Jennifer Lopez Tops Forbes’ Celebrity 100
Jennifer Lopez‘s comeback is on a roll! This year, she takes the top spot on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 after earning $52 million. Lady Gaga — who was last year’s most powerful celebrity — earned the same as Lopez but considering she hasn’t toured as much as in the past, Gaga slips to the No. 5 slot. Lopez’s domination is primarily attributed to her popularity resurgence after joining the American Idol panel last year. Now in her second year, she’s been thrust back into the spotlight and released a new album called Love? and is prepping another major release this year. J.Lo also appears in the upcoming movie What to Expect When You’re Expecting — which hits theaters this weekend, May 18.
Oprah, Justin Bieber and Rihanna round out the Top 4. Despite Oprah’s hefty paycheck ouf $165 million, she could not unseat Jenny from the Block at the top. Forbes takes into consideration several factors, including social standing (on social media, that is), press, TV/Radio, etc.
Here’s the full Top 10:
