Lady Gaga, singer and entertainer, is the youngest person included in Forbes most powerful women’s list this year. The singer was ranked at #11 on the list and was the only person in the entertainment industry to be included in the Top 15 (others were politicians, businesswomen and non-profit organizers). Other entertainers included were Beyonce Knowles at number 18, Angelina Jolie at number 29, and Ellen DeGeneres at number 55.
Angela Merkel was at the top, followed by Hilary Clinton with Melinda Gates, Indira Nooyi and Michelle Obama at the top 10. The fashion industry was not left behind with Vogue’s Anna Wintour at number 69, Miuccia Prada at number 79 and Diane Von Furstenberg at number 91.
It was quite surprising to see Lady Gaga bag such a top position since I always deemed her a fashion icon but never actually a powerful (errrr) woman. Nevertheless, we congratulate Lady Gaga for the position! Don’t forget to see the whole list!Tags: angela merkel, Angelina Jolie, anna wintour, Beyonce, diane von furstenberg, Ellen Degeneres, Forbes, hilary clinton, Lady Gaga, melinda gates, Miuccia Prada
