Move Over Lady Gaga, Rihanna is the New Queen of Facebook
Within the last hour or so, Rihanna has successfully pushed Lady Gaga off of her thrown as the queen of Facebook. Rihanna has now managed to edge past Gaga with a growing fan base of about 100,000 fans per day. Currently both stars have around 40.5 million fans. There is only one person who stands ahead of Rihanna and it’s her pal Eminem who has over 43 million fans. It was only a few days ago when Rihanna reached the 40 million mark. She celebrated her new Facebook royalty by posting a status update that said “40 mil! 1 LOVE RihannaNavy.”
But it isn’t just on Facebook that Rihanna is taking over. Back in February of last year, Rihanna became the fourth artist in history to get 1 billion YouTube views. Last May Rihanna actually overtook Eminem on YouTube and at the moment she is now the the third most viewed star on the network with almost 1.4 billion views. Plus, last week she became the thirteenth person ever to collect six million Twitter followers.
According to Famecount, the company that is aggregating all of these star stats together, they have come to the conclusion that Rihanna is the third biggest social media star in the world. Ahead of her is Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
