Forbes announced its list of the highest earning celebs under 30, and leading the pack is Lady Gaga, followed by Justin Bieber — both of whom coincidentally also have the most pull on Twitter.

For the lineup, Forbes evaluated how much coin the young celebs earned between June 2012 and June 2013.

Turns out Mother Monster is doing pretty well for herself, earning $80 million despite hip surgery that caused her to cancel her Born this Way Ball tour.

And even though he’s cemented himself as a terrible person of late, Bieber still managed to snag the No. 2 spot, earning $58 million. Most likely because his fans will forgive him anything.

Rounding out the top three is Taylor Swift, who proved that pop music and breakup songs sell big. She took home $55 million thanks to a tour, her bestselling ‘Red’ album and a lucrative Diet Coke endorsement.

According to Forbes, here are the 10 highest earning celebs under 30 (note that seven of them are female):

  1. Lady Gaga, $80 million
  2. Justin Bieber, $58 million
  3. Taylor Swift, $55 million
  4. Calvin Harris, $46 million
  5. Rihanna, $43 million
  6. Katy Perry, $39 million
  7. Jennifer Lawrence, $26 million
  8. Adele, $25 million
  9. Kristen Stewart, $22 million
  10. Taylor Lautner, $22 million
