Following her Grammy success, pop diva Lady Gaga has another reason to celebrate as she has been named the highest-earning pop star of 2010.

The Poker Face hitmaker topped Billboard's money makers list, raking in $ 30.5 million last year. Rockers Bon Jovi regained second slot with $ 30.4 million and Pink Floyd star Roger Waters clinched third slot with $ 24.4 million.

Teen sensation Justin Bieber rounded the top five with $ 22.4 million, Contactmusic reported.

"Lady Gaga was inescapable in 2010. The pop singer, only a few years removed from her original hair colour and shows at small downtown New York venues, so thoroughly dominated the last year that it seemed almost a foregone conclusion that she would top the Money Makers list," a Billboard spokesman said.

Other celebrities to make it to the top 10 included Country star Taylor Swift earning $ 20.7 million, Michael Buble $ 19.8 million, Eagles $ 18.3 million, Black Eyed Peas $ 16.8 million and Sir Paul MCCartney with $ 14.1 million.
