Lady GaGa is the most powerful celebrity 2011 (Justin Bieber is in top 3)!
Forbes has released their annual list of Top 100 most powerful celebrities. Surpassing all possible expectations, last year’s #4 Lady GaGa tops the list this year, beating Oprah Winfrey for the first time in the last four years. Oprah, who comes second, is followed by the youngest man on the list, Top 100’s newbie Justin Bieber.
Just like any other year, Forbes has ranked the celebs according to their estimate earnings in the past 12 months, as well as media and online exposure.
Lady GaGa, who made some $90 million last year, is the ultimate Internet queen with 32 million Facebook fans and 10 million Twitter followers. Her other records include 1 million digital downloads of ‘Born This Way’ within the first week of its release.
Oprah Winfrey is the biggest money maker in the top 3 with $290 million earned last year. Justin eared five times less but he’s got a devoted army of Beliebers on Facebook and Twitter, so this factor has contributed to his place in the celebrity ranking 2011.
The Top 10 Most Powerful Celebrities 2011 is full of surprises. Like, this year’s #5 and #8 Elton John and Bon Jovi were missing in last year’s top 100, while Mr. Embarrassment Tiger Woods hasn’t lost an ounce of his celebrity influence since 2010, coming at #6 this year (he was #5 in 2010).
