Lady Gaga has been named the most powerful musician in the world, according to Forbes magazine.

The singer earned $80 million between June 1 2012 and 2013, and likely would have earned $30 million more had she been not been felled by a hip injury that caused her to cancel a number of shows on her Born This Way Ball tour, the magazine said.

Forbes also factored her massive social presence -- 38 million Twitter followers and 58 million Facebook fans -- into the equation.

Gaga trailed only Oprah Winfrey -- who made $77 million --in the overall celebrity Top 100.

Beyoncé -- who grosses $2 million in every city she plays -- finished second among musicians and has lucrative deals with Pepsi and H&M. She finished fourth overall. Madonna and Taylor Swift finished third and fourth, respectively, with Bon Jovi finishing fifth. Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Coldplay and Katy Perry round out the Top 10.

Jay-Z finished 32nd, though figures to do better next year, after this summer's huge tour with Justin Timberlake and his forthcoming album "Magna Carta Holy Grail."

James Gandolfini's fellow "The Sopranos' cast members arrived in force Thursday for his funeral at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in Manhattan.

Vincent Pastore (Big Pussy), Lorraine Bracco (Dr. Melfi), Jamie-Lynn Sigler (Meadow), Joe Pantoliano (Ralph Cifaretto), Steve Buscemi (Tony Blundetto), Edie Falco (Carmela), Michael Imperioli (Christopher Moltisanti), Steve Buscemi (Tony Blundetto), and show creator David Chase were seen arriving, according to TMZ.

This is where I don't make a joke about the church having a metal detector.

Other notable figures included New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas. Gandolfini's widow Deborah Lin Gandolfini and Chase were scheduled to deliver remembrances during the ceremony.

Gandolfini's died last week of an apparent heart attack while vacationing with his son in Italy. He was 51.

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are considering getting married, according to the New York Daily News.

That's great ... isn't he still married?

The couple's former co-star on "That 70s Show," Laura Prepon, told the paper that the couple -- who are still waiting for Kutcher's divorce from Demi Moore to be finalized -- get married, she'll be a bridesmaid.

At an event for sitcom "Orange is the New Black," Prepon said: "Of course I will [be there]. Are you kidding?" she asked. "All of us are going to be right up there on the altar."

Earlier this month, a source told U.K. publication the Daily Star. "Mila and Ashton have fallen in love with the UK."

Does that include the food?

The source continued "They are desperate to get married as soon as possible because they want to start a family and are slightly old-fashioned about these things. The first place they thought of was Stonehenge, but they've also been looking at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. Mila loves the idea of a stately home or something in the English countryside."

If they got married at Stonehenge, they would have to get Spinal Tap to play the ceremony.

The source said Kunis and Kutcher want a low-key wedding, with a few family members and friends.

"Although the venue may be spectacular, the wedding itself will be low-key. It's expected it will be just Ashton, Mila and a few family friends."
