Madonna at n.3 in Forbes list
Oprah Winfrey continues to take over the world. The media mogul is back on top of Forbes‘ annual “Celebrity 100 Power List,” which ranks the rich and famous based on earnings and buzz. Winfrey, who came in third last year, was the top money-maker with an estimated income of $260 million over the past 12 months. She last topped the list in 2005.
Madonna, absent from the list last year, is No. 3. The pop star’s “Confessions” world tour – the highest-grossing tour by any female artist in history – and her adoption of a baby boy in the African country of Malawi put her back in the spotlight.
