For the second year in a row, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg tops tops Vanity Fair‘s New Establishment List, which is a roundup of “the top 50 of an innovative new breed of buccaneering visionaries, engineering prodigies, and entrepreneurs,” says the mag. And smack at #9 is the tally’s top woman — and the youngest person, male or female — to appear on the list: Lady Gaga.Vanity Fair notes that the inclusion of young MTV VMA winner Gaga is “not a surprise for someone whose fans managed to crash Amazon’s servers in their desperation to download her third album.”

Beyonce’s babydaddy Jay-Z shows up at #21, thanks to his Roc Nation empire. And way down at #50, “You And I” singer Gaga’s springtime SNL partner in comedy Justin Timerblake is the only other pop star to make the New Establishment List.

Though, truthfully, “pop star” is no longer the first label that comes to mind when one thinks of JT these days, is it?
