Forbes┬áreleased the list of top music earners for the year today and GaGa earned a whopping $90 million! That number is based on album sales, endorsements, and gross earnings from live performances. And live performances is where GaGa really broke the bank! She earned an average of $1.3 million PER LIVE SHOW in 2011! Taylor Swift ($45 million) came in 2nd place; but she earned less than 1/2 of what Lady GaGa earned! Katy Perry was third ($44 million), Beyonce was fourth ($35 million) and Rihanna was fifth ($29 million). Congrats to Lady GaGa. It’s good to see that quality music and real talent is still highly recognized and appreciated in the world.
