Rihanna tops Lady Gaga as YouTube Queen

Fan site Rihanna Daily reports the Barbadian pop star has overthrown Lady Gaga for the title of “Queen of YouTube.“

As of yesterday’s report, Rihanna has clocked a total of 2,033,848,822 video views, which is over 2 million more than Gaga’s…and growing daily.

The YouTube crown comes on the heels of Rihanna’s recent billing as “Queen of Facebook” late last year where, coincidentally, she also replaced Gaga.

Rihanna was also recently named the “Queen of Digital Downloads” - Nielsen SoundScan reported she had sold more than 47 million digital tracks to the end of 2011.

The Rihanna/Gaga titles debate amongst fans is sure to continue.

This week, Rihanna announced that the title track to her latest album, “Talk That Talk” (featuring Jay Z), will be her next single.
