Angelina More Powerful Than Oprah

Girl power! Forbes’s annual list of the top 100 celebrities put women in its top four spots—Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, Beyonce Knowles, and, topping the list, Angelina Jolie. Jolie’s win came as a surprising upset to Winfrey, who’s dominated the ranks for the past two years. But Jolie nearly doubled her income from $15 million last year to more than $26 million—still a drop in the bucket compared to Winfrey’s annual salary of $275 million. Meanwhile, Madonna’s Hard Candy world tour and headline omnipotence earned her the No. 3 spot, up from No. 21 last year. Knowles held steady at No. 4, where she landed last year, as well. Will next year’s list make room for Sotomayor?
