    No Cristiano Ronaldo? Like he is one of the most powerful people.

    • Dope

      This seems more like the ”American’s only” list.

  • bplus1220

    What makes them so powerful? Are they creating laws or something?

    • GP

      I guess because every woman wants to be fakeonyce and almost every bball kids wants to be the next LeBron. that’s all I can think off. but im like you what does makes them so powerful?

  • GMF357

    Soooooo out of the Forbes top ten powerful celebrities, my black ppl hold 7 of the ten spots all the while our ppl suffer and endure the negativity from entertainment as well as in our communities….Dayum when did the definition of “powerful” change.

    • Twonpass

      very good point

    • Dubz

      That’s what they want you to believe….that your people are still down. Keep feeding into that “our people are still struggling” and that is what you’re going to get….walk around with your head high…continue to do positive and you will see positive. The black people that are on this list isn’t letting all the negative talk in the media and the community keep them from making money

      • GMF357

        You are right, they don’t let the negative talk in the media and the community keep them from making money simply because they use the media and community to make their money

    • Dope

      The only people struggling are the stupid ones, regardless of the race, who accept to be on the bottom. Jay didn’t accept it, Dre didn’t accept it etc.. and look at where they are now. But it’s all on individual level. Just because they are successful it doesn’t make you successful. You have to make something out of yourself, nobody else will.

      • GMF357

        You do have to make something of yourself but that does not meant that you don’t need help. And everyone struggling are not stupid.

      • Dope

        True, but those who do nothing to up themselves, and blame someone else for ”keeping them down” are the lazy and stupid ones.

  • Same people on the list as last year, and the year before that, and the year before that. #justsaying

  • Immortal

    Nuff Said

  • Dreday410

    So Rihanna has more Power then P.Diddy and Russell Simmons

    • Chrisblackusa

      Around the world rihanna does. .any nation rihanna is in crowds sleep outside the hotel..they aint sleeping outside for diddy or russ..

  • JimJames29

    This bs is based on nothing… how do you measure power? Besides money? What power does lebron have besides his money? Oprah has 100000x more power than a lebron or beyonce… these lists are just entertainment… and from the looks of it forbes is trying to befriend thr black race..

    • Dope

      The power of making people buy whatever merchandise he decides to endorse. That’s why these celebrities get millions just to wear certain brand’s sneakers in public or walk around with a certain drink in their hand.

      • JimJames29

        You knoiw what, I didnt think if that. You are right.
