Forbes Says Lady Gaga Is More Powerful Than Pelosi and Palin: Do You Agree?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be second in line to the presidency, but her influence apparently pales in comparison to a good poker face.

Pop star and "Poker Face" hitmaker Lady Gaga is more powerful than Pelosi and many others, including Sarah Palin, according to Forbes magazine's new list of the world's 100 most powerful women.

"We've come up with a new ranking of the female power elite that reflects the New Order of now," Forbes' Meghan Casserly wrote, explaining that new rankings are based on broader cultural influence than traditional titles.

First Lady Michelle Obama topped the list and Gaga was ranked No. 7, behind Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton but ahead of major political and business figures such as Pelosi, who ranked No. 11.

So what do you think of Forbes' rankings? Is Lady Gaga really more powerful than the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Sarah Palin? Weigh in below.
