The numbers are in and so are the results. Lady GaGa
just beat out Justin Bieber
for the first artist in history to achieve 1 billion views of their music videos on YouTube.
Lady GaGa had already reached the 1 billion video view mark early this year but that was for the internet as a whole and YouTube alone. Justin Bieber
is expected to reach the 1 billion view mark on YouTube
sometime in November of this year. Lady GaGa Tweeted
this after the milestone was reached:"We reached one billion views on YouTube little monsters."
The race is on to two billion. Who will get there first? Justin Bieber or Lady GaGa? While GaGa has a lead now, Bieber has a book, a movie and possibly a holiday album coming out. The book and movie alone are sure to get Bieber millions of new fans. It will be a close race but I'm betting on Lady GaGa's freak fans to continue to do nothing but sit at the computer watching her videos over and over again.
