Oprah Winfrey is the highest paid woman in Hollywood according to Forbes magazine. She made a whopping $165 million in just one year. That’s impressive.
Who else made the list? It will probably surprise a lot of people. The woman in the number two spot is none other that X Factor’s Britney Spears. While she was nowhere near Lady O’s earning power, she still raked in $58 million. That’s hardly chump change.
Moving into the third spot is 22-year-old Taylor Swift. She came close to matching Britney at $57 million.
The rest of the top 10 highest paid women’s list holds no major surprises other than perhaps Jennifer Lopez. She scored lower than expected at just $52 million, tying with Lady Gaga. With all her endorsements, music, TV shows and movie (What to Expect When You’re Expecting), one might have expected the sensuous Latina to score higher than that.
Ellen DeGeneres and Rihanna tied just above Lopez and Gaga with $53 million. Just below Jennifer was Katy Perry, model Gisele Bundchen and the only current television personality, Judge Judy. They each made $45 million.
Oprah Winfrey continues to rule when it comes to girl power. Somehow that isn’t surprising given all of her entertainment endeavors which include her own network and a magazine. There’s no stopping Lady O. She just gets better with age and experience.
