Here’s Forbes Magazine’s list of 100 most powerful celebrities. I mean, the whole list is after the jump but here are the top ten:

1 Oprah Winfrey $275 million
2 Tiger Woods $115 million
3 Angelina Jolie $14 million
4 Beyonce Knowles $80 million
5 David Beckham $50 million
6 Johnny Depp $72 million
7 Jay-Z $82 million
8 The Police $115 million
9 J.K. Rowling $300 million
10 Brad Pitt $20 million

None of that is really SO surprising except maybe The Police. Obviously Oprah is that the top. She is a patron saint of western culture. Almost. She lacks the stunning beauty that Angelina Jolie has that confirms her position. Angelina in that respect is more powerful. She is, after all, part jaguar and Oprah is a mere mortal.

Last on the list is Paula Deen who I am convinced is one of those smiling, giggling, laughing, fun, Republican voting cannibals who carries a hand gun and has destroyed assistants through verbal assault behind closed doors.

These lists are great because they put the chaos into perspective and they keep it clean and perfect. Clean and perfect is what I desperately need. [source]

It warms my heart to see Letterman beat out Leno.

I graduated high school with Judd Apatow, so that just freaks me out.
