Angelina Jolie bumps Oprah Winfrey on Forbes Celebrity 100

Tbd-angelinajolie060509 It's time for Oprah Winfrey to call in the spin shock troops, because she's officially been kicked out of the No. 1 spot as the most powerful celebrity in the world on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. Who is the new top dog in Famousville? None other than Angelina Jolie.

The list, an aggregate of entertainment-related earnings and (more importantly) media exposure, says Jolie's $27 million in the last year and three flicks -- Kung Fu Panda, Wanted and the upcoming Salt -- are waaaay better than Oprah's $275 million from her multimedia empire. We're guessing our numerous items on Angie in the last year are what did the trick.

Rounding out the top five are Madonna ($110 million), Beyonce ($87 million) and Tiger Woods ($110 million). Angie's boyfriend and baby daddy Brad Pitt clocked in at No. 9.

And while the roster includes actors, models, chefs, athletes and musicians, it also includes authors. that earns President Barack Obama a debut spot at No. 49, with $2.5 million in book sales. That gives us hope, indeed.
