Another female artist who enjoyed a huge year in 2011 was Lady Gaga, whose second album 'Born This Way' was released in May and has since gone on to sell over eight million copies worldwide.
May also saw Cheryl Cole sacked as a judge on The X Factor USA – just twenty days after joining the panel.

In June, Beyonce followed in the footsteps of her husband Jay-Z and headlined the Glastonbury festival in Somerset.
The star's critically-acclaimed performance came just two months before she revealed that the couple were expecting their firs child together.
