Lady Gaga Tops Forbes Celebrity Power List

Lady Gaga Tops Forbes Celebrity Power ListLady Gaga has been announced by Forbes as the most powerful celebrity in the world. Forbes magazine’s annual Celebrity 100 Power List is based on earnings, fame and global exposure in the media.

Oprah Winfrey has held the top spot for the last four years but now she sits in second place behind Lady Gaga despite that Oprah’s earnings are still three times higher than Gaga’s. But Gaga is currently the most followed person on Twitter, this combined with her 32 million Facebook followers helped her knock Oprah from the top spot.

“Lady Gaga tops our power list not just because of her $90m (£56m) in earnings but also because of her 32m Facebook fans and 10m Twitter followers,”
a spokesman for the magazine tells Metro.

The complete top 10 is:

1. Lady GaGa

2. Oprah Winfrey

3. Justin Bieber

4. U2

5. Elton John

6. Tiger Woods

7. Taylor Swift

8. Bon Jovi

9. Simon Cowell

10. LeBron James

This Year’s list includes actors, athletes, models and comedians. Katy Perry made it onto the list for the first time at no.12, Johnny Depp followed her at No.13 and ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney came in at 20th.
