How does one beat out artists like Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Luke Bryan and those five cute boys from England to top Billboard’s annual Money Makers rich list? Simple. Know how to put on a show.

Taylor made almost 40 million dollars this year—with a majority of that coming from the packed out shows she performed all over the world on her Red Tour. And are we surprised? Of course not. Because we were there. Well, not for every show, but you know what I mean. Here is a little taste of what we got to see and why Miss Swift tops the money list.

OH. And you know what other list Taylor holds the number one spot on?  The “Top 20 Celebs Gone Good” list for 2013, according to nonprofit DoSomething.org. Which basically means she was the most charitable celebrity this past year.

So not only does our girl know how to MAKE money, but she knows how to GIVE it away. And THAT is just another reason why we love her.
