    What has Michelle Obama done to make her powerful? There are regular, everyday people that have done more than her!

  • yolanda

    Michelle Obama has lived like royalty since becoming First Lady by screwing over the taxpayer. She has no sympathy for real hard working Americans!!!!

  • laverdadduele

    Powerful my a s s. These lists are BS, it’s all about who has the best PR agent.

  • yuck

  • GHU

    yes Lady gaga is powerful not for doing anything innovative or life changing but because she has marketing power. she has a bunch of sheep buying her songs/albums multiple times & buying all the products she puts her name on I mean products she “created”. also creating fake accounts to put her in the lead of social sites. All these fame whoring antics & coping other powerful musicians but she’ll maintain its not about the money she’s doing to make her fans stronger lmao. weak impressionable lil retards.

  • Mary Poppins

    Yay, number 29 for Angelina Jolie. You go girl.

  • alisa

    @Slig o lambert ^_^cute: what country are you from?

  • gracie

    This Forbes list is ridiculous, I like Beyonce but to put Gaga and Beyonce before Angie, Oprah and other far more deserved names is a laugh. Before you judge a person to be one of the most powerful in the world, shouldn’t you take into account their global influence and their contributions in improving the world we live in and not just on the number of records they sell, unless wearing meat dresses and crazy outfits counts as making a difference in the world.

  • DollsFkcer

    How Oprah & Beyoncé can be first and second most powerful celebrity and go #18 on most powerful Women behind Lady Gaga ?
    This is bullshit Forbes -_-’ ! And Ellen more powerful than Anna Wintour ? Cut The Crap ! And do they how much Angelina Jolie is more powerful than that and where’s Madonna ? Urghhh

  • DollsFkcer

    @gracie: Beyoncé is half of the most powerful couple is the industry so her place is well deserved and as much as i hate GaGa she doesn’t just walk around in meat dress and Louboutins ! She is a person who is talking peace and aceptance everywhere she goes . Oprah is Oprah , and Angelina should defenetly be higher , she’s the most talk actress of our day , and she’s a wonderful helper / person for the world .

    Lady Gaga more powerful than Oprah? noe that’s a joke…. I think forbes should do more research in order to put a list together. Oprah is more powerful than anyone at the moment, and Madonna should defenetly be higher than Lady Gaga.

  • Jenny Poo

    Where’s Jennifer Aniston? Hollywood A-list and America’s Sweatheart?? Slipping into obscurity thats where!! People are finally seeing her for what she really is..just another tv sitcom actress who’s been dumped by Brad, Vince, Jon,Gerard, Paul, and Justin really soon, because she is a self- absorbed 42 year old twit who can’t move forward in life and who always wants to be on magazine covers naked, says “ret@rd” on live TV..

  • yas

  • Corey

  • Lynn

  • Vilhelmina

    I like Beyonce but to put Gaga and Beyonce before Angie, Oprah and other far more deserved names is a laugh.

    I think Forbes should do more research in order to put a list together. Oprah is more powerful than anyone at the moment, and Madonna should defenetly be higher than Lady Gaga.
