Jennifer Lopez dethroned Lady Gaga as the world’s most powerful celebrity, according to a list released by Forbes magazine. U.S. television queen, Oprah Winfrey, ranks second from the “On the Floor” singer. Jennifer Lopez has been catapulted from the No. 50 last year, to head the ranking of the 100 most influential stars of film, television, music and sports.
JLo, who last summer broke Marc Anthony, has amassed over the last year, a profit of $52 million, more than double of the $25 million from the previous year, according to data compiled by Forbes. The Puerto Rican star took the throne from the New Yorker, Lady Gaga, which this year falls to fifth place. Lady Gaga’s revenues were $52 million and her influence on social networks is still tremendous.
The American television diva, Oprah Winfrey, is clinging to second place in the ranking even though her earnings plummeted 43% to 125 million dollars a year. The 18-year-old teen idol, Justin Bieber, hangs a bronze medal, thanks to his 21 million followers on Twitter. Bieber has sold 12 million albums sold so far, that have made the Canadian teen win $55 million. The fourth place goes to Rihanna, who has 53 million followers on Facebook. Rihanna also earned $53 million until last May.
