The renowned financial magazine Forbes yesterday released the 2012 Forbes Chinese Celebrity List in Shanghai, the 9th time for Forbes to release this list, reports.

Based on their income and media exposure from March 1, 2011 to February 29, 2012, Forbes selected outstanding celebrities in fields such as entertainment, sports, culture and media.

One hundred names from the mainland, Taiwan and Hong Kong appeared on the list, worth 4.32 billion in all.

Taiwanese musician Jay Zhou snatched the top place, with 161.30 million yuan in 2011. In the past year, Jay Zhou released his "Exclamation Mark" album, held a series of concerts and played in the highly-acclaimed action film "The Viral Factor."

Last year's number one, Andy Lau from Hong Kong, slipped to second place. Besides a dozen concerts in two months, he also invested in and played the lead in the commercially and critically successful film "A Simple Life", which garnered about 100 million in box office revenue.

Mainland actress Fan Bingbing is in third place with her advertisement income and film involvements.

Altogether, 55 celebrities on the list came from the mainland, and 14 out of 55 are new faces for Forbes. Mainland actress Yang Mi stood out at the 13th spot.
