Lady Gaga Leads Forbes' 2011 Top-Earning Women

Lady Gaga was pop’s top-earning woman in 2011. According to Forbes, Lady Gaga earned $90 million from album sales, touring and endorsements — double the estimated earnings of Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, who made $45 million and $44 million, respectively.

 In Gaga context, that’s over $5 million for each of the pop provocateur’s nearly 17 million Twitter followers, or $2 million a piece for her Facebook little monsters.

The numbers reflect earnings between May 2010 and 2011.
