It’s no surprise she tops the newly-released “Powers That Be” list from Vanity Fair, she’s clearly the biggest entertainer in the world these days, and shows no signs of slowing down.

The “Shake It Off” singer is among the biggest “visionary executives and entertainers who have consolidated their spheres of influence while continuing to affect the culture in new ways.”

Vanity Fair wrote of Taylor, “Swift isn’t merely the world’s favorite pop star, putting up sales numbers that are nearly unfathomable in the post-Napster age — she is also using her platform to make giant companies conform to her will.” Other notable mentions include Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Jay Z and Beyonce, LeBron James, and Bradley Cooper.
