Lady Gaga Tops Forbes’ Celebrity 100 List

Forbes’ World’s Most Powerful Celebrities list was published today, and the number one spot belongs to Lady Gaga. Gaga displaced Oprah at the top slot by earning a ton of money ($90 million for her tour) and pushing her influence with social media.

The Forbes list factors in earnings, social networking savvy and media exposure, so it’s not hard to see why Justin Bieber is third, but the two behind him – U2 and Elton John – are a little more puzzling. Other celebrities that we were surprised to see on the list include Katherine Heigl at 89, Mark Harmon at 98 and Tim McGraw at 61.

All we have to say is that Harmon is lucky people somehow consider NCIS worth their time (spoiler to every single episode: They catch the guy).
