Lady Gaga named second most powerful celebrity in the world

Lady Gaga has come second in list of the world's most powerful celebrities.

The singer was beaten to the top spot on the 2013 Forbes list by media powerhouse Oprah Winfrey, who has been given the accolade four times in the past.

Third on the list is film director Steven Spielberg, whilst Beyoncé is in at No.4.

Madonna completes the top five and is closely followed by two other music stars, Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi.

Justin Bieber meanwhile lands at No.9 on the list, despite only aged 19.

Other non-music related entries in the Forbes countdown include tennis star Roger Federer at No.8 and Ellen DeGeneres at No.10.

Speaking about Gaga, Forbes writer Dorothy Pomerantz said: "She is still a huge force in pop music. Even when she is not playing, people are talking about her and speculating about her."
