However, GaGa also topped the ‘Best Fashion’ list, pulling in 30% of votes for her daring and often outlandish ensembles. Close behind her were Rihanna with 25% and Nicki Minaj with 13%. The 25-year-old, who topped Forbes magazine’s list of the highest earning women in music for 2011, is currently preparing to record her new album, the follow-up to 2011’s Born This Way.
Lady GaGa has insisted that she is not responsible for the surge in dance music’s popularity, crediting the success instead to the genre beginning to see radio play.
