Rihanna now most popular female celebrity on Facebook

Rihanna has replaced Lady Gaga as the most popular female celebrity on Facebook.

The Umbrella singer had 20,000 more fans on the social media website than Lady Gaga on Friday 15 July, how last week was blocked from her YouTube page for copyright infringements.

Rihanna has 40.86 million viewers at the time of writing, while Lady Gaga has 40.75 million, meaning the gap has narrowed over the weekend, and could possibly mean that Gaga could take back the crown.

Lady Gaga was the first living music artist to get over 10 million fans on Facebook.
