Howard Stern & Steven Spielberg Join J.Lo, Bieber on Forbes Celebrity 100 List

Forbes magazine has just released it’s famous Celebrity 100 list, with decisions based on a combination of fame and money.

Forbes defines fame as “media visibility in print, television, radio and online, plus social media power, which we measure by looking at each celebrity’s presence on Facebook and Twitter.”

With that definition in mind, you would assume that Justin Bieber would top the list… but somehow he landed at #3 behind Jennifer Lopez in 1st and Oprah in 2nd.

Although Steven Spielberg is the only Jew that landed the Top 10 (at #10), quite a few famous Jews made the list. Some notable names are Howard Stern (#30), Jerry Bruckheimer (#39), Adam Sandler (#57), Jerry Seinfeld (#64), Ben Stiller (#72), and Sarah Jessica Parker (#86).
