Beyoncé lands at No. 1 on Forbes Celeb 100 list

Beyoncé is on a roll, but she knocked Oprah from the top spot for the No. 1 celebrity this year.

Beyoncé is still at the top of her game. The singer has landed atop the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, which “rates the cultural icons success and influence against one another,” according to Billboard.

Bey’s tour was only a small part of her success from the year, but it brought in nearly $200 million. She also released a surprise album, which included “Drunk in Love,” a song that has now sold more than 1 million copies. Beyoncé’s self-titled fifth album was released exclusively on iTunes and included videos for each of the 14 songs.

Her talent as well as her ability to market herself have given her a place at the top of the list. She earned an estimated $115 million between June 1, 2013, and June 1, 2014.

Bey’s husband Jay Z landed at No. 6 on the list with an estimated $60 million earned over the year. The ranking also makes them the most powerful celebrity couple.

Beyoncé and Jay Z are on their 20-date On The Run tour together, and who knows what is next for the couple who seemingly can do pretty much anything they want.

The list is full of musicians, actors and sports stars. LeBron James came in behind Beyoncé at No. 2. He was followed by Dr. Dre, Oprah and Ellen DeGeneres. Oprah was the No. 1 celebrity last year but fell all the way to No. 4 this year.

Rounding out the top 10 are Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Rihanna, Katy Perry and Robert Downey Jr.

Tell us: Do you think Forbes got it right? Is Beyoncé the “No. 1 celebrity”?
