Lady GaGa Most Powerful Female Celebrity

According to Forbes, it is official!

Lady GaGa is not only The Queen of Pop, but now she is also the world's most powerful female celebrity.

The list, which comes out annually, is usually one filled with politicians and CEOS, but due to heavy influence and strong presence during major events, celebrities tend to sprinkle over too.

Coming in at #11 (out of 100), GaGa surpasses Beyonce (#18) and even Oprah Winfrey (#14)!

The women are ranked on a three-metric system of dollars, traditional and social media components, and power base points.

There were a few other celebrities making the list too: Angelina Jolie (#29), Diane Sawyer (#47), Ellen DeGeneres (#55), Anna Wintour (#69), and J.K. Rowling (#61).

GaGa has been super busy lately preparing for her very exciting VMA surprise.

We're like a little kid about to go on their favorite roller coaster, we can't wait at all!

    Forbes??????????????????/ Noooooottttttttt Fooorrrrbbeess!!!!!!!



  2. 2

    Quite an honor. I knew she was powerful; but didn't realize she'd hit that upper echelon. Congratulations to her.



  3. 3

    BREAKING NEWS: Lady Gaga took a massive dump!
    Perez, please find something else to write about. I like Gagas music and all but its just pathetic the way you act like a dog wagging your tail, waiting for her to throw u a bone. xoxo



  4. 4

    Im afraid she might not go away, she seems way to full of herself.



  5. 5

    Its all about social media for her.

    And Perez, quit calling her the Queen of Pop..her album made it to #1 thanks to cheating and shes barely in the top 20 now.



  6. 6

    Holy fuckin' publicist!! I hope she's paying your fart filled ass a shitload of money to write these bullshit non-stories while staying away from all the negative/true stories out there about her!!



  7. 7

    I don't know if I'm the only one that finds this list really stupid. Does America really care which celebrity made the most money? I don't. Seriously, as much as I love Lady Gaga, stop calling her the Queen of Pop, she really isn't. It's Madonna.



  8. 8

    I'd love to know what kind of kick back she gives Perez for the constant positive press. Remember how Perez didn't even speak a word when Born this Way was named a rip off of Express Yourself? GaGa will NEVER be the Queen of Pop, that title will forever belong to Madonna as she's the most influential and successful female artist in history. With the most records sold, most top 10 singles, most successful tour and a 30 year career Her Madgesty reigns supreme. When Madonna tours and puts out An album she's always on this list.



  9. 9

    It has been 3 weeks and still you do not mention she was found guilty of copyright and publishing infringment.



  10. 10

    I interned for a magazine my senior year of college. Most of these things are pushed HARD by publicists and sometimes paid for. There's no way in hell Lady Gaga is more powerful than Oprah.



  11. 11

    I canttt waiiit :D



  12. 12

    Yeah you wish.
    Actually, she's less important than the grocery lady to me.



  13. 13

    Es obvio nadie le gana a Gaga ella es la reina del universo y dominara los VMA´s, pudrete tonta Britney puta



  14. 14

    Wow.. how great number 11.. because idiots kiss her ass in the media just like they do Kim K.. so it doesn't mean shit to me.. everyone gets fascinated by the stupidest shit it seems…
    p.s. is she trying to go for a more normal look now? I mean it is nice and all but she has a motivation behind pretty much everything, so i'm wondering wtf it is this time.. hmm:/

Mantener su culto judío de nariz fea líder! Ha! Y mantener la descarga de canciones. El líder de su perra fea necesidades de una canción de éxito! :-)

    Boo Hoo LOL



  20. 20

    How you dare to call her the Queen of Pop, I like her, she's great but not to call her the Queen of Pop



  21. 21

    p.s. gaga queen of pop?
    her second album flopped…
    with one number one single… and the rest in the toilet..
    actually i would say this year katy perry is the TEMPORARY queen of pop
    she achieved more than Gaga ( and made history)… and didnt need all the bullshit that gaga uses to get it! :)
    Work Katy!! LOL



  22. 22

    Gaga is not the queen of anything. Period!



  23. 23

    LMAO, if she's the queen of pop what are Katy Perry and Adele? Sales wise, they consistently beat her ass! And their personalities don't make you want to throw up, either. Forbes is full of shit.

    What Michael Jackson records has she broke? Oh none, Katy Perry did LOL. You and I is number 35 on billboards. Some queen of Pop! Only one number one from her latest album! With all her massive promotion, that's such a flop! Only one number one from the album of the decade by the Queen of Pop! LOL! BS



  24. 24

    … and at least katy perry and beyonce can dance! LOL!



  25. 25

    go back to your old format! each page has like two posts. it's crap.



  26. 26

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – god you have absolutely no life do you? I mean do you comment on every gaga post?? All you do is write stupid shit on everything and the word "turd" that you seem to use all the time is getting old. Please find a hobby



  27. 27

    She looks like Lindsay Lohan's mom in this pic.



  28. 28

    Re: ilovejoomayun – you think katy perry can dance??? bahahaha so laughable



  29. 29

    Wow, she is actually covering her ass and tits and actually looks presentable.



