Just because you don’t see Oprah Winfrey every day on daytime television, doesn’t mean that train has stopped in its tracks. If anything, that locomotive is doing just fine, thank you very much.
Forbes magazine, which annually releases a list of Hollywood’s highest paid women, has just announced their latest, and as has been the case for many years, media mogul Oprah Winfrey yet again claimed the top spot, collecting approximately $165 million dollars between May 2011 and May 2012. Winfrey was so far ahead of the rest of the pack that she could not even smell the Cheetos and Frappucino elixir of the #2 woman on the list – poptrick Britney Spears, who Audiotuned her way with $58 million dollars.
As Oprah screamed from the rooftops “I got this” at the other, less fortunate women on the list, there are a few notables present that may surprise many.
Pop singer Taylor Swift made the list in third place, making her the youngest person on the list. Swift whined her way all the way to the tune of $57 million. Others on the list included pop singer Rihanna, Ellen Degeneres, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Gisele Bündchen, and Judge Judy, who closed out the top 10 with $45 million.
Talk about girl power!
