Move over, Oprah! Beyonce is world's most powerful celebrity
There's a reason why they call her Queen Bey.
Beyonce has seized the crown in Forbes Celebrity 100, the magazine reported Monday, bumping off Oprah Winfrey as the world’s most powerful celebrity. Besides an estimated $115 million in annual revenue since last June, the ranking is a measure of media mentions, social media status and overall societal impact — and Beyonce rules.
It’s been a stellar year for the pop star who shocked the world by dropping a title album with no promotion, endorsed brands like H&M and Pepsi and ran her own fashion business. While she just wrapped up a 95-stop tour collecting $2.4 million a pop, according to Pollstar, she's on the move again this summer with her hubby, Jay-Z (No. 6 on Forbes’ list).
Oprah fell to No. 4 on the list after Beyonce, Lebron James and Dr. Dre. Ellen Degeneres, Floyd Mayweather, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Robert Downey Jr. round out the top 10.
