Jennifer Lopez has been named the world's most powerful celebrity.
The 42-year-old star has knocked Lady Gaga off the top spot of Forbes magazine's annual Celebrity 100 list - at which she was placed number 50 last year - thanks to her high public profile and endeavours in music, movies, as a judge on 'American Idol' and other endorsement deals, with her income over the last 12 months reaching a staggering $52 million.
Jennifer's fame was boosted by her 23,000 press mentions, including appearing on 46 major magazine covers, topping People's 2011 Most Beautiful list and being named as a Glamour Woman of the Year.
Rounding out the top 10 on the Celebrity 100 - which includes film and television actors, TV personalities, models, athletes, authors, musicians and comedians- were Britney Spears in sixth place, one spot ahead of Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry in eighth, Tom Cruise, in ninth and Steven Spielberg at 10.
