Lady Gaga was named in the #1 spot in Forbes Celebrity 100 List taking over Oprah’s spot that she has held for the past 7 year!
According to Forbes,
Lady Gaga topples Oprah Winfrey from her No.1 spot on our list, which she’s given up for only the third time in seven years. Gaga is there not just because of the $90 million she earned with a monster tour, but also because of her 32 million Facebook fans and 10 million Twitter followers–aka Little Monsters–who helped move 1 million digital downloads of her recent single “Born This Way” in only five days. They’re also happy to buy the MAC makeup, Monster headphones and Virgin Mobile phones she features in her videos.
Lady Gaga sat down withÂ ExtraÂ toÂ discussÂ bumping out to the #2 on the Forbes list, Born This Way and cooking,
On beating Oprah on the Forbes list, the singer was humbled. “That’s very nice, onlyÂ Oprah is infinitely more important and influential than me. I’m just grateful to have even ever met her, really. What matters most to me is how the fans feel about the work that I’m doing and the music. But it’s always really, really nice to get compliments like that. I really appreciate it.”
As for the music, Gaga is very passionate about her art. “‘Born This Way’ is about living halfway between reality and fantasy,” explained Her Ladyship. “I wrote the whole record myself. It’s my metaphor about the real you and the magic that’s inside of you. The fans are what keep that alive in me. ‘Born this Way’ is now our attempt as a community to tell the world ‘Magic is not artificial, it’s real. Theatre is not artifice; theatre is not a joke’.”
Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, said she’s received “a bunch of emails about how much the fans loved,” her album, which was leaked on theÂ Internet. “I was so happy. You know what I did? I went into the kitchen and I made spaghetti with mussels and shrimp and a white wine sauce.”
I just can’t see Lady Gaga cooking…lol!
