According to “The Top-Earning Celebrities Under 30” article, Gaga’s “Born This Way” tour earned the pop star $168 million between June 2012 and June 2013. This is in spite of a major hip injury that ended the tour early in February. Forbes estimates that Lady Gaga would have earned more than $200 million for the year if her health had stuck.
As for the rest of the list, there aren’t too many huge surprises. Justin Bieber came in second with about $58 million in earnings for the 19th year of his life. Taylor Swift, last year’s top young earner, is in third with about $55 million. Fourth place goes to DJ and music producer Calvin Harris ($46 million) while Rihanna ($43 million) is in fifth. Actors like Taylor Lautner, Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart also managed to crack the top 10.
