Glenn Beck Moves Up on Forbes’ Most Powerful Celebrities List

Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey and Justin Bieber are at the top of Forbes’ annual Most Powerful Celebrities list. Unveiled today, the list is compiled based on earnings as well as TV, press, web and social rankings. So while JLo took home a healthy $52 million last year, that’s chump change compared to Glenn Beck, who, while #23 on the list, is #11 (tied with Elton John) in pay, taking home an estimated $80 million, more than Leonardo DiCaprio ($37M), Brad Pitt ($25) and Julia Roberts ($16M) combined. Beck moves up seven spots from last year’s list.

And if you haven’t seen it, go here to find out how Glenn Beck got on his path to prosperity, in the mediabistroTV series “My First Big Break” including how he almost quit radio to become a chef.
