The list, which was released on Tuesday, takes into account entertainment-related income, media visibility, and social media popularity. Forbes breaks the ranks down into five categories: money, TV/radio, press, web, and social.
Oprah Winfrey, who's given up the number one place for only the third time in seven years, had to give way to Lady Gaga for the number one spot on this year's list.
