Pop star Lady Gaga has been named as the world's most powerful celebrity in a new poll compiled by Forbes magazine. Contactmusic.com reports that in Forbes magazine's annual celebrity power 100 list, Gaga has beaten chat show queen Oprah Winfrey, who has held the top spot for the past four years. Winfrey is second on the list. A statement from the magazine said: "Lady Gaga tops our power list not just because of her $90 million in earnings, but also because of her 32 million Facebook fans and 10 million Twitter followers. Those fans helped move 1 million copies of her hit single, 'Born This Way', in just five days."
