Here are the top 10 most powerful celebrities in 2011 as the Forbes says. I am sure you will not be surprised with the list, but I was a little bit surprised not to find in top ten Jay Z and Beyonce. I was surprised to find her on 29th place, and Jay Z on 38th. Well, it looks like this was Lady Gaga’s year and she was setting trend, and there was not much space for a girlish look. Rihannna, who is to enter the Guinness Book of Records, like the woman singer who managed for 5 years in the road to remain on the firs place on the list charts, is not even on the top 100 list! See who is on top 10 and how much money did we put in their pockets!

6. Tiger Woods

Woods has struggled to win tournaments and sign new sponsorship deals since his November 2009 car crash and the infidelity scandal that followed.

First week sales this spring of EA Sports’ Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters were the highest in the 14-year history of the popular video game franchise.

Whether you consider her music country, pop or both, there’s no question that Swift is a moneymaking machine.

9. Simon Cowell

Cowell’s exit from American Idol this year didn’t kill the show, but it left fans hungry for his biting criticism. Lucky for them, the American version of Cowell’s The X Factor is slated to launch on Fox this fall. Cowell has said that the format, which allows for single and group performers over the age of 12, is his favorite. It doesn’t hurt that he’s revived the old Idol chemistry by hiring on fellow former judge Paula Abdul.
