Hailed for her ‘open’ approach to Twitter and her ailing fan base ‘The Navy‘, Rihanna has amassed quite a representation as being the Queen of social media.
Now, that title has been solidified by Forbes Magazine who have crowned her their ‘Most Social Celebrity’ this week.
Full story below…
Beating Beyonce, Lady GaGa and Oprah Winfrey to the top spot, Riri came in at #1 with 23.8 million Twitter followers and a heft 59.6 million Facebook fans.
Of the singer, Forbes explained:
Rihanna’s Facebook page is mostly a rehash of what she puts on Twitter, plus promotional material like plugs for her upcoming episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter. She has 59.6 million fans on Facebook and 23.8 million followers on Twitter, putting her at the top of our list of Social Networking Superstars.
If only her albums followed suit on the Billboard 200 and her vocals when she hits the stage.
Alas, as impressive as some might find this feat, it’s a shame accolades like these are the bread and butter of Rihanna’s cause, while she fails to live up to her hype as an actual entertainer time and time again.
So, unless being crowned the ‘Most Social Celebrity’ erase the horrors of performances like the above, we’re sure this is one accolade GaGa and co aren’t too fussed about losing out on.
