Lady Gaga named highest earner of 2010
London: Following her Grammy success, pop diva Lady Gaga has another reason to celebrate as she has been named the highest-earning pop star of 2010.
The `Poker Face` hitmaker topped Billboard`s money makers list, raking in USD 30.5 million last year. Rockers Bon Jovi regained second slot with USD 30.4 million and Pink Floyd star Roger Waters clinched third slot with USD 24.4 million.
Teen sensation Justin Bieber rounded the top five with USD 22.4 million, a website reported.
"Lady Gaga was inescapable in 2010. The pop singer, only a few years removed from her original hair colour and shows at small downtown New York venues, so thoroughly dominated the last year that it seemed almost a foregone conclusion that she would top the Money Makers list," a Billboard spokesman said.
Other celebrities to make it to the top 10 included Country star Taylor Swift earning USD 20.7 million, Michael Buble USD 19.8 million, Eagles USD 18.3 million, Black Eyed Peas USD 16.8 million and Sir Paul MCCartney with USD 14.1 million.
