Lady Gaga was the Magic Formula for Magazines in 2010Memo to all magazines struggling to compete at newsstands: Go Gaga. According to a study by WWD, magazines featuring Lady Gaga on their covers sold like hotcakes in 2010, easily beating out those from Taylor Swift and Rihanna.

Gaga was busy in 2010, posing for Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Elle and Cosmopolitan (there's a rumored big-time cover for the March issue of Vogue on the way). Not only that, but each issue she graced the cover of racked up huge numbers.

Her famed Rolling Stone cover, for which she wielded two automatic weapons in a thong, was the top-selling issue of the magazine last year.
