Guess AMERICAN IDOL can be good for one's career. Today, FORBES added yet another list of "powerful" people in the entertainment world, and Jennifer López took the top slot. Guess being Latin@ these days is getting attention, even though most of these lists are just generated by public relations buzz, it's still kind of cool to see JLO get acknowledged for her success.

In the ironic category, boxing champ Manny Pacquiao, who this week was getting slammed for his medieval views on gays and gay marriage, is more powerful than Ellen. We'll see how long that lasts.

In the soccer world, Ronaldo is more powerful than Messi. Guess that is what happens with Real wins La Liga. But really? Toby Keith is more powerful than Messi? WTF indeed.

And in the battle of glamorous mainstream Latinas, Sofía over Eva.

Ahh, here is to silly lists and visions of power.
