'Forbes' has just released their new 100 most powerful celebs list and surprisingly, Justin Bieber slid back a few notches while Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift scored higher spots than last year. Forbes has just released their 2013 list of the world's 100 most powerful celebrities and there were definitely some surprises this year.

Justin Bieber, for example, slipped from No. 3 to No. 9, while Lady Gaga jumped from No. 5 in 2012 to No. 2 this year.

So, who scored the coveted No. 1 spot?

Oprah Winfrey-which is not terribly surprising, considering The Big O has been in the top three for the last ten years.

Beyonce secured the No. 4 slot with $53 million in earnings over the past year while Taylor Swift made more money ($55M), but landed two spots behind Bey at No. 6.

Shockingly, Kim Kardashian was only No. 66, with an income of only $10 million, which seems relatively small in comparison.

This year's highest earner was actually Madonna, who raked in a whopping $125 million in the last 365 days!

Are you surprised by any of this year's results? (You can view the full list here)
