Forbes 100 List Taken Over by Black Folk

 

The Forbes 100 Most Powerful Celebrities list was recently released, and I must say that black celebs have taken over. The list analyzes celebrity earnings, google hits, tv/radio mentions, press mentions and number of times landed on the cover of a major consumer magazine between June 2006 and June 2007. There were 5 black celebs in the top 25: Tiger Woods at #2, Jay-Z at #9, Kobe at #23 and Shaq close behind at #25. Some other celebs that rounded out the list were 50, Tyra, LeBron, Michael Jordan, Will Smith and Serena Williams. However Oprah topped the list at #1, bringing in $260 million dollars this year. Hopefully this is a good sign of things to come…
