Move Over, Gaga! Rihanna Is the New Queen of Facebook!

With over 40 million Facebook fans, the "Man Down" singer has bested Mother Monster on the social network

Lady Gaga definitely has no shortage of Little Monsters who follow her on Twitter (almost 12 million of them), but she's got a new rival on the Facebook fan front. As of this week, Rihanna has collected enough of them to outnumber the "Born This Way" singer.

Gaga made history by being the first living artist to collect 10 million Facebook fans, beating President Obama. And according to, which measures social media popularity, the "Born This Way" star now has over 40 million followers on the site. But Rihanna's fast-growing Facebook fanbase has overtaken even Gaga's -- by about 30,000 fans.

On Tuesday, the 23-year-old singer acknowledged the feat on her wall, writing, "40 mil! 1 LOVE #RihannaNavy," and 2733 people congratulated her in the comments.

Now the only star with more Facebook fans is Eminem. Rihanna will need about another 3 million fans to beat his record. Come on Rihanna followers -- you can do it!
