Divorce suits her well!
Jennifer Lopez may have suffered personal setbacks in the past 12 months, but her bank account and career have skyrocketed.
Forbes named Jennifer No. 1 in their yearly ranking of powerful celebrities, using an elegant synthesis of pretax income and headline-making antics (American Idol, music videos, Casper Smart) to decide who most dominated the entertainment world.
Following right on her heels is Oprah Winfrey, who out earned her at $165 million and also maintained a healthy public profile with her OWN network. The number three spot went to none other than Justin Bieber who seems to be as omnipresent as ever with a new album and relationship with Selena Gomez.
Lady Gaga who was No. 1 last year, still maintained a top five position in the number five slot, with Rihanna right ahead of her in number 4.
