gagascent.jpgLady Gaga was the queen of the music charts this year, and with two top-selling albums, the eccentric performer has been named Billboard's top artist of 2010!

Not since Chris Brown's chart-busting success back in 2006 has a performer risen from new artist to top artist that quickly. Leave it to Gaga to break even more records. Loves it!

The rankings are based on Billboard's year-end music recaps, and Bad Romance is only one of four Gaga songs that made the Hot 100 Songs roundup.

Taylor Swift is Billboard's #2 artist of the year. We have a feeling she's celebrating, and sharing, her success with new beau, Jake Gyllenhaal. Cute!

The Top New Artist award has been given to Ke$ha. Her trashtastic tune TiK ToK spent nine weeks at #1 on the weekly Hot 100 list.

2010 is the year of the ladies!
