Last Monday Forbes magazine published a chart of the most powerful celebrities in 2014. In a society where men are still – no doubt – paid more than women, show business actually gives us some good news: at the very top there is a woman, Beyonce Knowles, and the top ten positions are equally divided into five men and five women. Also, three of them are women of color.

Music is the branch of entertainment where women seem to be able to reach the most success and economical reward (Beyonce has position n 1, Rihanna n 8, Katy Perry n 9, Miley Cyrus n 17, Taylor Swift n 18, Lady Gaga n 19, Jennifer Lopez n 33), having your own talk show brings Oprah Winfey to n 4 (she used to be n1) and Ellen de Generes at n 5; finally sport comes in at position n 63, where Mara Sharapova – the best paid woman in sport – is.

The total amount of women in the chart is 33.

Here is the full list of the most powerful celebrities according to Forbes:
