Attention powerful celebrities: Are your ears burning? Forbes unleashed its annual list of the 100 Most Powerful Celebrities this week and guess what? A cool 100 of you were on it. Despite the fact that we don't even recognize a good number of names on the list—what is sports?—this year's list-a-dee-doo-dah is being widely received as the very best one yet. (It certainly smokes 2004's half-assed effort! You know what we are talking about!)
Oprah Winfrey retains her top status as Forbes' no. 1 because that's what she told them was going to happen. Completing the bookends at 100 is the Food Network's bon vivant, Paula Deen, who, admittedly, we'd never even heard of until seeing this list. Which explains why she's at 100, we suppose. In between is the usual motley collection of actors, entrepreneurs, race car drivers and pretty ladies.
There were some surprises though, a few of which we dare to take issue with, recompense be damned!
