Forbes magazine’s list of top 100 celebrities is out and Beyonce is number one, beating out basketball great LeBron James and media mogul Oprah Winfrey, among other luminaries on the list.

Beyonce is among five women in the top 10. The Forbes Celebrity 100 ranks the most powerful celebrities in film, TV, sports, music, books and modeling. The rankings consider fame and money — including celebrities’ estimated earnings over the last 12 months, as well as mentions in traditional and social media, according to a statement from Forbes.

Beyonce may be on top, but she’s not the highest earner. That honor goes to number three on the list — rapper and entrepreneur Dr. Dre — whose $620 million made him the highest-paid in the top 10.
