Forbes Magazine has released their annual Celebrity 100, a list that ranks the world’s most powerful celebrities. Earning estimates are for June 2006 through June 2007 and include the gross dollar amount earned solely from entertainment income. Actors and old rock stars top the list this year, and most athletes have fallen. The best part: Paris, Britney, Nicole, and Lindsay are nowhere to be found. Forbes reports:
It was a year of conquest in Hollywood. The worldwide box office soared to a record $25.8 billion, buoyed by global blockbusters like Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and Sony’s Da Vinci Code. Madonna reclaimed her title as the mightiest force in music, thanks to her record-breaking Confessions tour, which drew over a million fans and generated $195 million in ticket sales. And golf ace Tiger Woods banked $100 million, more in a single year than any athlete in history.”
