Madonna and Lady Gaga have grossed the most money in 2013 of musicians. Madonna pulled in $45 million more than Gaga to be crowned top money making musician of 2013.
Madonna made $125 million in 2013 based mostly on her MDNA tour which grossed $305 million last year, tour merchandise, her Material Girl clothing line and her Truth Or Dare perfume.
Lady Gaga pulled in $80 million, $160 million pulled in by her last tour. If she was able to finish her tour before suffering a hip injury, she would have grossed $200 million but still falling short of number one held by Madonna.
1. Madonna $125 Million
2. Lady Gaga $80 Million
3. Bon Jovi $79 Million
4. Toby Keith $65 Million
5. Coldplay $64 Million
All of the top 5 money makers have been touring which is where a tremendous majority of their money has come from.

Diagnosis: Notice how none were from record sales....
Lady Gaga took to Saturday Night Live where she hosted and performed at the show, taking shots at herself and pretending to cover Madonna's "Express Yourself". She then performed "Do What U Want" with R. Kelly and sexed things up.
R, Kelly was rocking the Versace while Gaga tried to simulate a happy J and oral sex on Mr. Bump N Grind. I thought Gaga would look better at it. Eh.
This song is Gaga's best in years and was cool that Gaga was able to get R. Kelly to duet it with her on the show.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Their mics were on during all their acrobatics.
Many think Lady Gaga is from another planet. In 2015, Lady Gaga plans to perform in space. Will it be a homecoming?
Lady Extravaganza will be on-board a Virgin Galactic space shuttle to perform a one track during the 2015 Zero G Colony tech festival.
The festival is expected to be over 3 days in outer space.
So far, Gaga is dead serious about this happening.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Space.....Gaga singing....the final frontier....
A week before her album is released, Lady Gaga has fired her manager. Her former manager is stating that they parted ways. So in other words, fired.
Troy Carter was there when Gaga launched her career and saw her career explode. We wonder how soon until Carter files a lawsuit against Gaga.
In other Gaga related news, she will be hosting and performing on the November 16th. This is Gaga's 3rd time on the show but the first hosting.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Justin Timberlake parted ways with his PR team right before the release of the first "20/20 Experience" right?
Our photo of the moment is of Lady Gaga at the YouTube awards on Sunday dressed up like the cover art for "Dope" her latest single.
Usually, we tell people to smile for pictures. This time, we think it is better if she doesn't.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Oh Lady Extravaganza.....
Lady Gaga has released "Dope" from her album "ArtPop" due in stores next week. Is the world ready for the return of Lady Extravaganza?
The ballad is pretty chill and the cover artwork...not so much. She wore the same outfit to the YouTube Awards.-DocFB
Diagnosis: ArtPop appears to be all over the place. We will see if that is a good thing soon enough....
Less than a week after releasing "Do What You Want" with R. Kelly, Lady Gaga has released the audio to "Venus" and debuted "Gypsy" live, with all 3 songs to be released on her ArtPop album due in November.
Depending on what part of the world you live in, "Venus" should be available now on iTunes.
Lady Gaga has released "Do What U Want" featuring R. Kelly. The duet is featured on Gaga's "ArtPop" album due in stores November 11th.
The song is now available on iTunes.
As one of the few who really liked "Applause" I must say that "Do What U Want" featuring R. Kelly is even better, earning "Jam Of The Moment" status.
Let's hope that Gaga makes sure that R. Kelly is in the video. Could be all sorts of hotness!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Easily my favorite Gaga track since "Bad Romance" and "Edge Of Glory"....big time!
