Pop sensation Lady Gaga regains number one spot on Forbes' list of highest-earning celebrities under 30 despite her hip injury which forced her to cancel several gigs.

The 27-year-old singer raked in approximately USD 80 million between June 2012 and June 2013 after she was named best-paid celebrities under 30 in 2011. Other young celebrities who make it into this year's top three are Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, reported Ace showbiz.

The 'Paparazzi' hitmaker would earn more if she had not scrapped the remaining gigs on Born This Way Ball tour because of hip injury. Forbes noted that the tour grossed USD 168 million through January.

Her new album ARTPOP is coming out in November and she will cash in more following the album's release.

Forbes' team, which talked to agents, managers, producers, executives and others to compile the list, put world-renowned DJ Calvin Harris in number four with USD 46 million in earnings. Rihanna takes number five spot after collecting USD 43 million.
