Jennifer Lopez Named #1 On 'Forbes' 100 Most Powerful Celebrities List

Thu, May 17, 2012 2:14pm EST by 16 Comments

Jennifer Lopez more powerful than Justin Bieber? The ‘American Idol’ judge ranked #1 on the ‘Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Celebs in 2012 and Justin Bieber ranked #3! Do YOU agree with the rankings? Read on to find out who else is on the list.

Forbes magazine ranked Jennifer Lopez number one on the 2012 “Celebrity 100″ list.

The 42-year-old beat superstars Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Justin Bieber AND Oprah Winfrey. The magazine reports that the list is based on financial earnings from May 1, 2011, to May 1, 2012, and media exposure. J-Lo earned an estimated $52 million in the past year, according to the mag, and Justin Bieber earned $55 million.

Personally, I really don’t agree with this year’s rankings. I think that celebs like Justin, Lady Gaga, Oprah and even Kim Kardashian are more powerful than J-Lo. Justin has his own empire for crying out loud!

Here are the top 10 celebs on the “Celebrity 100″ list:

#1 Jennifer Lopez
#2 Oprah Winfrey
#3 Justin Bieber
#4 Rihanna
#5 Lady Gaga
#6 Britney Spears
#7 Kim Kardashian
#8 Katy Perry
#9 Tom Cruise
#10 Steven Spielberg

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you agree that J-Lo should be #1? Vote and weigh in below!

is hollywood life stupid?? JLo had a empire way before justin was even born. Jennifer deserves to be #1 because she on American Idol, music , movies, perfume, clothing line and a bunch of other stuff. People can say whatever they want about Jennifer but shes #1 for a reason.

You’re as worthless as tits on a nun. J-HO is even more worthless as that. Oprah is the only 1 worth anyone’s time. This country is so lame that these fuktards at Forbes actually go by the minority of bigmouth idiots that believe we ALL watch that crap. So they tell the rest of us that’s what’s what. Which is total brainwashing garbage.

How do these people come up with this list???
How is JLo the most powerful celebrity? Up until 2 yrs ago-prior to her coming on american idol she was almost extinct–i.e. no movies, no music. WTF where do these people come up with this stuff????
