Even though Lady Gaga was forced to cancel part of her tour due to hip surgery, the 27-year-old pop princess still managed to rake in $80 million last year. According to a new report by Forbes, Gaga is the top earning celebrity under 30, beating out top teen idols like Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift.
To compile the ranking, Forbes compiled entertainment-related income for the 12 months from June 2012 through June 2013 by talking to agents, managers, producers and executives. Gaga’s “Born This Way” tour grossed $168 million through January, and would most likely have exceeded $200 million had she not needed to cancel 20 U.S. shows for medical reasons.
Gaga’s next album “ARTPOP” will be released on November 11.
