Justin Bieber has usurped Lady Gaga's YouTube crown. The 16-year-old singer now holds the distinction of having the "Most Watched Music Video Ever" on YouTube for his video for "Baby." The clip has now sailed past Gaga's video for "Bad Romance," which was the most-watched video of all time. More than 246 million eyes have watched Bieber's video. That's a lot of teenage girls.
Bieber did not let this coup, this rousing achievement, this yardstick of pop culture accolade go unnoticed and even Tweeted a thank you to "Beliebers" and described the video's success as "crazy." The singer wrote: "I started on youtube so ... WOW!"
Something in my gut tells me that Gaga will somehow, some day retake her crown and have another video become the Most Watched Video Ever on YouTube. So enjoy it will you can, JB!
Which video do you like better? "Baby" or "Bad Romance"?
