Angelina Jolie bumps Oprah Winfrey on Forbes list of most powerful celebs

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)

Who's the one person capable of knocking Oprah Winfrey out of Forbes' top spot on the list of the world's most powerful celebs?

Angelina Jolie.

Winfrey, who topped the list last year, was dethroned and moved to the No. 2 spot on the annual Forbes list, which came out yesterday.

"Though viewership for the self-made billionaire's flagship chat fest, The Oprah Winfrey Show, continues to erode, her earning power remains resilient," the list said.

The Celebrity 100 list ranks the rich and famous based on media exposure and earnings over the past year.

Although finishing second to Jolie, Winfrey still is the highest earner on the list, raking in more than $275 miliion.

Madonna, Beyonce and Tiger Woods rounded out the top five on the list.

Has Angelina gone up the ratings, or has Forbes gone way down??? How many readers really give a damn about the so called humanitarian activities of this dame called Jolie? She gets googled for wearing shocking outfits, shocking behaviour, and messing up the lives and future of 6 kids by being unable to stay with a man whose divorce was attributable to her. Has Forbes analysed why she gets googled? Had Jade Goody not died, she too then should have made it to this list. Are these the reasons that make people become powerful?? What kind of power is this?? Of course, the chap at the 9th spot was also googled for the same reason. But what is shocking is not how did Jolie get to no.1 spot, but how did Forbes sink so low in their analysis???? One needs to verify Forbes books of accounts to find out what made them give this dubious character such a spot. Did Forbes want the attention?? Despite all the hungama, I have not bothered to research about Jolie. I was forced to watch her in the Good Shepherd which I went to see because of Matt Damon, else I wouldn't touch anything she had anything to do with, except maybe those kids (but then they are innocent!)

Forbes should know better than to insult everyone's intelligence with such cheapskate ratings.
