Popularity Contest: Obama or Gaga?
We’re not talking about a race that either party necessarily chose to enter, but the Facebook pages of both President Barack Obama and Pop Princess Lady Gaga are both rapidly increasing with the amount of fans, or rather, people who “like” them. They are both currently locked in a race to become the… first living person to hit the record breaking 10-million fan mark on Facebook.
Move over, John McCain: Lady Gaga is now positioned to be the next big challenger to President Obama. Obama’s page was beating Lady Gaga’s in the unofficial contest Friday morning, but by noon, Lady Gaga’s 9,126,024 fans had surpassed the president’s 9,104,015. WOW! Realistically, either of them could reach 10-million fans by the end of this weekend.
Lady Gaga’s Facebook page quotes her as saying: “I’m just trying to change the world one sequin at a time.”
Facebook says the next runner up in the race to become the first living person to have over 10 million fans is actor Vin Diesel (at 9,047,448), with actress Megan Fox (at 7,666,005) at a distant fourth. Late singer Michael Jackson holds the all time record for the most fans at over 13 million. RIP Michael. Can’t believe it’s been a year. We miss you.
So who is the next to hit the 10-million mark? Lady Gaga? Or President Obama? Are you a fan of either, neither, or both?
