Forbes: Lady GaGa Lands At #1 On ‘Top Earning Celebrities Under 30’ List

Published: Monday 22nd Jul 2013 by Sam

In today’s industry, artists, actors, and anyone making a claim to the “entertainer” title must embrace being a brand if success is the name of their game.

One needn’t look further than this year’s Forbes ‘Top Earning Celebrities Under 30’ list for the most potent proof of this.

Sitting atop of the tally is Lady GaGa, who does so despite having not released new music since 2011. It is the ‘ARTPOP’ purveyor’s gargantuan tour gross (see: ‘Born This Way Ball’) and success in the fragrance arena that cements her name above the other on the list. Which begs the question…who are the other honorees? Find out after the jump!

  ‘Top Earning Celebrities Under 30’

1) Lady Gaga – $80 Million

2) Justin Bieber – $58 Million

3) Taylor Swift – $55 Million

4) Calvin Harris – $44 Million

5) Rihanna – $43 Million

6) Katy Perry – $39 Million

7) Adele – $25 Million 

8) Jennifer Lawrence – $26 Million

9) Kristen Stewart – $22 Million

10) Taylor Lautner – $22 Million

Like GaGa, the vast majority of those featured have their hands in many a pot – be it acting, endorsements, and/or touring. Again, highlighting the importance of being a “360” entity whether signed to such a contract or otherwise!

And for those wondering why Adele ranks towards the bottom of the list; ’21’ may have sold more than Katy’s, JB’s, and Fenty’s latest LP’s combined, yet unlike them she didn’t embark on a world tour – which made a world of difference when compiling such a list.

Still, given that the lion share of the Brit’s earnings are from music sales alone (music she wrote, at that), we say both she and GaGa are the true winners here.

More power to ’em all!

    Damn Rihanna is holding it down for young black females right now.

    • CSquadTurntUp July 22, 2013

      Sit down w****. She’s a bad role model for black girls.

      • DenimJunkieKidd July 22, 2013

        Right, because braking records, starting business, touring the world, and living your life on your own accord despite what other people think is a terrible message to send to our young black females who walk around aspiring to be a basketball/rapper’s jump off with a asian/Brazilian women’s hair on her head!!

    • Mother Monster July 22, 2013

  5. Mother Monster July 22, 2013

  7. JJFan1814 July 22, 2013

    No wonder Rita POORa is with Calvin….He has BANKING to be a DJ! Da f***!

    Anyways, proud to see Rih up there!! Especially Adele, that’s f****** crazy! “21” is a classic and I am so proud it has reached the success that it has garnered.

  8. Draggin4MrsCarter July 22, 2013

    Rihanna is just lucky Beyonce is 32 because we know what would have happened if she was under 30.
    You’ll always be lesser than the Queen b**** and don’t you ever forget it.

    • Rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 22, 2013

      Beyonce is about 50 years old, and if she is not, that must suck to 32 and look 50. Rih is 25 with over $ 100 mill in the bank. Not bad for a one hit wonder, who cannot sing / write her own s*** and is own a 360/

      • Draggin4MrsCarter July 22, 2013

        I’m not surprised you can’t count. Probably lost all your senses when you tried to measure how wide Rihanna’s p**** is now.

    • Mark111 July 22, 2013

      Beyonce fans goes miles to throw her name in a Rihanna topic. Why would they bring a 40 year old in a 30 and under is beyond me.

    • MuiMui July 22, 2013

      DRAGGING4MRSCARTER,Everything must change,the young become the old,and mysteries do unfold,if we all live long enough.

    • Rihanna killed beyho’s career July 22, 2013

      At 25 BeUglyonce was not as big as Rihanna. Sit down

  9. Rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 22, 2013

    Rih mad $ 43 mill this year and $ 53 mil last year. $ 29 mill the year before that/

    43
    53
    29 What does that equal. This has got to be over $ 100 at age 25. Carry hating haters, and yes, she is the only You black person in showbiz making bank.

    • MuiMui July 22, 2013

      RITA AND BEYONCE you are so right and i could name fifety artist who has never made this list before are after the age of thirty years young., and going on thirty to forty years young.
      This list is so telling to me,and not seeing another person of color just seals the deal for me that all the hate that Rihanna get is for a reason and that hate Struggle is Real when we read the hate on Her.

