Lady Gaga just got promoted. Momma Monster has been crowned the “Queen of the YouTube Generation” by becoming the first person whose channel has broken one billion views. May her reign over keyboard playing cats, adorable finger-biting children and assorted student films be a long and happy one.
“We reached 1 Billion views on youtube little monsters!” the new Queen GagaÃ‚Â tweeted this morning. “If we can stick together we can do anything. I dub you all kings and queens of youtube! Unite!”
The singer’s video for “Bad Romance” was YouTube’s highest viewed video with over 250 million earlier this year. However this July she was knocked off the top spot by Justin BieberÃ‚Â and his video for “Baby”, which is still holding steady at number one with more than 344 million views. The Biebs is currently is the Prince of YouTube with a total of nearly 966 million views. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Bieber could steal Gaga’s crown again as early as November 1st. To which we say: lame. Long live the Queen!
