NEW YORK, USA, Wednesday May 23, 2012 Barbados’ megastar Rihanna has money, fame, talent and killer looks.  Now she can add power to her attributes, according to Forbes magazine, which recently ranked her fourth in their annual list of the 100 most powerful celebrities in the world.

The Forbes list is not governed strictly by the bottom line (not THAT “bottom line” – had that been the case, Ri-Ri would have left all the competition far behind), but includes a “Social Rank” among the criteria.  This includes TV/radio presence and levels of press and social media attention, all used in formulating the listing, which aims to reflect the level of influence a celebrity has in the entertainment industry.

 With her millions of followers on Twitter and Facebook, Rihanna came in second in the Social Rank category.  Add earnings of US$52million in the last year, and it’s no surprise that Rihanna made such a stunning debut on the Forbes 100 list.
