The New Establishment: Bezos, Zuckerberg and Lady Gaga?

They come from the music, tech, media, finance and movie industries. They are Vanity Fair’s New Establishment, a list of 50 “buccaneering visionaries, engineering prodigies, and entrepreneurs.” And who got the top billing among the motley crew?

For the second year in a row, the honor fell to none other than Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg who the editors say “has enough clout to worry even the unshakable Google.” Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin took second place, while Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos came in third. (Up from the fifth slot last year).

And guess who fell off the list this year?

That’s right. Embattled Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, who ranked 46th last year, was nowhere to be found. (In fact, no one from Microsoft made the list).

The top ranking woman (and youngest) honoree was singer Lady Gaga, who ranked 9th just ahead of Dan Doctoroff of Bloomberg, Dick Costolo of Twitter and Mark Pincus of Zynga.

Full list here.
