(USA TODAY) Queen B. Queen Bey. Queen of the universe. Beyoncé Knowles is laughing all the way to the bank as she continues to rule the (celebrity) world.
SHE'S NO. 1:
The superstar singer has taken the No. 1 spot on Forbes' 15th annual Celebrity 100 ranking of the world's most powerful celebs.
She's been on the list since 2004 but this was her first time at the top, with earnings of $115 million for the past year. She even beat her own hubby, Jay Z!
Others on the list:
LeBron James – $72 million.
Dr. Dre, who moved up from the 63rd spot, earned $620 million in 2014, which is more money earned in the past 12 months than any other celebrity in the history of the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. That's a lot of headphones, Dre.
Oprah Winfrey fell off the top spot with $82 million.
Ellen DeGeneres moved up from the 10th spot with $70 million.
Jay Z earned a mere $60 million.
Forbes notes that of the Top 10, five are women and seven are African Americans.
ROUNDING OUT THE TOP 10:
Floyd Mayweather, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Robert Downey Jr.
The Celebrity 100 obviously isn't just about dollars coming in. The rankings include estimated earnings over the last 12 months — plus that hard-to-exactly-measure quality, fame — and covers celebs from the worlds of movies, television, music, sports, books and modeling.
