Recently proclaimed as the most powerful celebrity by Forbes magazine, Lady Gaga has finally opened up about the triumphant title bestowed upon to her by one of the more highly regarded publications around.
Talking with Extra, the "Born This Way" singer was a bit passive about claiming the top spot from longtime frontrunner Oprah Winfrey, saying, "That's very nice, only Oprah is infinitely more important and influential than me. I'm just grateful to have even ever met her, really. What matters most to me is how the fans feel about the work that I'm doing and the music. But it's always really, really nice to get compliments like that. I really appreciate it."
Knocking the queen of talk from her top spot, Lady Gaga has edged out Oprah Winfrey for the title of World's Most Powerful Celebrity, according to Forbes magazine.
On the list off 100 famous names, released earlier today (May 18), the "Judas" singer beat out Oprah, who has held on as numero uno for an impressive four years, until moving to her current place at number two.
