Taylor Swift, Rihanna also make the list

By On

Lady Gaga has triumphed in Forbes magazine's annual top-earning celebrities under 30 list with an income of approximately $80 million in the last year alone, fending off competition from the likes of Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lawrence.

The 'Edge Of Glory' singer was forced to cancel the remaining US dates of her 'Born This Way Ball' tour earlier this year after tearing her right hip and having to undergo surgery meaning she has spent several months taking a break from performing.

Despite reports that she lost millions in revenue due to the cancelled shows, Gaga's bank balance clearly hasn't taken a hit with Forbes reporting that she took home an estimated $80 million from the dates that she did complete in the last year, becoming the top earning celebrity under 30.

Coming in second place is 'Beauty and a Beat' singer Justin Bieber who is currently on his 'Believe' tour and earned $58 million in the last year, also due to income from his various business ventures and stakes in Spotify, Enflick and Tinychat.

Taylor Swift, who broke records with her last album 'Red' after selling 1.2 million copies in its first week in the US, comes in third with a reported fortune $55 million which she raked in since last June, while her endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Sony and Covergirl have also proved to be lucrative.

Another musician to make the top five is Rihanna who holds the fourth position with earnings of $43 million in the last year, thanks to the 40 shows which she performed and sales from her latest album 'Unapologetic' which features the smash hit singles 'Diamonds' and 'Stay.'

Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence has become the highest-placing actor on the list at number eight, due to earnings from her hit movies The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook which have grossed an income of $26 million.

Also featuring on the list is Kristen Stewart, Calvin Harris, Katy Perry and Taylor Lautner.
