Lady Gaga Projected to Make $100 Million in 2011.

That's a lot of zeros. Lady Gaga, known for her flamboyant outfits and personality on top of her infectious pop hits, is on track to make $100 million this year, according to Forbes.

The 'Poker Face' singer is set to make almost $40 million more than she did in 2010, making her the seventh-highest paid musician in the world, and just $1 million behind hip-hop powerhouse Jay-Z.

How did she earn so much money? Touring, touring, touring. Lady Gaga's shows command a much higher average ticket price ($102) than other current acts, and she put on a whopping 138-stop tour last year.

Experts estimate Gaga's album sales will also significantly boost her earnings. She'll release her next album, the highly-anticipated 'Born This Way,' in May and she could earn up to $15 million from record sales alone. Her last album, 'The Fame' sold over 12 million copies.
