Billions go gaga over this Lady!

March 25, 2010 15:27 IST

Say hello to Lady Gaga, founding member of The Billionaire Club.

Nope, not net worth in US dollars.

According to a report on tech web site Mashable, the New York City pop star has entered the realm of one billion+ web video views.

Mashable, citing web video analytics company Visible Measures, says that just through her top three hits alone, Gaga has surged past one billion views.

Views of her hit videos Poker Face (374,606,128), Just Dance (272,941,674) and Bad Romance (360,020,327) add up to 1,007,568,129, and that's not even mentioning her other hits songs like Paparazzi and Telephone.

But Gaga, who turns just 24 next week, won't be the only member of The Billionaire Club for long, as trailers for The Twilight Saga (980 million) and hip-hop internet sensation Soulja Boy (860 million) are close behind.

For some reason or another, the 'net seems to have gone gaga for Gaga, who just a few years ago was a complete unknown. Now she's one of the most watched people on the planet!
