Bey knocked Oprah off the top spot from last year (now #4), meanwhile husband Jay Z just missed out on the top five, coming in sixth behind, LeBron James (#2), Dr. Dre (#3) and Ellen DeGeneres (#5).

Forbes calculates its most powerful list through weighing up estimated earnings, press mentions, internet presence and marketability.
Fears that the now infamous lift fight between Jay Z and sister Solange had damaged brand Beyoncé were unfounded as this just goes to show, any press really is good press.
