Not even the sports world’s most disturbing, jaw-dropping and borderline obscene scandal could propel Tiger Woods to the top of one of the year’s biggest “it” lists, as Forbes Magazine named Oprah Winfrey the World’s Most Powerful Celebrity.
Woods, the top athlete on the list at No. 5, was beaten out by Beyonce Knowles, James Cameron and Lady Gaga. Yes, the same lovely “Lady” of recent Yankee Stadium burlesque show fame.
Coming in behind Woods for top athletes and sports figures were Kobe Bryant (No. 14), Michael Jordan (No. 20) and LeBron James (No. 28). Tennis star Roger Federer, who is No. 1 in the magazine’s press ranking, came in at No. 29.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady failed to make the list, but his wife and supermodel Gisele Bundchen checked in at No. 85.

“Beginning Wednesday, Carlos will undergo a treatment program with mutually agreed upon doctors from the Players’ Association and Major League Baseball. Basically, he will have to follow the treatment for his issues and be evaluated properly, and if the program is acted on properly in accordance to what the doctors they signify he needs to work on and improve on, and follow their directives, Carlos will not be reinstated any time until after the All-Star break.”
