37 Unbelievable Strange Facts About Britney Spears
Was The Most Powerful Celebrity in 2002
Back in 2003, Forbes Magazine had declared the newly single Britney Spears the most powerful celeb in the world. The then 20-year old sec symbol knocked Tom Cruise from being No. 1 on the list that year, which Forbes derives from combining earlier with the measure of media exposure. That year Spears had pulled in only $39.2 Million, but she was also featured in over 25,000 news items, so that pushed her to the top of the list beating out 99 other celebrities. Coming in second that year was Tiger Woods. Mariah Carey, Madonna, Steven Spielberg, Oprah, â€˜N SYNC, and U2 were amongst the top ten.
