Lady Gaga debuted at an impressive No. 4 on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, while Oprah Winfrey reclaimed her top spot, dropping last year's queen Angelina Jolie to a meager No. 18. The top five "World's Most Powerful Celebrities:"
- Oprah Winfrey: earned $315 million over the past year
- Beyonce Knowles: climbed up two spots from last year
- James Cameron: can probably thank Avatar for his high ranking
- Lady Gaga: the top-ranked newcomer to the list (other debuts include Conan O’Brien, the Black Eyed Peas, and Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson)
- Tiger Woods: somehow managed to remain in the top five...for now
Notably absent from this year’s list: Will Smith (No. 11 last year) and 50 Cent (No. 50 last year). For the complete list, click here
