The World's Most Powerful Celebrities (Forbes)

Oprah Winfrey is the year's big winner. After being ousted by Angelina Jolie on last year's list (Jolie dropped to No. 18 this year), the Queen of all Media takes back her crown on Forbes' annual ranking of the world's ultra-famous. Winfrey earned $315 million over the past 12 months.
Um, what? $315 MILLION IN ONE YEAR!? That is insane. What does someone do with that much money? It's almost too much to fathom.

Anywho, while Oprah at #1 isn't exactly a shocker, I was surprised by a few in the next handful of the Power 100. Here's a peek at the Top Ten:
1. Oprah
2. Beyonce
3. James Cameron
4. Lady Gaga
5. Tiger Woods (thought they expect him to drop drastically next year)
6. Britney Spears
7. U2
8. Sandra Bullock
9. Johnny Depp
10. Madonna
