Gaga’s ‘Little Monsters’ Beat Obama in Facebook Run

It was a close run, but Lady Gaga and her team of ‘little monsters’ (a term of endearment she uses to address her fans) have beaten U.S. President Barrack Obama in the race to reach 10 million fans on Facebook.

According to Famecount, an online social networking statistics website, Lady Gaga is the only living person in the world to achieve this feat. However, despite the growing number of fans on her fan page, the ‘Poker Face’ star is (ironically) roughly nine million fans away from the top spot held by Texas Hold’em Poker. As it stands, she is currently ranked 5th.

Whilst it might have been a tight run to 10 million between the President and the larger than life singer, the latter currently (13th July) boasts 12,059,694 Facebook fans compared to Obama’s 10,518,670 whose site is managed by Organising for America. As if that wasn’t enough, with 4.8 million followers, Gaga also has more followers on Twitter than Obama but unfortunately, not enough to surpass Britney Spears’ 5.3 million.

During an autograph session in 2009, Gaga famously bought over a $1000 worth of pizza for her fans who had been waiting outside Best Buy all night long to see her.
