Jennifer Lopez tops the Forbes list!


Our GLAMOUR Hair cover girl, Jennifer Lopez has just been named the world’s most powerful celebrity! The 42-year-old star has knocked Lady Gaga off the top spot of Forbes magazine’s annual Celebrity 100 list, thanks to her high public profile and endeavours in music, movies, and as a judge on ‘American Idol’, with her income over the last 12 months reaching a staggering $52 million.


The Celebrity 100, which placed TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey second and Justin Bieber third, is based on income over a 12 month period and fame, as defined by a media presence across all platforms, as well as social media power as determined by prolificness on Facebook and Twitter. 


Jen’s fame was boosted by her 46 major magazine covers, topping People’s 2011 Most Beautiful list and being named as a Glamour Woman of the Year. The Celebrity 100 includes film and television actors, TV personalities, models, athletes, authors, musicians and comedians.