  10. Kimbella July 22, 2013

    We all know Rihanna doesn’t stand a chance against Taylor Justin and Gaga but dont try and down play her shes still doing big things its not always about being number 1

    • MuiMui July 22, 2013

      KIMBELLA From the looks of the list for the last three to four years nobody else stand a chance aganist Taylor,Justin, Gaga. But that do not matter to the people who tries to live
      in Rihanna castle .

  11. Ciara QUEEN Harris July 22, 2013

    Rihanna is a broke b**** lol

    • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

      Where is Ciara?

      • Slayara July 22, 2013

        With her man, something Riprostitute does not have.

      • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

        She have a man its her money baby.. She is going to cash checks at the bank. 🙂

      • FAF July 22, 2013

        DEAD @ Slayara

        let ’em stay mad, h** 😆

  12. DOSSOME July 22, 2013

    To all those who thought Ms.Oral was screwing Harris for hits,this list is the real T

  13. cici slaaaaaays July 22, 2013

    Lmao Rihanna supposed to be the Queen yet the h** can never reach number 1 on forbes

    • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

      Where is your girl CICI?

  14. Rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 22, 2013

    Rih made over $ 40 mill. She does not write her own songs and is meant to be on 360 deal – if that is the case….why does she earn enough to get her on the forbes list at 25? Explain, haters?

    • MuiMui July 22, 2013

      Add to that Rihanna is supposed to be Talentless and still yet look at the so called talent and their Talent can’t even buy them a spot behind Rihanna’s booty on that list. When the people who trikes their hand at trash talking Rihanna they are air bags and nothing else.
      And speaking of 360 deals they will use anything they can to use aganist Rihanna and its their desperate attempt at trying to tear her a new One, nothing more and nothing less.

      • Common Sense July 22, 2013

        Money made =/= talent.

        Or are you going to tell me that Paris Hilton has some amazing talent (other than sucking d*** on night vision) that we haven’t heard of?

    • -= July 22, 2013

      but rihanna is on the list,why you people are so press on being stupid,as far as i see it,ask long as you are on the list you caking,plus even if you are not up there they are still making more money than people on here trying to look stupid….on the other hand though when Jay and bay the song wrighter uncle sam take there cut out of it how much do Rihanna left with..no matter though she still rich.

  15. TaylorWins July 22, 2013

    Queen Taylor wins again. Too bad all of Rihanna’s money isn’t hers.

  31. Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

    It`s funny how the Flop squad I mean C squad is going in on Rihanna. But where is Ciara? On the list have she ever been on there. Before yall come at Trina Her two albums vs Ciara last two albums Trina sold more.

    • Super Cisus July 22, 2013

      • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

        WHO SOLD MORE!!!! You mad now #Flopsquad

      • Super Cisus July 22, 2013

        Goodies sold 3 million in USA alone that’s more than Trina entire flopography b****

      • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

        Trina first two Albums went platinum. You can leave now thank you!!! btw Ciara net is 16 Million Trina is 21 Million
        -wipes down Trina platinum albums-

      • Super Cisus July 22, 2013

        B**** lie two gold albums and two un certified albums. You a lie. Goodies sold 5 million world wide and Evolution sold 3 million world wide when will Slutrina

      • Super Cisus July 22, 2013

        3 un certified albums!!

  32. RihBoy July 22, 2013

    Lmao at the Ciara stans saying Rihanna is broke….that must mean Ciara is the b**** on welfare in the industry…down their with Keyshia Cole and them…..Calvin Harris made them coins off of Riri ..sweetie…try again….oh and Riri’s funds will surpass Beys soon…..all in time….

    • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

      They just mad…. We have to put them down there with Keyshia and Keri

    • Jesse July 22, 2013

      Um by the looks of things Rihanna will never have Beyonce’s figures…so yeah. I do agree with you about the F-Squad and their t***** of a fave though. They have no room to shade anyone.

