Forbes predict that the Poker Face hitmaker, who earned $64 million in 2010, is expected to double that figure with the release of her sophomore LP Born This Way in May and various products endorsed by GaGa.

The 24-year old's Monster Ball world tour is also expected to contribute to GaGa's earnings, with Hollywood Reporter claiming that she should earn $33 million from the shows in the first half of 2011.

Born This Way is expected to make $20-$30 million, with the website claiming that those figures could double if the LP reaches the heights of Michael Jackson's hit album Thriller, making GaGa a stadium headliner.
