Mother Monster snags a high honor from Forbes despite being under the radar for most of 2013 so far! Hey everyone you are tuned into ClevverMusic here on YouTube. Lady Gaga, who has been taking some time off because of emergency hip surgery, landed in 2nd place on the honorary Forbes "Most Powerful Celebrities" list for 2013 with earnings of $80 million dollars. The Celebrity 100 list measures money and fame, revealing the celebrity salaries between June 2012 and June 2013. Gaga is known among other things, for taking a stand when it comes to individuality and equal rights, and in fact just earlier today the singer came back to Twitter to stand up for marriage equality tweeting, "Who will be our Abe Lincoln today? Who will make the choice of FREEDOM FOR ALL. #SCOTUS." Gaga made her first appearance on the infamous Forbes list just three years ago in 2010, where she was ranked at number four. In 2011 she got the number one spot, and just last year in 2012 she was at number five. Since Gaga has been seen back in the studio working on her new album ARTPOP, we are sure she will be back at that number one spot next year! But who beat out our favorite monster this year? Well, you may have heard of her. She goes by the name of Ms. Oprah Winfrey, earning $77 million dollars, rising from the number two spot last year! Also making the top five are Steven Spielberg at number three earning $100 million, Beyoncé at number four earning $53 million, and Madonna at number five earning $125 million dollars. We like that four out of the top five are women! Someone who surprisingly dropped off of the list is British singer Adele! Forbes explains in a release that The Celebrity 100 measures money and fame, including estimated earnings over the last 12 months, and how often each celebrity is mentioned in print, on TV and in social media. So what are your thoughts on this list? Is there anyone you would have added or taken off? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below! I'm Misty Kingma, thank you so much for watching!
