Forbes magazine has released its annual Celebrity 100 list of the “most powerful people in the entertainment business” and Oprah Winfrey lost her number-one spot to Lady Gaga. And Justin Bieber came in third!
Forbes reports that Lady Gaga earned the top spot this year due to her 32 million Facebook fans, 10 million Twitter followers and the $90 million she earned touring.
In addition, Lady Gaga had 1 milllion digital downloads of her single “Born This Way” in only five days!
Oprah has only lost the number-one spot three times now, in the past seven years, but she’s still not far away from Gaga in the lineup.
Oprah reportedly earned $290 million last year. That’s actually a reduction of $25 million, partly due to her now smaller paycheck (from SiriusXM), but she stills makes a lot of money from the shows she started, like Dr. Phil and Rachael Ray!
And Justin made his debut on the list this year at the age of 17 earning $53 million. The Biebs has been busy making money with concerts, music sales and his 3-D documentary movie.
“Baby,” Justin’s first hit song, has surpassed 500 million views on YouTube — a record!
