Lady Gaga's 'The Fame Monster' was the biggest selling album of 2010.

The 'Telephone' singer's record - a repackaged version of her earlier disc, 'The Fame', with an additional eight tracks - sold 5.8 million copies across the globe, according to the United World Chart, compiled by website mediatraffic.de.

Upon hearing the news Gaga tweeted, writing: "'The Fame Monster' was named the best-selling album of 2010!

"I'm so excited for the future, believe + work hard, you will achieve your dreams (sic)."

The eccentric singer's album beat Eminem, who's 'Recovery' sold 5.7 million copies to land him in second place on the chart, while Canadian teen singing sensation Justin Bieber came in third with 5.6 million sales of his 'My World' albums.

Gaga also said she will be making an announcement about her new album 'Born This Way' at midnight on New Year's Eve.

Meanwhile, the singer has been defended by John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, after fans of her ex-husband's band The Beatles criticised Gaga or playing a piano belonging to the star.

Yoko told the Daily Mail newspaper: "I think her playing John's piano was wonderful. Because she's an artist, she's fearless and she pushes every limit, which we both always adored."
