Lady Gaga First Artist with One Billion Web Video Views

Pop star Lady Gaga just became the first artist to surpass one billion online video views across her three most popular videos: Poker Face (375 million views), Bad Romance (360 million views), and Just Dance (273 million views). Not far behind are the two trailers for the Twilight Saga videos, which have combined views of 984 million and Soulja Boy is at 860 million.

These numbers come from Visible Measures, which just updated its Hundred Million Views Club of viral videos. It estimates views across all the major video-sharing sites as well as embeds. There are now 65 videos with more than 100 million views, and more than half of them are music videos. Historically, that’s been the case as well.

Lady Gaga (born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta; March 28, 1986) is an American recording artist. She began performing in the rock music scene of New York City’s Lower East Side.

The singer came up with her stage name, when she received a text message from a friend that read “Lady Gaga” after the Queen song “Radio Ga Ga”.

Lady Gaga is inspired by glam rock musicians such as David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, as well as pop music artists such as Madonna and Michael Jackson. She has also stated fashion is a source of inspiration for her songwriting and performances. She has sold over eight million albums and over thirty-five million singles worldwide.

Lady Gaga is everywhere right now. If you have any ideas why the web loves her so much, let us know in the comments.
