Forbes’ Most Powerful Celebs and the Memories We Have of Them

Back in June, Forbes announced the list of the world’s most powerful celebrities with little to no debate against their top 10 overall choices. BeyoncĂ© is #1, so yeah, no objection here. These celebrities aren’t memorable to us because of their financial wealth though, no. It’s the moments they’ve edged into pop culture history that have had a lasting impression on the public. In the past year, here’s why each of these celebrities caught your attention a little more than the rest.

#10 Robert Downey Jr.
He’s the Iron Man, duh.

#9 Katy Perry
She teamed up with Juicy J and gave us something less bubbly and more dark. “Dark Horse” has been played out on the radio for far too long.

Remember when her Instagram was full of puffs and nipples? Yeah, I miss those days too.

#7 Floyd Mayweather
Money Mayweather isn’t always the biggest man in the room. Maria Sharapova had trouble finding him at the ESPY’s.
