Lady Gaga Tops Forbes Highest Earners Under 30 List

Written by Sarah Bella on July 23, 2013

Forbes have released their annual list of top-earning celebrities under the age of 30 and Lady Gaga is sitting pretty at the top, with the Poker Face singer taking home the top honour with her $80 million earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.

Gaga would earned even more if she’d been able to finish her Born This Way tour, which was cut short when the 27-year-old underwent hip surgery for a labral tear. Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, didn’t let her injury keep her down, though – she continued to make appearances in a custom-made 24-karat gold plated wheelchair.

Justin Bieber‘s not far behind in the second position, with the 19 year old earning $58 million, collecting another 20 million Twitter followers and having stakes in start-up companies like Enflick, Tinychat and Spotify. Taylor Swift is hot on his heels in third position, earning $55 million, with her album Red selling 1.2 million copies in its first week alone.

Musicians and women dominate the list, with 7 of the top 10 being female, including Rihanna at number 5, who’s played more than 40 shows in the last year and earned $43 million, and Katy Perry at number 6, who took home $39 million, in part thanks to her 2012 biopic Part Of Me.

Check out the top 10 below, or the full list here.
