A list that is normally a slew of politicians, journalists, ambassadors, and other figures of note, Beyonce and Taylor Swift have made the list for Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women. It’s no secret that these two are powerhouses for talent and success, but quite frankly, it’s a surprise the two rank so high on the list.
Beyonce makes the list at #21, while Taylor Swift makes the #64 spot. Beating out some of the most influential women of all time including Queen Elizabeth II and Diane Von Furstenberg, the ladies are the only entertainers on the list from the music world.
Other influential notables include Hilary Clinton (who’s graced the list every year since it’s inception), First Lady Michele Obama, Oprah Winfrey, funny lady Ellen DeGeneres, and Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara.
These ladies are definitely worthy of some praise for all of their accomplishments. View the gallery below of the honorees below, and to view the entire list, check out Forbes.com.
