Rihanna’s On Her Way to the Top

Author: katy | Filed under: Music News

Rihanna has now taken charge as being the most popular female star on Facebook via the ‘likes’ option. Both Rihanna and Lady Gaga stars were neck and neck at 40.5 million fans. Rihanna overtook Lady Gaga this week becoming the most popular female artist on Facebook. Rihanna now continues to pull ahead, with her Facebook fan base growing by around 100,000 per day. There is only one person to beat now, as Eminem sits in the pole position at 43 million fans.

The question is now can Rihanna make it all the way to the top? Eminem is currently 3 million ‘likes’ ahead on Facebook, but Rihanna continues to be the rapidest growing star in the world on ‘YouTube’, which is down to her provocative video ‘Man Down’ which has now racked up more than 40 million views. In the meantime Rihanna’s fame continues to develop as she stated earlier this week she is to become the new face of ‘Emporio Armani’ lingerie.

This year has been a remarkable one for Rihanna, who has seen her social media fame escalate dramatically following the release of her album ‘Loud’ last year. This February, Rihanna became the fourth artist in history to achieve 1 billion ‘YouTube’ views and is now the third most viewed star on ‘YouTube’ with almost 1.4 billion views. Additionally, Rihanna became the 13th person in history to achieve 6 million twitter followers just last week.
