Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga tops Forbes' Most Powerful Musicians list

Lady GaGa has topped Forbes' World's Most Powerful Musicians of 2013 list.

The 27-year-old singer came first in the annual ranking - which is determined by earnings, social media influence and press mentions - largely thanks to the star's 'Born This Way' world tour grossing a massive $168million, despite it being cut short due to her hip injury.

The eccentric performer - who also ranked second on Forbes' Most Powerful Celebrities list - is a prolific social media user and communicates daily with her 38.5 million Twitter fans and 57.9m Facebook fans, who she calls her 'Little Monsters'.

Beyonce ranked second on the list, with her current 'Mrs. Carter World Tour' grossing $2million per concert date, while Madonna came in at number three with her 'MDNA Tour' raking in over $305 million.

Taylor Swift was fourth thanks to the smash success of her new album 'Red', while rockers Bon Jovi, powered by their 'Because We Can' tour, came in at number five, and social media whizz Justin Bieber was sixth.

Coldplay were the only British artists to feature in the American-dominated Top 10, after their world tour made them $3 million per performance.

Forbes Magazine's World's Most Powerful Musicians Top 10 is as follows:

1 - Lady Gaga

2 - Beyonce

3 - Madonna

4 - Taylor Swift

5 - Bon Jovi

6 - Justin Bieber

7 - Jennifer Lopez
