Eminem, Facebook King. The rapper has that title all to himself after surpassing 60 million "Likes" Wednesday, more than any other living person.

Rihanna and Lady Gaga, who each have huge social media followings of their own, are Liked by about 59.4 million and 53.5 million, respectively.

Despite the fact that fan interaction and writing in first person on Facebook is the #1 way to get shares and Likes, being famous trumps all.

On Eminem's Facebook page, the 39-year-old generally posts links to YouTube videos of his music and interviews, with little or no comment.

According to AppData, Eminem is close to nabbing more than 26,000 "Likes" each day, with Rihanna not far behind with 22,000 "Likes" per day.

Rihanna and Gaga's more engaged approach top Eminem in the "talking about this" metric, however, which measures overall activity on a page.

Eminem has 290,896 people talking about him, while Rihanna has 1,016,304 and Lady Gaga has 1,209,588 ... that's a lot of Little Monsters.

When it comes to Twitter, however, Lady Gaga is the undisputed queen with more than 27 million followers. Justin Bieber has nearly 26 million.

Given her massive fan base and given that she is seemingly everywhere, it's not too big of a shock that Lady Gaga would be the subject of a celebrity death hoax.

However, for the same reasons, it was easy to establish that this was not the case, unlike with someone who's a little more off the radar (say, Spencer Pratt).

An online scam claims Lady Gaga was found dead in a hotel room. Not the case, but at least the hoax-spreaders went for the traditional celebrity die-off situation.

Gaga Goes Gaga

Some enterprising cyber-criminals are, for some reason, spreading the following headline via Facebook: "BREAKING: Lady Gaga Found Dead in Hotel Room."

It links to a BBC News story and a description reading "This is the most awful day in US history." If you click the link, you end up on a fake BBC spam site.

We got out of there real quick, but the bottom line is that Facebook scammers are trying to pilfer you to "Like" stuff and earn a commission. Simply pathetic.

Mother Monster is alive and well, we assure you - the singer was seen cheering on her hometown New York Giants at stupidly-named MetLife Stadium Monday.

New York won, 28-16, as St. Louis may suck more than Facebook spammers.

Lady Gaga may be the highest-earning, top-selling and best-known woman in popular music today, but Rihanna has more "Likes" on Facebook.

This week, Rihanna accumulated enough Facebook fans to surpass Gaga and claim the throne as the platform's top ranking female celebrity.

According to their Facebook stats, as of Saturday, Rihanna had 40,699,853 likes, and Lady Gaga had 40,611,908, giving RiRi a slight lead.

Of course, Gaga has her by close to five million fans on Twitter, so Rihanna can't lay claim to being the queen of all social media just yet.

Shakira is the diva with the third most Facebook followers. Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Shakira hold the No. 5, 6, and 8 positions overall.

Three men make the top 10: Eminem (No. 3, 43,367,713 likes), Michael Jackson (No. 7, 38,069,882), and Justin Bieber (No. 10, 33,035,903).

Eminem has dethroned Lady Gaga as the most popular living person on Facebook, according to Famecount (dot) com. The Queen's reign lasted eight months.

With almost 29 million Facebook fans (people that "Like" is page), Eminem overtook Gaga, who still remains within a million fans of the rapper's overall total.

Only one person retains more Facebook popularity than Eminem - the late Michael Jackson. At just over 29 million Likes, Michael looks poised to fall to #2-3.

Lady Gaga held the lead since June 25 of last year, when she overtook President Barack Obama (who has since fallen to 12th place among living humans).

On Twitter, Gaga's 8.4 million Little Monsters dwarfs Eminem's modest 3 million, while he lags both Gaga and Justin Bieber on Twitter and YouTube as well.

Whoever's #1, they're in a class by themselves. Perhaps the three can form a social media triumvirate, pooling resources en route to world domination.

Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Usher are going dark.

All in the name of charity. The aforementioned foursome and others are signing off Twitter and Facebook Tuesday until they raise $1 million for World AIDS Day.

Keys' charity, Keep A Child Alive, is staging a campaign that will have celebs such as Lady GaGa, Justin Timberlake, and Usher signing off of all social media.

PEACE OUT: Donate money or Usher won't be back on Twitter!

The "Digital Life Sacrifice" will feature the stars' filming "last tweet and testament" videos which will show them lying coffins to represent their "digital death."

"It's really important and super-cool to use mediums that we naturally are on," Keys said. "It's so important to shock you to the point of waking up."

"It's not that people don't care or it's not that people don't want to do something, it's that they never thought of it quite like that. This is direct, instantly emotional way, a little sarcastic too, as a way to get people to pay attention."

One burst on the scene in the late 1990s and became one of the most successful pop artists of all-time, dominating sales and headlines throughout the next decade.

The other made a name for herself in the late 2000s and, while her career is still in its early stages, looks poised for a decade comparable to that of her predecessor.

It's little surprise that Britney Spears and Lady Gaga are battling for Twitter supremacy, given their hit songs, controversial images and impact on popular culture.

Right now, Gaga leads at 5,713,469 followers. Britney has 5,695,008. Ashton Kutcher, who Spears just passed to temporarily claim the #1 spot, has 5,568,785.

Who would you rather ... follow on a social network?

Buoyed by a year and a half of smash hit singles, outrageous outfits and Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors, the "Bad Romance" singer leads on Facebook as well.

Spears, whose celebrity status has proved as bulletproof as it is long-lasting and enormous despite various mishaps, isn't doing too shabbily on that site, either.

Who will reign supreme as the Queen of All Social Media? At least until Justin Bieber decides he will become #1 and does so immediately? Only time will tell.

More and more people are going gaga for Lady Gaga ... online.

Buoyed by outrageous costumes and smash hits like "Bad Romance," "Just Dance," "Poker Face" and "Alejandro," she's become one of the biggest names in music.

And the biggest name on Facebook among all living beings.

Friday, she surpassed 10 million fans on the social networking site, eclipsing President Barack Obama for the top spot (Britney Spears has the most Twitter fans).

Shellfish Individual

The possible alter ego of Jo Calderone is only #1 among the living, of course. According to USA Today, five entities have more Facebook fans than Lady Gaga:

  1. Michael Jackson
  2. Texas Hold 'em Poker
  3. Family Guy
  4. Mafia Wars
  5. Facebook

The rumored hermaphrodite told Rolling Stone that it's her fans who motivate her: "When I wake up in the morning, I feel like any other insecure 24-year-old."

"Then I say, 'You're Lady Gaga, get up and walk the walk today.'"

Amen. Follow this link to become a fan of THG on Facebook!
