In the battle of most powerful entertainer, one of our favorite AMP artists narrowly missed being placed at the top of Entertainment Weekly’s list, instead making it to the number two spot.
Think you know which “Born This Way” artist took the second spot? And even better, which swashbuckling actor took first place making him the most powerful person in entertainment?
It’s [lastfm]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]! She took the number two spot on the list behind Captain Jack Sparrow actor [lastfm]Johnny Depp[/lastfm]. [lastfm]Eminem[/lastfm] also rounded out the list, taking the 10th spot and further solidifying himself as a powerhouse in rap and hip-hop.
EW says that it compiled it’s list from concrete data to indicate star power, box office draw and overall ability to sell:
…a formula that included both hard, crunchable numbers (box office grosses, TV viewers, albums sold) with less tangible factors, like a star’s influence within their industry or general command of the pop cultural stage.
