Today, Forbes published their list the world’s most powerful celebrities.
This list–which includes film and television actors, TV personalities, models, athletes, authors, musicians and comedians–is based on money and fame.
Fame-according to Forbes- is measured in media visibility in print, television, radio and online, plus social media power, calculated by looking at each celebrity’s presence on Facebook and Twitter.
The earnings consist of pretax income between May 1, 2011, and May 1, 2012. Management, agent and attorney fees are not deducted. Forbes has been publishing the list annually since 1999.
