    If this were pop music schoolyard, Rihanna could thumb her nose at Lady Gaga and say: "Na na na na na! I have more Facebook friends than you."

    Late last week, RiRi passed Gaga as the female artist on Facebook with the most fans.

    RiRi pulled in nearly 41,000,000 Facebook fans compared to Gaga's 40,565,000 fans. Despite this Facebook accolade, Lady Gaga's Twitter dominance is much larger. Gaga has 11.6 million followers and counting, a figure that dismantles Rihanna's 6.1 million followers.

    After crossing 40 million Facebook fans on Wednesday, Rihanna posted, "40 mil! 1 LOVE #RihannaNavy." She also acknowledged yesterday's Facebook milestone by retweeting a fan who wrote, "I just read that @rihanna is the most liked female on facebook #yougogirl #winning."

    Eminem tops Rihanna, though. Her "Love the Way You Lie" co-singer has 43.3 million fans on Facebook.

    Are you a fan of Rihanna on Facebook? Do you follow her on Twitter?
