Beyonce Tops Forbes' 100 Most Powerful Celebrities List'

She really does run the world.

Beyonce has topped Forbes magazine's newly unveiled list of the world's 100 most powerful celebrities.

The "Bootylicious" belter earned an estimated $115 million in the last 12 months with her surprise self-titled album, lucrative endorsements and mastery of social media, an editor behind the list told the Daily News.

"Beyonce was so far ahead of anybody from the first time we looked at numbers," Forbes' Los Angeles Bureau Chief Dorothy Pomerantz said Monday. "Not only did she earn a ton of money, but she's taken her fame to the next level and become incredibly influential with her understanding of her fans and great use of Facebook and Instagram."

She said the "Run The World" singer, 32, clinched her right to reign supreme when she released her concept album on iTunes last December with no advance publicity and a companion video for each song.

"It showed such a keen understanding of where we are in the moment, how we want to consume, what we want to see. It was really brilliant," Pomerantz said.
