Lady Gaga, Jay Z, and Justin Timberlake are among the celebs who made it to the Vanity Fair New Establishment List.
The Vanity Fair New Establishment List is supposed to highlight the "top 50 of an innovative new breed of buccaneering visionaries, engineering prodigies, and entrepreneurs," which is a lot of big words that basically mean, the 50 people who are both rich and awesome.
The #1 spot on the list goes to Mark Zuckerberg because he is responsible for the down-fall of face-to-face interaction, I mean, the inventor of facebook.
The rest of the list is filled with tech people whose names you wouldn't recognize without the help of an extensive google search, and other people who did important internet things like the creators off Google, Apple, Twitter, Netflix and Amazon etc.
But there are some celebrity-types sprinkled throughout the list including Lady Gaga who made the list at spot #9. Gaga is the highest ranking woman on the list, ahead of JK Rowling at No. 16. She is also the youngest person on the list and this is her second year in a row making an appearance.
Vanity Fair says Gaga deserves her high ranking and that it's "not a surprise for someone whose fans managed to crash Amazon's servers in their desperation to download her third album."
Sadly, only 5 women total made the entire list. Basically Gaga is topping every kind of list lately. She made it to Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women list and The World's Most Powerful Celebrities list. When it comes to list topping, Gaga is having the best year ever.
Jay-Z also made the list at #21 for his Roc Nation empire which includes a clothing line and a management company that reps artists like Rihanna.
Ashton Kutcher is at #43. Is it for his contributions to Charlie Sheen's career and Nikon camera ads? Because I'm pretty sure Nikon ads could have found another hot actor to front the brand. Ashton also has spearheaded a PSA campaign that sheds light on the terrors of human trafficking. So that's pretty awesome actually.
Tim Burton and Johhny Depp placed just after Gaga at #14 for their collaborations and innovative contributions to film.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone of "South Park" fame made it to spot #17 for creating the most foul mouthed children's cartoon ever and basically being the most prolific cartoonist ever.
Judd Apatow who produces every R Rated comedy ever, landed the #20 spot for his company, Apatow Productions. If there were an award for most "Innovations Of The Dick Joke" Apatow would for sure take the #1 spot.
Closing off the list is Justin Timberlake who placed #50 because he wears almost as many hats in Hollwood as James Franco. Justin sings, acts, appears on SNL and is now working at Myspace in an attempt to re-energize the site.