      • RihBoy July 22, 2013

        Don’t say never, at one time i thought i wouldn’t be possible to as a fan. However with all of her endorsements..including her own clothing line which is flourishing……albums that are still charting and doing well….all of the promotion. I think its possible to surpass or to even match just Bey’s funds..not Jayz’s funds or dc3. Moreover has plenty of time to put out atleast a few more great albums…where the demand for music from Bey is at a slow decline…

      • Jesse July 22, 2013

        Slow decline or not Beyonce is still a better album seller, manages to maintain her endorsements for years, and actually controls her own brand. It is possible that Rihanna will surpass her one day…but not probable.

  33. Jon July 22, 2013

    How is it that lady gaga and Beyoncé earn more than rihanna on their years
    Off.. Lmao just shows who the real queens are!!

  34. Mark111 July 22, 2013

    With that said, I think Rihanna fulfilled her Def Jam contract (6 albums) and I remember Jay help her with a publishing co. So Rihanna is getting paid and is in full control of her career. Anyone signed after 2006 is in a 360, it’s just the law of the land now. Funny, I don’t see any young money artist on here. Like I said, Drake and Nicki checks are as cut as a pizza, they’re not making s***. Give it 10 years and they’ll be broke and on Where Are They Now tv show.

    • BeyWhoUWanna July 22, 2013

      Your delusion is so authentic girl.

    • Music July 22, 2013

      Drake has a chance. Ppl still love him. Nicki is and always will be a fad.

  35. Baby I- Ariana July 22, 2013

    At this point whether you like Rihanna or not you cant help but laughin at the Ciara Lana & Rita stans throwing shade yet they favs is no where to be found on the list thats the real kiiiiiI

  42. Ciara is everything July 22, 2013

    B**** where is Trina on the charts?

    • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

      B**** did Ciara even sell more then 58k? Have she ever had a number one ablum? When Future drop her ass what is she going to do?

      • Super Cisus July 22, 2013

        Evolution was #1 with 338k sold when will Slutrina b****? She fell off after stopped suckin trick daddy d*** for lyrics

      • Super Cisus July 22, 2013

        Trina ain’t neva been hot h**. Lil Kim uglee ass slay her and Queen Nicki

  43. Vegas Girl July 22, 2013

    Some of you all realize that an estimated” earning” of this money isn’t the same as them “keeping” the money? They earned this money for their label, etc…anyone that they are contracted with, they don’t actually get to keep most of this. But I’m not only surprised that Gaga topped the list but that she out earned everyone by so much! That’s insane.

    • Super Cisus July 22, 2013

      Rihalienna will only take 1 million of that 43 she is a broke joke

    • Common Sense July 22, 2013

      Someone who gets it!!!

    • Music July 22, 2013

      Gaga is a smart business woman and isn’t a label puppet waiting on the next songwriter to make her a hit. She’s trained as a musician, produces her own s***, therefore most of her earnings are close to this amount. Her net worth is close to $150 million.

  44. Ciara is everything July 22, 2013

    Im not guna hate on Rihanna she made it on the list she’s the only black person on the list which is sad…

  45. overdose July 22, 2013

    Beyonce fans should shut up f****** hypocrites its ok for yall to talk s*** but not the c squad gtfoh

    • Jesse July 22, 2013

      B**** shut up. Yeah its ok for Beyonce fans to be vocal about how they feel because Beyonce is a vet in the game…who can actually back her s*** up. Whilst Ciara can barely even sell 65k in the first week. I’m not even a Rihanna fan but damn, lets give props when due. Ciara fans don’t have the right to drag anyone, because end the end they are only shading themselves. It just doesn’t make any damn sense SMDH.

  46. B**** I might be July 22, 2013

    The jealously c squad has against Rihanna is real lmao

  47. Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

    Aint nobody lying go look it up boo.. #Ask.com

    That’s a bad b**** right there what can’t she do now, I understand the frustrations of the z-sqaud on this post I’d mad to if my fave was flopping like a fish outta water

  49. Slayrita Legendora July 22, 2013

    Lmao! How on earth is Calvin f***** Harris worth more than Rihyodel!!! Lmao! So Happy for Queen Rita. She must be getting that good money. (Rihyodel’s bf’s can only give her fists to the face)

    • Ora July 22, 2013

      • Music July 22, 2013

        The queens of fat deposits and checks! No she isn’t Madonna. And who cares. She’s iconic tho and she will be remembered years from now. More than Britney, Rihanna, Katy probably and has carved a lane of her own. Haters can stay in denial but she will continue to collect coins and s*** on ur faves. Deal.

