Justin Bieber Named Third Most Powerful Celeb In The World

Jennifer Lopez has topped the annual Forbes list of the 100 most powerful celebrities in the world, taking over from fellow pop singer Lady Gaga and beating out media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

The 42-year-old singer and actress who rose up through the entertainment world ranks from her humble birthplace of the Bronx, New York, jumped a surprising 50 places from last year’s list that measures power by entertainment related earnings, media visibility and social media popularity.

Forbes estimated Lopez’s earnings in the past 12 months at $52 million, through her gig as a judge on the popular American Idol television talent show, a new clothing line and an upcoming tour.

Winfrey, who has admitted struggling with her OWN TV network after ending The Oprah Winfrey Show syndicated TV chat show last year after 25 years, kept her No. 2 slot from last year, earning an estimated $165 million.

Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, 18, also stayed at No. 3 where he debuted last year, earning $55 million, with Forbes reporting he has become a serious investor whose portfolio includes music streaming service Spotify.
