Bieber third most powerful celebrity

Biebs rules from number 3 on Forbes’ list of the 100 most powerful celebrities in entertainment. Earning a cool $53 million between May 2010 and May 2011, the Stratford, Ontario native gives Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey, No. 1 and No. 2 respectively, a run for their money.

In one year, Bieber earned $40 million from crooning “Baby, Baby, Baby, ooh” while touring world-wide. Endorsement sales, music deals, and merchandising added a modest $13 million to his $53 million salary.
