. The band earned an estimated US$59.5 million, mainly from touring, clinching the No. 3 spot on the list, Forbes said.

Lady Gaga landed in the No. 4 spot with US$59 million, comprised of her 66 shows during the scoring period and deals with fashion house Versace, Mac cosmetics and profits from her Fame fragrance.

And rounding out the top five is Beyonce with US$54.5 million, courtesy of her On the Run Tour with hubby Jay Z. That tour grossed over $100 million during 19 show show dates in North America.

Singer Adele is back! She is topping the charts and kicking Taylor Swift record with over 100 million views for her new music video in less than 7 days.  In her first proper interview in three years, the singer explained to i-D magazine that the heartbreak themes of her previous record won’t dominate “25.”

“I’m not heartbroken, but I probably won’t be able to better the one I did, so what’s the point?” she said. “Also, how I felt when I wrote ’21,’ it ain’t worth feeling like that again. … I was very sad and very lonely. Regardless of being a mom or a girlfriend, I didn’t want to feel like that again.”
