The list for the Forbes’ “Most Powerful Women In The World” for the year 2010 is out and coveting some of the topmost positions are a host of celebrities ranging from singers and actresses to politicians. While First Lady Michelle Obama has been ranked first, guess who’s among the top ten? It is Lady Gaga and Beyonce Knowles, in the seventh and ninth positions respectively! The two pop artists are immensely popular not only in the United States but also worldwide, and Forbes, while rounding up on their choices for this year’s list, took into account the creative influence, a celebrity has on the common man.
According to Moira Forbes, vice-president and publisher of ForbesWoman, every woman included in the list for this year’s nominations exercised not only power and popularity in their respective fields, but also affected the lives of people across the world in many different ways. And it is for this reason that Moira Forbes has included women from the fields of commerce, politics, sports and media in the 2010 list of the Most Powerful Women In The World.
While ‘Telephone’ collaborators Lady Gaga and Beyonce Knowles stand tall at no.7 and no.9, Angelina Jolie, on account of her acting and goodwill ambassador skills, has bagged the no.21 spot on the list. Following shortly behind her is Madonna, who has won the hearts of millions not only with her singing, but also with her advertising campaigns and her plunge into film direction. Sportstar Serena Williams and supermodel Gisele Bundchen also worked their way into the list.
