J-Lo Blocks GAGA From The Celeb Top Spot

Actress, singer, model and Idol Judge, Jennifer Lopez trumps all other celebrities according to Forbes

Move over Mother Monster! Lady Gaga has been toppled from the Forbes Celebrity 100 list by American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez who takes the top spot for the first time.

Measuring success via a combination of financial earnings and wealth in the form of column inches and social media presence, Forbes have crowned J-Lo the winner of this year’s chart following a hugely successful year. A judging seat on American Idol has re-booted Jennifer’s profile whilst netting her a cool $52 million for her bank account and seeing her twitter following exceed 7 million.
