FameCount.com initially showed that Lady Gaga was poised to reach 10 million fans (as of Friday, July 2, she had 9,940,462 online devotees) and has since surpassed that estimate. As of this morning, the Lady had more than 11 million Facebook fans!
As she set her record on the social media giant, the controversial singer even took to her Facebook page and made a video to thank her worldwide entourage of "little monsters." In the clip, she says, "All of your love and all of your support and for sticking by me through the fame and the fame monster." She goes on to blow a kiss and adds, "Become my friend on Facebook, I'll never forget you."
According to MTV, Lady Gaga is leaps and bounds ahead of other popular celebs like Britney Spears, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber on the social networking site, but she's no match for Michael Jackson. The late singer currently has more than 15 million fans.
But Facebook isn't the only place where Lady Gaga's "little monsters" are soaking up as much of her as they can. The "Poker Face" songstress has upwards of 4.7 million followers on Twitter, too! It seems whether she's showing her assets on the cover of Rolling Stone or flipping the bird at baseball games (much to Jerry Seinfeld's dismay), 2010 is, no doubt, the year of Gaga.
