Angelina Jolie Most Powerful Celebrity

According to Forbes Magazine

ts-angelina-jolie-pregnantAngelina Jolie knocked Oprah Winfrey off her throne to claim the number one spot. Oprah held the top spot for the last two years. I think the real reason she got dethroned this year was because of last year’s “Favorite Things” show. The audience lucky enough to get the golden ticket to that show thought they hit the jackpot like all the other “Favorite Things” audiences had. Instead of Oprah’s usual over the top show they were treated to a do it yourself Christmas, and let’s be honest, no one wants that shit.

Here is Forbes Magazine‘s top ten:

#1 – Angelina Jolie
#2 – Oprah Winfrey
#3 – Madonna
#4 – Beyonce Knowles
#5 – Tiger Woods
#6 – Bruce Springsteen
#7 – Steven Spielberg
#8 – Jennifer Aniston
#9 – Brad Pitt
#10 – Kobe Bryant

OK, now I have a well documented dislike of Jennifer Aniston, but how in the hell is she even in the top ten of this list? When is the last time she had a successful movie? For that matter how did Angelina Jolie get the top spot? I like Angelina, I’ve liked most of her movies but she hasn’t had big movie in awhile.

Other stars to make the list are

#13 – Britney Spears
#20 – Tom Cruise
#26 – Stephenie Meyer
#29 – Miley Cyrus
#40 – Ellen DeGeneres
#44 – Ryan Seacrest (Seriously?)
#71 – Reese Witherspoon
#82 – Katherine Heigl
#83 – Jon Stewart
#93 – Steve Carell

There are a lot of people on this list I think Forbes is giving to much credit to. I guess they had a hundred spots to fill so there was bound to be some filler. I’m just thankful the Pratt-Douchebags didn’t make the list.

  1. Supposedly they have some kind of algorithm (cue images of Al Gore doing the watusi in 4-3-2-1…) that takes into account magazine covers and other media saturation, as well as actual, you know, profitable shows.

    So that’s how Aniston got on there. Either that, or St. Angie threw her a bone. She’s got that kind of power, I hear.

    And I love your “Favorite Things” conspiracy theory!! 🙂

    Also – click to edit rawwwwwx. That is all. Unless I change my mind and decide to edit. WHICH I CAN DO NOW. Ooohh, yeahhh.
