The good news for Lady Gaga? She still easily bests Rihanna on the Twitter front, with 11,653,916 followers versus Rihanna's 6,116,687. And according to Famecount's aggregated rankings, she's still tops among celebrities when her combined Facebook likes, Twitter followers and YouTube views are taken into account.

Even so, Rihanna is coming up on Gaga pretty quickly. In fact, judging from her recent stage shows, it's safe to say that her career is literally on fire these days.
