Lady Gaga, Beyoncé Among Forbes' Most Powerful Women in the World
Lady Gaga and Beyoncé’s domination of pop culture has landed them among politicians, CEOs, cultural icons, billionaires, and entrepreneurs on Forbes’ annual 100 Most Powerful Women list.
The “Born This Way” singer is the most powerful female celebrity in the world, according to the magazine. She sits at #11, beating out power players including Oprah Winfrey (#14) and Angelina Jolie (#29). Gaga reportedly earned $90 million in the past year and has close to 13 million Little Monsters following her on Twitter.
Not far behind is her “Telephone” collaborator Beyoncé, who sits pretty at #18. The 29-year-old singer raked in $35 million in the last year due in part to her endorsement deals with L’Oreal, DirecTV, VIZIO, and more.
The superstar singers join the powerful company of women including Hillary Clinton (#2), Michelle Obama (#8), Ellen DeGeneres (#55), Gisele BÃ¼ndchen (#60), and Anna Wintour (#69).
