Default Beatles third \'most powerful\' stars



by Molly Watson
More than three decades after disbanding, The Beatles are still the third most powerful celebrity force on the planet, according to Forbes magazine.

In a list headed by Tom Cruise and followed by golfing ace Tiger Woods, the Fab Four were praised for earning 50million last year from their greatest hits "1" album, despite the fact that John Lennon has been dead since 1980.

The list is drawn by weighing the earnings of celebrities with the number of press clippings and magazine cover stories they have generated.

Cruise, whose earnings may soon be dented by his divorce from Nicole Kidman, made 29million last year alone.

Tiger Woods cleared only 6million but signed a 70million five-year contract with Nike.

But perhaps the most impressive entrant - at No 4 - is Britney Spears who at the tender age of 19 earned an amazing 26million.

The other members of the top 10 are Bruce Willis, Michael Jordan, the Backstreet Boys, fellow boyband NSYNC, Oprah Winfrey and Mel Gibson. Mike Tyson slugged his way to 11th place with a haul of 32million last year.

I think there are two people on that list that shouldn't be in the places they are, if you know what I mean.

Or we could just make her come to my house, where she'd have to get on her knees and recieve her "punishment".

I don't like how they based the article on. They based it on magazine covers and other things. The Beatles are way better than Tom cruise and the other peole on this list.
