Recently, Forbes reported that Harris and Swift were the biggest earning celebrity couple of the moment, outdoing Beyonce and Jay-Z who really ought to watch that throne. They have a combined annual income of $146 million. On top of all that, she’s super sweet to her adoring fans, taking time to reach out to those who share their stories on social media, she’s fast turning us into cat lovers and over the last few years, she has blossomed into a bonafide style icon.
