Beyoncé was named Forbes' most powerful celebrity of the year in a list unveiled Monday, snatching the top spot from Oprah Winfrey and joining six more African Americans in the top 10 of the magazine's Celebrity 100.
The singer earns an estimated $115m per year, making $2.4m per stop on the massive On the Run tour. Her husband Jay-Z is part of the same tour and also made the top 10, earning an estimated $60m per year.
It was a good year for minorities on the list – seven of the top eight most powerful celebrities, according to Forbes, are black; one, comedian Ellen DeGeneres, is gay. The magazine ranked the celebrities in order of their wealth and influence, measured by media appearances.
The top 10 most powerful celebrities, in order, are:
Robert Downey Jr.
