Newsflash: Oprah Winfrey Has a Whole Lot of Money

Oprah is the queen of everything, basically, and she’s rich enough to buy the whole planet about 60 times over and still have money left over. Of course, since ending The Oprah Winfrey Show a few years ago and launching that shitshow of a network, O, she’s sunk quite a bit of cash into a project that hasn’t offered much (read: any) return, so you’d think her fortune had gone down a bit, right? WRONG.

Oprah’s still raking it in, and has been voted atop the Forbes Most Powerful Celebrity list after making $77 million – yes, that’s million – between June 2012 and June 2013. The year before that, she made $165 million. Whaaaat? I mean, damn, can Oprah cut me a check? Also, apparently her network could actually turn a profit by the end of this year. Shit’s getting crazy!

Lady GaGa is second on the list and Steven Spielberg is third, thanks to Lincoln. Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Madonna, Bon Jovi (WHUT!), Roger Federer and Justin Bieber round out the top ten. Check out the full list over at Forbes.