  54. Mdna July 22, 2013

    I cant at Rita fans bragging about Calvins money like its hers.

    I think some of these Ciara stans are Beyonce stans in hiding tbh

    • Jesse July 22, 2013

      No, they are not. They shade Beyonce all of the time too. Those b****** are beyond stupid.

  55. Jamie July 22, 2013

    Its sad how this is an urban blog and she the only black person to make the list yet you people want tear her down and call her all types of horrible things sheesh wheres the support? Yall can’t be happy to see a young black girl being successful? And you wonder why white people treat us like s*** we treat are own people like they aren’t s*** smh… Anyways congrats Rihanna & This is coming from a Beyonce stan

    • Common Sense July 22, 2013

      Wait wait wait, people are supposed to kiss someone’s ass just because it happens to be black? How about you get some self-respect and stand for artists with integrity and talent and not just hit-making puppets because they happen to share your skin tone.

  56. The Boy Toy July 22, 2013

    Ciara stans are retarded…and I will not issue an apology like J Cole.

    • PEGGYHYLS5 on Instagram July 22, 2013

      Rihanna s worth an estimated $143 million. [Forbes Febuary 2011].
      Ciara s worth $22 million

  57. PEGGYHYLS5 on Instagram July 22, 2013

    Biggggg looooooooooooool of the year!!! Congrats to GAGA from REAL KING B S FANS and well done RIH atleast you made the list

  58. Lana The Legend July 22, 2013

    Z- Squad has to be the saddest stan base ever. I dont even like Rihanna but theres no way ima try and drag somebody when my fav didn’t even make the list yall look stupid.

    • PEGGYHYLS5 on Instagram July 22, 2013

      OK LETS GET FACTS OUT ACCORDING TO FORBES; Lady Gaga Estimated Net Worth: $150 Million
      Rihanna Estimated Net Worth: $143 Million Beyonce Estimated Net Worth: $342 Million Ciara Estimated Net Worth: $22 Million. Someone please tell CIARA S FANZ TO STFU

  59. just….moi July 22, 2013

    Wait………. If rih is a flop then what makes ci-God please do i really have a career?- ara? . I really need someone to answer this question.

    • Jesse July 22, 2013

      That would make Ciara-man the flop of all flops… Duh lol.

  60. stephy the lambily July 22, 2013

    The Queen Of Pop Lady Gaga. LOL

  61. Jake July 22, 2013

    I guess Beyoncé hit 31 … Oh wait she just did!

  62. Suicide Blonde July 22, 2013

    Forbes is predictable, another article payed by team Gaga, Forbes is her new best friend like Elton John was, i wonder why Forbes didn’t put Madonna at number one in the other list despite the fact that she make more money than the rest, that’s right, they decided to included social networks but this time they go back to their old rules, what a coincidence, btw Little Freakies find a new nickname to your idol, The Queen of Pop is Madonna, oh wait like your idol, these aren’t able to create something new and simple like an honorific nickname, you prefer to take and copy what others have done.

    • Common Sense July 22, 2013

      Forbes is a joke and not to be taken seriously in any way, shape, or form.

      • Music July 22, 2013

        And y’all can stay jealous and broke cuz haters shouldn’t be taken seriously either.

    • miao July 22, 2013

      GODDESS, QUEEN, MODERN AGE ICON: LADY f****** GAGA! Stay pressed b******!

      ..and until ARTPOP comes, let’s have a party..

