Lady gaga meat dress

Lady Gaga is the top-earning woman in music, bringing in $90 million between May 2010 and May 2011, according to Forbes.

That's about $10,300 an hour. You could buy a lot of meat dresses with that.

After Gaga, there's a steep drop-off. The top 10 looks like this:
  1. Lady Gaga, $90 million
  2. Taylor Swift, $45 million
  3. Katy Perry, $44 million
  4. Beyonce, $35 million
  5. Rihanna, $29 million
  6. Pink, $22 million
  7. Carrie Underwood, $20 million
  8. Celine Dion, $19 million
  9. Adele, $18 million
  10. Britney Spears and Alicia Keys, $10 million (tied)

The list looks like what you might imagine, though we're surprised Pink is still raking in that kind of money. Raise your glass, indeed.
