Justin Bieber may be the King of Twitter, but Rihanna is now the Queen of Youtube.  According to “Billboard,” she has passed the tween heartthrob to become the site’s most-watched artist.


Rihanna has 77 videos posted on her official VEVO channel, which have now racked up a combined three-point-seven billion views.  Rihanna also has outdone the Biebs when it comes to Youtube subscribers.  She has accumulated eight-point-seven million subscribers on the platform, compared to Bieber’s four-point-nine million.  “Billboard” notes as well that Rihanna is beating Bieber on Facebook too, with 72-million likes compared to his 54-million.

Others artists who can boast impressive Youtube view counts include South Korean rapper Psy, whose “Gangnam Style” has more than a billion views alone, Eminem and Lady Gaga.
