YouTube record broken by Lady Gaga
YouTube fans go gaga for Gaga
Lady Gaga has officially become the first person to rack up more than 1 billion channel views on YouTube.
According to BBC, which quotes internet research company famecount.com, Poker-Face Gaga has 1,002,734,757 views on YouTube. This includes all her uploaded material and not a single video.
She tweeted to almost 7 million followers saying: "We reached one billion views on YouTube little monsters!" And then dubbed them "kings and queens of YouTube".
However, the record for highest number of views on a single video is Justin Bieber's single Baby featuring Ludacris, with 367,793,190 views last we checked and the number is steadily increasing.
Lady Gaga has set records online by becoming the most followed person on Twitter and racked up over 20 million Facebook fans. Justin Bieber's Baby overtook her Bad Romance earlier this year for the most viewed video, so the 16-year-old singer could very well be inching up on breaking her YouTube record someday.
