Beyonce Tops Forbes’ Most Powerful Celebrity List
The 32-year-old singer, who recently kicked off her On the Run summer tour with husband Jay Z, has been named Forbes‘s Most Powerful Celebrity.
That power stems largely from dollars and cents. Thanks to her own lucrative tour (each of the 95 shows earned an estimated $2.4 million), that surprise eponymous album that she released with no promotion, and some endorsements (Blue Ivy’s mom is still a Pepsi girl and collaborated with H&M), she pulled in a whopping $115 million over the last year. Beyonce, who was up from the No. 4 spot last year, also has what the magazine calls a high “impact score,” meaning that the Instagram lover is an influencer in the entertainment industry and on culture.
