The 22-year-old tops Forbes magazine’s list of Highest Paid Celebrities Under 30, raking in an impressive $57 million between May 2011 and May 2012, thanks in part to each of her three albums selling an excess of five million units worldwide.

Rihanna (24) comes in at No. 3 with $53 million, with Lady Gaga (26), who held the No. 1 spot last year, coming in fourth place with $52 million. Katy Perry (27) rounds out the Top 5 with $45 million.
