The American star came in at 14 with the Queen in 26 and the likes of Michelle Obama taking the 7th spot and Hilary Clinton at number two.

She will head to the UK next month for a series of shows at Twickenham Stadium and Mancheser Arena.

The 'You & I' singer is also launching her FAME fragrance and shocked fans when she dyed her hair brunette this week – although she vowed to continue her tour as a blonde.
