Oprah Takes Top Spot On Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Celebrities List…Again
Women rocked Forbes’ annual 100 Most Powerful Celebrities list this year with media mogul extraordinaire Oprah Winfrey leading the pack.
The list—determined by a celebrity’s yearly earnings, along with the number of times his/her name appears on screen or in print and social media power—pit O at the top despite an $88 million dip in her earnings of $165 million and business fumbles with her Oprah Winfrey Network experiencing a sharp decline in ratings.
Still, her Harpo Productions spin-offs including The Rachael Ray Show and Dr. Oz raked in the mulah, along with her eye-popping and timely interviews with such subjects as Rihanna and Usher on OWN’s Next Chapter. Her portfolio also includes a stake in Sirius Radio and O magazine.
Also on the female-dominated top 10 list are Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Madonna, Taylor Swift and Ellen DeGeneres. Who run the world? Girls. – Nina Marrissa (@NinaMarrissa)
