Lady GaGa has ranked at number 5 on the 2012 Forbes Celebrity 100 Power List. The list, which includes Jennifer Lopez at number 1, is based on a combination of money, TV and Radio, press, web and social exposure.
Lady GaGa ranks in at number 1 on both the press exposure (news and stories written about her over the past year), and social media (Facebook, Twitter) lists.
Last year saw Lady GaGa hit the number 1 spot, thanks to a successful Monster Ball tour. The lack of touring since May 2011 led to her moving down the list.
