Taylor Swift named in powerful woman list

Pop princess Taylor Swift has been ranked alongside figureheads of business and politics on a list of the world's most powerful women.

Swift, pictured here performing in fishnet tights , came 64th on the prestigious Forbes Power Woman List.

The Bad Blood and Blank Space singer was the youngest person on the list and one of 19 new entries.

The oldest member of the list was the Queen, 89, who fell six places to 41. The other two British women named on the list are both newcomers.

The Guardian's new editor-in-chief Katharine Viner occupies the 80th spot, while Nemat Shafik, the Bank of England's deputy governor, comes in at 66th.

German leader Angela Merkel headed the list for the fifth year in a row.

Hillary Clinton's re-emergence as a presidential candidate has helped propel her into second place, up four places from last year, with Melinda Gates third.
