Lady Gaga has been crowned the biggest-earning female artist of the year. According to Forbes.com, the ‘Marry the Night’ singer’s earning was more than double of any other female pop stars over the past 12 months, raking in an impressive 90 million dollars in 2011, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Country singer Taylor Swift came in second with 45 million dollars with Katy Perry closely behind her with 44 million dollars. Beyonce Knowles and Rihanna rounded off the top five, earning 35 million dollars and 29 million dollars respectively.
Gaga’s remarkable earnings were mainly due to her ‘Monster Ball’ tour, which grossed 1.3 million dollars a night as well as many endorsement deals, which included the likes of Polaroid, Virgin Mobile, Monster Cable and PlentyOfFish.com.
The earnings estimates were arrived with the help of data from Pollstar, RIAA and others, as well as extensive interviews with industry insiders including lawyers, managers, concert promoters, agents and, in some cases, the musicians themselves. The totals encompass all pre-tax income earned from May 2010 to May 2011, before subtracting agent and manager fees.

Lady Gaga will be seen nude and in her bathtub in what is sure to be her most shocking video ever. In the video for her single ‘Marry The Night’, she writhes in the nude and has topless phone calls. Far from trying to be sexy though, the video shows her having a breakdown as she spews cereal and hurls things from the window, the Daily Star reported.
The 25-year-old singer also talks topless on the telephone, throws things out of an apartment window and poses in a bath only wearing a pair of high heeled silver shoes.
Gaga has said that the video portrays the ‘worst day of her life’ when she was dropped by her former record label Def Jam in 2006.
Lady Gaga has a reputation to shock the audience with her outrageous outfits. This week she made headlines when she showed up at the International Emmys Monday night (Nov 21) in a long black dress designed by Stéphane Rolland that almost exposed her ‘secret garden’.
When this issue was taken up with the designer she told the media that ‘ it wasn’t born that way’.
She informed the media that the asymmetrical gown came right off the catwalk, and was intended to be worn by a model much taller than Gaga. “The slit came way further up her waist than what our designers had in mind,” the rep told TMZ.
“We’re not mad that the dress ended up looking like that on Gaga … she does make it a little naughtier!” Stéphane Rolland joked.

Lady Gaga is the latest entry into the list of celebrities who were pictured going commando. Not long ago Ms Columbia created a furore in the world by exposing her privates to the cameras. Now Gaga has exposed herself while posing for photographers in a front-slit dress on a New York street.
The 25-year-old singer was seen in all-red attire, accessorised with crazy sunglasses, gloves and sky-high stilettos, forgetting one important detail – her underwear, the New York Daily News reported.
Gaga flashed it all to the photographers and her fans, leaving very little to their imagination in red latex dress on the streets in Manhattan, also revealing a racy piercing.
This is not the first time that the ‘Poker Face’ singer has become a victim to one of the biggest fashion faux pas, the previous one being at the CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet in June, where the singer wore a strapless Mugler gown that couldn’t hold down her breasts.
