Lady Gaga makes a fortune in 2011

Lady Gaga tops off the year with a record amount of money.
Lady Gaga has had an amazing year
2011 has been one of the busiest, most exciting and productive years of Lady Gaga's burgeoning career, which hasn't been a bad thing for the star financially.

The international megastar, who has had more wardrobe changes than even Madonna, has been named as the highest-earning female artist of 2011.

Forbes revealed that Gaga has earned a confounding £58 million from the sale of her second album Born This Way, a glut of endorsements and a world tour that has been monumental.

She was followed by country singer Taylor Swift (£29 million) and then poptastic Katy Perry (£28 million).

Surprisingly, given that she has been a permanent fixture in the charts and tabloid newspapers and magazines, Rihanna came in at a nevertheless respectable number five (£18.7 million).

She was pipped by her R&B colleague and pal Beyonce, who earned a whopping £22.6 million.

Adele, who has had just as good a year as Rihanna and Lady Gaga, commercially and critically, was the only Brit to make it into the top ten bagging a tidy £11.6 million.
