Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lopez keeps raking in the accolades. Forbes magazine just named her the World's Most Powerful Celebrity. The list ranks stars according to their visibility, income and social media presence. She takes the throne from Lady Gaga, who made the top spot in 2011.

Singer, actress and "American Idol" judge Lopez earned a staggering $52 million over the last year, helping her land the number-one spot on the new 100 list. Oprah Winfrey, head of the failing OWN Network, came in at number two. Teen heartthrob and popstar Justin Bieber is at number three.

Also in the top five are popstar Rihanna and last year's number one, Lady Gaga. "The X Factor's" newest judge Britney Spears, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Katy Perry, actor Tom Cruise and filmmaker Steven Spielberg also made the 2012 top 10.
Lopez stars in the upcoming film "What To Expect When You're Expecting," which opens this weekend. She's also about to embark on a Mega 2012 tour with Puerto Rican reggaeton duo Wisin Y Yandel and Enrique Iglesias. And let's not forget she's dating her former, much younger, backup dancer Casper Smart.

Last year People magazine named Lopez the World's Most Beautiful Woman. Most powerful, most beautiful - what can she possibly do next?
