Taylor Swift & Beyonce Are Among Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Women
By Philip Cosores
Forbes has released its list of its 100 Most Powerful Women, and not surprisingly, a couple of music stars have made the list.
Beyonce ranked highest of all entertainers, coming in at No. 18 on the list. Forbes noted that Beyonce topped all entertainers of their celeb list last year, with her earning power showcased both on her own tour and on her joint tour with husband Jay Z.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift is in at No. 64, and is the youngest person on the Forbes list at just 25 years old. Forbes cites her transition from country to pop on 1989 as a major part of her power, with its 3.5 million albums sold reminiscent of a time that many thought had passed.
