Before anything else, you might be wondering how Forbes created their list. You should know that the bases for the list are (1) earnings estimates (2) number of times a celebrity is mentioned in TV, print or radio from June 1, 2013 to June 1, 2014 and (3) social media. The compilation was made possible by Google, The Nielsen Co., Publishers Weekly, Box Office Mojo and many more. So, here are the list of top 10 most powerful celebrities in the world:

  • Beyoncé Knowles: Beyoncé topped the list. The thirty two year old singer derived most of her wealth from music.
  • LeBron James: Who would have thought that LeBron will become the number two? Believe it or not he is. The twenty nine year old athlete derived most of his wealth from basketball.