      *plays:

      Malcolm Mclaren – Deep in Vogue

  63. Katy kat July 22, 2013

    Wheres Ciara on the list? leave riri alone

    Congratulations to Katy Rihanna & Taylor the only b****** i care about on the list

  64. Slayara July 22, 2013

    Im dying at the hypocritical H** yall have a problem when Ciara stans talk s*** yet you fake mutha fuckas stay talkin s*** on Rihanna yall all types of fake on here…. especially this Jesse b****

    • Jesse July 22, 2013

      Hypocrite? B**** at least I can give credit where its due. So don’t even try it. The FSquad don’t give a f*** about the hive. I tried to be on Ciara’s team but I’ll be damn if I do, after the way the FSquad has been trying to drag her… And no b**** I have problems when people who stan for b****** who can’t even sell 100k in the first week…talk s***. As a matter of fact, they shouldn’t even be allowed to comment. Like I said before, I’m not even a Rihanna fan, but lets keep that s*** real. Ciara’s a flop and her fans don’t have the right to shade anyone. How are you gonna throw shade when your fave isn’t even on the list?

      The s*** just looks stupid…Am I lying???

    • Jesse July 22, 2013

      Oh, and how am I being fake? Actually, when have I ever dragged Rihanna? I don’t stan for her but I’ve never had anything against her…

  65. TeamBreezy July 22, 2013

    No wonder “Ciara” is dropping out of the BB 200 top ten after 1 week, her fans are busy ridiculing artists that actually sell albums and make money .. sad day

    • FAF July 22, 2013

      200 top ten after 1 week? B**** dont nobody give a f*** Ciara dont even have to publish her Forbes thats how secure her finances are. B**** her singles doing better than Riwhore. Now thats sad when its not even pop. KIIIII

      • Common Sense July 22, 2013

        LMAO! The absolute EPITOME of DELUSION! C-Error is in flop central waiting for her train to Irrelevance.

      • TeamBreezy July 22, 2013

        Rihanna’s “unofficial” singles outsell anything Ciara has done in over 2 eras . And lets be honest, FORBES does not know who Ciara is ,
        bye

  66. Micks July 22, 2013

    Damn and people wonder they call Rihanna a puppet. She should be on much more than that with all her exposure.

  67. FAF July 22, 2013

    Damn, so what Rihanna fans gon say now? She not even on top of the one thing beyonce not included in … Bringing up Ciara is pointless bc she doesn’t publish her earnings, she has her own production company & owns Riwhores life in talent 😆 😆 😆

  68. FAF July 22, 2013

    Meanwhile Flop Now gets no floppier 😆 Ciara still counts money from Goodies era (3x platinum album in the US alone, 6mil ww) Where’s Riwhores? I’ll wait………….. 😆

    • Common Sense July 22, 2013

      It must be difficult for someone to delude themselves as deep as you seem to be. Rihanna’s catalog is garbage, but Ciara’s isn’t any better lol.

    • FAITH HILL STAN July 22, 2013

      6 million?????LMAOOOOOO DELUSION AT ITS FINEST. CI ERROR IS LOCAL, THERE’S NO WAY THAT SHE SOLD THAT MUCH INTERNATIONALLY. AND GOODIES HAS SOLD ONLY 2.7 MILLION, NOT 3 H**. LOLOLOLOL

    • FAF IS DELUSIONAL July 22, 2013

      INFLATION LIKE A MOTHER FUCKA

      AS OF JULY 22, 2013 GOODIES HAS SOLD 2.7 MILLION IN AMERICA AND 3.7 WORLDWIDE, WHILE THE EVOLUTION IS AT 1.3 MILLION US AND 2.5 MILLION WORLDWIDE. FANTASY RIDE 210K, BASIC INSTINCT 116K. U TRIED, SHE FAILED

  69. xedos July 22, 2013

    By the time calvin pays uk taxes it make
    Take about half of that money. While in the usa rihanna has her company which give her lots of tax deductions.by the time her accountants finish dhe msy not even pay any taxes

    • Common Sense July 22, 2013

      Unless she wants to end in jail for tax evasion, you can be guaranteed she pays plenty in taxes lol. Not to mention her label gets their cut.

  70. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 22, 2013

    YAWN.

    how many lists they ‘Cook’ weekly already ? 70 ?

  71. Tyler July 22, 2013

    Why the f*** is the Hive defending Rihanna right now? I’m not saying that they should back up the CSquad because they are being real extra right now and constantly shade Beyonce too, but why are you going up to bat for Rihanna? That’s that s*** I don’t like. Why are you real quick to defend her when the Navy has never done the same for Beyonce?

