Forbes’ Releases The Celebrity 100 For 2012

Forbes has released their annual “Celebrity 100″ list and Jennifer Lopez has snagged the top spot.

The actress, singer and “American Idol” judge landed the spot thanks to the $52 million she earned last year fueled by her successful “Idol” comeback.

Justin,… stop it!

Lopez wasn’t the top earner on the list, but her high scores in the press, web and social media categories pushed her to the number one spot.

Last year’s most powerful celebrity, Lady Gaga, fell to No. 5, with Oprah Winfrey staying put at No. 2. — Justin Bieber and Rihanna land at No. 3 and No. 4 respectively.

Kim Kardashian was also a notable newcomer at No. 7. She earned $18 million – the lowest amount in the top ten. Pop singer Katy Perry landed at No. 8.
