The Most Powerful Celebrities in The World
I don't know why I care. For some reason, every year when Forbes releases their list of the most powerful celebrities in the country, I have to look through the entire thing.
According to Forbes, the top ten most powerful celebrities in 2012 are:
- Jennifer Lopez
- Oprah Winfrey
- Justin Bieber
- Lady Gaga
- Britney Spears
- Kim Kardashian
- Katy Perry
- Tom Cruise
- Steven Spielberg
The highest rated athlete on the list is Tiger Woods at number 12.
Forbes uses a combination of the money each celebrity raked in in the last year, their TV/Radio presence, press ranking, as well as their online and social networking presence.