  32. 32

    Re: brian34 – Well, she is QUEEN of flops!! Lol!! You gotta agree that any bitch that promises her SECOND album will ”change lives” and be ”the album of the decade” and then puts out a flop album and releases 27 singles, hoping that one of them will click with the masses is a huge flop!! I just hope that her Elton John tribute 'You and I' will soar to the top of the charts!! Bitch needs a hit, now!! Lmfao!!



  33. 33

    Re: TyVentura – Lol!! :-)

    "She’s a nice girl – I just feel very honoured that she wanted to sing my song. I used to scream for her in Times Square and now I work for her. When I was 13 she was the most provocative performer of my time. I love her so much! Britney certainly doesn’t need any freakin’ tips from me! Britney Spears is the queen of pop. I was learning from her."

    - Lady GagGa, tells Now magazine, about writing Quicksand for Britney's new album, Circus

    Madonna, took some time out of her busy schedule to catch the "Poker Face" singer's show at New York's Terminal 5 on Saturday. Gaga will also be happy to hear that the legendary singer slipped out unnoticed. "I was hoping and praying she would get out safely," she said. "If she got spotted she would have been trampled like the queen she is."

  46. 46

    hahaha HA, yeah! she looks like a bunny in that picture…
    p.s. Madonna is still alive, wow?

    Re: gregoryschmo – Angela Merkel is No1. Perez is a moron



  53. 53

    Gaga - Queen of Pop! Ngeek!!!!
    Don't worry people, given 3 years… Perez will be kissing "Selenita's ass" by then.
    Gaga-loo (the wifey) would had gone to oblivion!
    Hahahaha!!!!!!!!!



  54. 54

    Ya know, in this pic I kinda feel sorry for her. She looks so vulnerable with those two bunny-rodent teeth sticking out in the front. More power to her and God bless all the ugly girls with overbites. Obviously, they too, can conquer the world! :)



  55. 55

    It's a sad day when any singer- not just Lady Gaga, although I can't stand her- is named as such. What a great way to teach girls the best way to become powerful is to writhe around half-naked onstage the way the majority of performers do today.

  56. china says – reply to this


    56

    tranny caca is the ugliest bitch and the biggest shithead. powerful? not so much.
    she can keep her army of little morons to herself, the rest of the world despises this xerox costume hanger.



  57. 57

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Very valid point!! I didn't think of it that way. lol



  58. 58

    Too bad no one is talkink about gaga this year!! its all about Britney Bitches!!



  59. 59

    Re: china – *bows*



  60. 60

    Excuse me? Sense when Beyonce is powerfull? 4 is a flop, who run the world (girls) floped, best thing i never had floped, 1+1 is a song written by a 2 year old that also floped, and Gaga's album of the decade is more the flop of the decade…the only one who actually deserves to be here is Oprah…



  61. 61

    Born this way is a HUGE FLOP, its a freaking madonna copy, Judas floped, TEOG floped, You & 1 will also flop, so she ain't powerfull…shes just flopfull



  62. 62

    Oh by the way perez theres a mistake…shes the world's most powerfull MALE…correct that perezie



  63. 63

    The post should have been about who the #1 was.. not about number 11.. who the fk cares about #11.. everyone knows when you talk about things.. its always the Top 10… But again, Perez is sucking her dick so what would we expect.



  64. 64

    Queen?!?! Ahahahahahahah!!!!!!!!!!!! All she does is pretend to NOT lip-sync. There's only room for 1 Queen..and It's Britney, Bitch!

  66. 66

    Madonna is the queen you mong,



  67. 67

    LMAO the HIV must be seeping into your brain because that tranny is NOT the Queen of Pop and never will be. Her album is a flop and topped the charts because it was sold in the bargain bin for 99 cents. Oh and I love how the tranny is trying to look like a Barbie doll with the blonde hair and trying to move away from the shocking clothes. Honey, you will always look like the man you are so stop trying.



  68. 68

    Re: FS – Since when is Angela Merkel a popstar or an actress (I mean besides the everyday acting in politics)? Lady Gaga is the most powerful female clebrity, Mrs. Merkel is a politician and thus they can't be compared and since she's the first popstar to appear in the list Lady Gaga is #1 among the clebrities.



  69. 69

    stop sucking Gaga's dick Perez.

    Re: MsJules – thank you, well said.



  71. 71

    Re: comparini – veo quien es la puta acá… pq todavia comparas Britney a Gaga? no saben que no estan en el mismo nivel? las personas ya estan fartas de ella en tan poco tiempo, por eso te sientes presionada. debes ser una chiquita de 13 años, gorda y fea, por eso quiere tanto a la "reina de la fealdad absoluta" y odias tanto a la verdadera Reina del Pop. STFU child!



  72. 72

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – heeey i'm surprised that you actually speak spanish =) where u from?



  73. 73

    Oh yeah, shes flopping so hard! XD hahaha I'd live to see POPSCIDICTATOR Anywhere on that list XD Thats fucking awesome. And its true :)



  74. 74

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Shit. I was just answering a question. But Popsicle, I love your ass. Your persona is fierce and fabulous — just like that weave! Keep makin' Perez more money. Your his #1 fan, don't be ashamed girlfriend!



  75. 75

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Also, they named Justin Timberlake the PRINCE of Pop with MJ as King. Get your facts straight, sista.
