Forbes has released their annual Celebrity 100, with Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Madonna topping the chart of the most powerful musicians on the list.

Lady Gaga took the top spot by earning $80 million over just the past 12 months, despite the singer’s lucrative Born This Way Ball being cut short due to her hip injury. Her staggering social media presence (she has 38 million followers on Twitter alone) is also cited as a deciding factor in Gaga owning the No. 1 position. Her next album, ARTPOP, is loosely slated for a release at the end of this year.

Hot on the heels of Gaga is Beyonce, whose current Mrs. Carter Show World Tour (which recently added more dates) and forthcoming album is thrusting her back into the spotlight, after she spent most of last year raising her daughter with Jay-Z (he’s No. 32 on the list).
