Lady Gaga has topped the Forbes 2013 list of 'Most Powerful Musicians'.

The 'Marry The Night' singer was named Number One on the annual list, which is based on earnings, social media and press mentions.

Gaga's 'Born This Way World Tour' grossed an impressive $168 million, despite it being cut short due to the singer's hip injury, and she has a huge social media following, including 38million Twitter followers and 58 million fans on Facebook.

Following behind in second place is Beyonce, whose current 'Mrs. Carter World Tour' grosses $2 million per city, Madonna is at Number Three and Taylor Swift is at Number Four. Bon Jovi complete the Top Five.

Coldplay are the only British musicians to feature in the Top 10. Their world tour pulled in a massive $3 million per city, but their standing in the 'Most Powerful Musicians' list comes with a little help from their celebrity friends and family. Frontman Chris Martin's wife Gwenyth Paltrow and their friends Beyoncé and Jay-Z helped the group ascend the list.

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga's forthcoming new album 'ARTPOP' will be "pretty fucking cool", according to her producer Zedd. The German DJ has been working with the singer on her new LP and, in an interview with Rolling Stone, said they had embraced an "experimental approach" to making music together.

"I'm really, really excited for people to hear what we came up with," he said. "I just really can't imagine they would not like it, to just say it straight up. I think the stuff we've made is pretty fucking cool."

Gaga is expected to release 'ARTPOP' later this year.
