Money is still the most important metric of celebrity, and we calculate which entertainers and athletes have earned the most in the past year; in the interest of diversity, we've selected top earners from different professions. But the measure of celebrity entails much more--media mentions and Web buzz and other touchstones of fleeting fame. Thus our Power 100 list combines earnings with media exposure to calculate the relative status of a vast array of stars.
The top 10 rated celebrities are all huge names of course:
1 Britney Spears
2 Tiger Woods
3 Steven Spielberg
6 N Sync
7 Mariah Carey
8 Oprah Winfrey
9 Michael Jordan
10 Tom Hanks
