Published 03/22/2024, 4:06 PM EDT

The intricacies of navigating through and leaving an impact on an industry as globally recognized and followed as Hollywood remains a task that only few can manage to get a grasp on. Furthermore, for an outside entrant, one who has little to no call on the filmmaking process, the possibility of achieving that desired stronghold is better left to the imagination. Yet, defying all odds, expectations, and conventions, and in a blatant show of influence, Taylor Swift has managed to clinch just the same.

In the latest round of tallying and listing the most powerful people in Hollywood by Puck News, Taylor Swift ranks at the fourth position. While Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos occupied the top spot, Comcast’s Brian Roberts and Disney’s Bob Iger stand as the only ones above the singer. The revelation, however, has left the fans in awe and stunned at the sheer chokehold the 34-year-old has managed to extend despite her excellence standing footed in the music industry.

The list also unraveled another surprise as Taylor Swift also stood as the youngest among all others, far outpacing 83-year-old John Malone of WB Discovery. Although new entrants such as A24’s David Fenkel and Daniel Katz appeared on the list, the ‘Anti-Hero’ singer showed off wielding exceptional power likely because of her popularity among the masses and her ability to sway the younger generation, going as far as her easily being able to influence the presidential elections.