    • Jesse July 22, 2013

      Um, probably because right is right, and wrong is wrong. Some people *who shall remain nameless* have a hard time being objective because they can’t put their hateful feelings aside. The fact that she’s on the list is actually pretty commendable. That’s why I’m not gonna shade that.

      • Tyler July 22, 2013

        That’s just the thing though. Commendable or not, the CSquad shades Beyonce all of the time. And all the Navy does is jump right in. But whatever.

      • Tyler July 22, 2013

        The Navy can give two shits about ur fave. If it was Beyonce that the CSquad was bashing the Navy would not be trying to put them in check. Even if the CSquad was in the wrong…just saying.

      • Sophia July 22, 2013

        Tyler gurl why do you care so much tho? Who gives a s***

      • Gays love Gaga & Rih July 22, 2013

        The navy has put the c squad in check for dissing bey go check the bey post and you’ll see

      • Tyler July 22, 2013

        @ Gays Love Gaga and Rih
        Which Bey post are you speaking of exactly? Because I have yet to see it.

      • The Boy Toy July 22, 2013

        Lol gurl grow up. The Navy and Hive ALWAYS unites to drag C-Squad. F*** outta here heaux!

      • RihBoy July 22, 2013

        Its true…stop reaching and trying to get the hive on your side…..lol….I will definitely defend the Hive before I defend the c squad. The most deluded of all. Go collect your subpoenas and the very few receipts you have and come again.

  72. LTM July 22, 2013

    Congrats to Katy Perry and Rihanna. I’m surprised Katy is on the list when she hasn’t done anything but release fragrances and Wide Awake during the period.

  73. Music July 22, 2013

    I love Bad b**** Gaga more than overrated Madonna and always will. The fact that Madonna and her fans are bitter over a modern artist being successful in the music industry shades themselves that Madonna is not the hot artist that she once was. Jealousy is ugly. Instead of giving credit, they have livid attitude and can’t congratulate. Gaga has never said anything bad towards Madonna. Y’all stay mad over nothing. Congrats to a woman that has worked hard to get where she is! Yes she may be mainstream and generic to some ppl that don’t like her music but she’s a true artist and is good with her craft.

    • Suicide Blonde July 22, 2013

      A little monster talking about overrated and if i’m bitter and jealous just because i say the truth then i guess i’m proud to be bitter.

      • Music July 22, 2013

        She is overrated to me cuz she is praised way too much for being talentless! Nothing about her was ever that special.
        Also, what you know as the truth could also be misconceptions. Yeah yeah. How many times we heard “reductive”?? Lots of artists copy. Even Madonna. Yall make it seem like shes the only artist in history to do that!

  74. Gays love Gaga & Rih July 22, 2013

    Congratulations Gaga & Rihanna f*** katy & Taylor they basic as s***

    • Music July 22, 2013

      Agreed.

  75. Gilberto July 22, 2013

    As far as I know, these numbers don’t include the mgmt and label’s cut, so R******’s cash is 1/3 of it. LMFAO. LMFAO. LMFAO.

  76. Daniel Teflon July 22, 2013

    Lawdy I’m shocked Ri-Whine-A voice is listed as a SELLER Her sound sucks theses YEARS since she’s been a Talent show singer….:-()-

  77. PRINCE MACHIAVEL July 22, 2013

    They Said:”Caca is a finished t*****, no one cares, she’s a loser, a flop…” But Look Who’s On The TOP?!!? LMFAO Well Done Again Lady G!!!!!!

    BWT I Won’t Shade Rihanna Because The Hateful Navy Keep Bashing Gaga Like Some Angry Bees, So Congratz Rih It’s Nice To You Cross Over!

  78. JOHNVIDAL July 22, 2013

    Damn these lists are tired. How many of these do they make? One every month? lol Nobody should stan for money anyway.
    But this one makes sense though, since Gaga is obviously the biggest star since 2008.

  79. Little Monster July 22, 2013

    Its Slaydy motherfucking Godga what do you expect? While your basic faves struggle to make top 5. The power speaks for itself.
