How Much Is Lady Gaga Worth?
New York City-born and raised Lady Gaga may seem to be an overnight success story, launching a debut album in 2008 with two Billboard hits — “Just Dance” and “Poker Face.” She became one of the highest-paid women in music in 2018, largely thanks to her performance with Bradley Cooper in “A Star Is Born” and the subsequent hit single, “Shallow.”
Today, Celebrity Net Worth reports Lady Gaga’s net worth at $320 million.

A Star Is Born

She briefly attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts but dropped out as a sophomore to pursue her music career, performing on New York’s Lower East Side.
It seemed to work out well, as Gaga went on to earn anywhere from $30 million to $80 million or more annually through her music, acting and celebrity endorsement deals. A highly profitable Las Vegas residency, “Lady Gaga Enigma,” added to her annual earnings in 2018 and 2019. Gaga’s world tours alone were raking in hundreds of millions of dollars.
Fashion, Business and Real Estate
Gaga has also partnered with top fashion and makeup brands, including MAC, Versace and the Japanese company Shiseido, working as a celebrity endorser and spokesperson. She also launched highly profitable fragrance lines in 2012 and 2014.
As with many high net worth individuals, some of Gaga’s fortune sits tied up in real estate. She owns a $23.5 million Malibu mansion and a second home that cost her $5.25 million in Hollywood Hills.
Celebrity Net Worth reports that Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation helps the talented star contribute both time and money to mental health awareness and LGBTQIA+ causes. She worked together with Global Citizen in 2020 to produce a virtual concert series, “Together At Home,” which provided entertainment for those on lockdown while raising $130 million to aid in coronavirus relief efforts spearheaded by the World Health Organization.

And in case you were wondering, yes, Gaga’s net worth exceeds her “A Star Is Born” co-star Bradley Cooper’s.
