Jennifer Lopez is the Most Powerful Celebrity in the World
Move over Lady Gaga, it's go J-Lo! Jennifer Lopez has topped Forbes magazine's list of the world's most powerful celebrities, replacing Lady Gaga who took the number one spot in 2011.
The singer/actress and American Idol judge raked in a jaw-dropping $52 million over the last year, helping her ace the list, which ranks stars according to their visibility, income and social media presence. Quite a leap there for Jen, who was on number 50 last year.
Taking second place this time around was TV titan Oprah Winfrey, while Justin Bieber claimed third spot.
Rounding out the top five were Rihanna and last year's number one Lady Gaga, while The X Factor's newest recruit Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg made up the top 10 for 2012.
Further down the list, there were more surprises. Taylor Swift, who came in at number 11, beat out Angelina Jolie (number 13) and Beyonce (number 16). Who would have thought!
