(popmusiclife) Jennifer Lopez has been named the World's Most Powerful Celebrity in a new list published by financial magazine Forbes.
Lopez is "a state-of-the-art celebrity success story," writes Forbes. "With $52 million in earnings over the last 12 months and a massive amount of fame, Lopez lands at No. 1 on our Celebrity 100 list for the first time."
The magazine suggests that Jennifer's career turned around substantially with her judging role on American Idol, which raised her profile and helped land her new product lines and endorsement deals.
Lopez bumped Lady Gaga out of top spot from the 2011 list. more on this story
