NEW YORK (AP) - Taylor Swift has power and cash. Of the few country stars on the new Forbes list of the 100 most powerful celebrities, Swift ranks the highest: number 7. There's a huge gap between her and the three other country stars on the new list. Brad Paisley comes in at 48th. Toby Keith is ranked 51st. Tim McGraw is the 61st most powerful celebrity on Forbes' list. While Josh Kelley, who's just switched from pop to country, isn't on the list, his wife is. Katherine Heigl is ranked 89th. Lady Gaga tops the list. She pushes Oprah Winfrey out of first into second place this year.
Is there any real power in being a celebrity?
