Oprah Winfrey’s annual earnings fell by a massive $125 million last year, but she is still the world’s highest paid celebrity.

The TV mogul earned a cool $165 million down from $290 million from a year earlier, according to Forbes magazine.

When People Tell You That You Can’t, You Just Smile And Say, ‘Watch Me’
