Taylor's fifth studio album 1989 sold a million copies in its first week last year

Not that Queen Bey and her husband have any real money worries, since their earnings for 2014-15 were $110.5 million. Coming in third are the king and queen of country music Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert with $57million.

The romance between Taylor and her hunky 6ft 5in Scotsman has been going on since about February when they were introduced at an awards ceremony.

Every day brings another sign of their mutual devotion. Calvin has been supporting the 25-year-old songbird through her mother's cancer battle and is always happy to hang out with her large posse of famous girl pals. He is the barbecuer-in-chief at their parties, according to Ellie Goulding who praised his culinary skills recently.

He shared a video of Taylor's cat Meredith Grey drinking water from a tap on Instagram on Saturday.

While Calvin did not caption the video, fans quickly worked out that it was his girlfriend's pet. "Omg you're taking care of Tay's cat? So cute," one fan tweeted.
