DrJays.com Debate: Is Angelina more powerful than Oprah?
Oprah Winfrey and Angelina Jolie
Forbes has just released their list of the The World’s 100 Most Powerful Celebrities with Angelina Jolie dethroning Oprah Winfrey for the number one spot.
According to the magazine, the measure of “power” these famous names have is based on “money and fame”.
Angelina’s fame obviously catapulted her to the top of the list, because her June 2008-June 2009 total earnings of $27 million pale in comparison to Oprah’s whopping $275 million.
“When it comes to the fame component, Angelina soars,” Lacey Rose, senior reporter for Forbes, said on this morning’s Today show. “There’s always a new story to tell with her.”
Rounding out the top five on the list are Madonna with $110 million (her Hard Candy tour made $280 million), Beyoncé ($87 million from album sales, performances, Deréon sales, endorsement deals) and Tiger Woods ($110 million mainly from endorsements and appearance fees).
Who do you think is the more “powerful” of the top two women?
