Surprise, surprise: Oprah has landed at the top of Forbes’ list of Hollywood’s Highest Paid Women, with earnings of $165 million. But where did some of your other favorite women rank?

Britney Spears may play runner-up on this year’s list, but she’s definitely laughing all the way to the bank. The singer brought home $58 million this year from not only touring, but from endorsements, a fragrance line with Elizabeth Arden and a not-so-little paycheck from X Factor. After not even making the list in 2011, Brit-Brit definitely showed them what happens when you do something.

At 22 years old, Taylor Swift is the youngest star to make this year’s list, coming in at number three. The singer, who’s getting ready to release her fourth album, Red, on October 22, earned a total of $57 million. Her tour alone earned her one million dollars per night. Not too shabby.

Rihanna shared the number four spot with Ellen Degeneres, making $53 million and her debut on the list. Lady Gaga rounded out the top 5 with over $52 million earned from her Born This Way Ball and the launch of her social network.

Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry also made their way into the top ten.

Check out the full list of Hollywood’s Highest Paid Women.
