American business and general listings magazine Forbes has come out with its annual list of the top 100 most powerful celebrities. For the past umpteen years the top spot has been reserved for talk show host Oprah Winfrey but zooming in to that exalted position is none other than the equally unassuming Lady Gaga.
According to Forbes editor Dorothy Pomerantz told Reuters: “She can use Twitter and Facebook to work the ‘little monsters’ into a frenzy that leads to record sales and media attention. She’s the best example of how celebrities will need to manage their careers in the coming years.”
Gaga has well over 30 million Facebook fans and was the first celebrity to reach ten million followers on Twitter. She not only sings about and supports gay rights she frequently uses social networking to spread awareness on these issues
