Jennifer Lopez’s $52-a-year earnings and Justin Bieber’s mass of Twitter followers have helped them top Forbes’ list of the most powerful people in pop.
The list-loving business mag publish their annual Celebrity 100 this month and sadly Tulisa is no where to be seen. DOES SEXINESS COUNT FOR NOTHING IN THE WORLD OF BUSINESS?!?!?
Cover star Bieber (3) is the only male popstar in the list’s top-flight with Rihanna (4), last year’s chart-topper Lady Gaga (5), Britney Spears (6), and Katy Perry (8) all appearing in the Top 10.
The list is compiled based on a celebrity’s money, TV, press, web and social rankings. “To be considered a real success, [celebrities] needs to sell clothes, hawk fragrances–maybe even invest in technology startups,” suggests the magazine. Here are Popjustice we’d settle for a half-decent album every 18 months but each to their own.
Other noteworthy inclusions on the Celeb 100 are Adele (24), Lil Wayne (69) and semi-bald dubstep don Skrillex (92).
