Lady Gaga won more than fans than Obama on facebook

Lady Gaga performs on July 4, 2010 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Lady Gaga, who calls herself the Fame Monster, has become the first living person to achieve more than 10 million “friends” on Facebook. The news that she had surpassed U.S. President Barack Obama, who now has nearly 9.9 million Facebook fans, created a new flurry that pushed the 24-year-old singer’s online friend list to 10,845,000 by Monday night.

Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, posted a short video message on her website and her Facebook page to the fans she calls “little monsters,” thanking them for helping her achieve new fame.

While she handily beats such contemporary pop stars as Justin Bieber (almost 6.5 million) and Taylor Swift (6.2 million), she still trails the Facebook fan list of the late Michael Jackson (almost 15 million).
