Lady Gaga Tops Forbes Celebrity 100 List

by at . Comments

Starring in films, playing basketball, walking the catwalk, hosting TV shows and more, the world's most powerful celebrities are a wide-ranging bunch.

None of them match the overall powerfulness of Lady Gaga, however.

That's what Forbes concluded, toppling Oprah Winfrey from her No. 1 perch for only the third time in seven years on the magazine's Celebrity 100 list.

Gaga is there not just because of the $90 million she earned on tour, but because of her 32 million Facebook fans and 10 million Twitter followers.

The Little Monsters gobbled up 1 million digital downloads of "Born This Way", not to mention the countless products Lady Gaga features in her videos.

Oprah doesn't fall too far though. The daytime talk maven, who earned $290 million last year, comes in second. Justin Bieber debuts on the list at #3.

If this were 10 years ago Bieber would still be paying his dues in small clubs and schools, but thanks to the Internet, he's a sensation at the age of 17.

His first hit song, "Baby," has been viewed 500 million times, a YouTube record, and he vies with Gaga for the distinction of Twitter's most-followed.

I am so over her telling the world what a "freak" she was in high school & how no one liked her. She was on MTV's Boiling Point before she was famous & there was nothing "freakish" about her. She looked like any girl you would see in the mall. Hair in a ponytail, normal clothes & makeup. She is successful & talented but her looks are not unique or brand new. I've seen her look before, back in the 70's with Todd Rundgren, Leigh Bowery who did a fake birth on stage way before Gaga's egg entrance.
