Lady Gaga has had a tough time online in the past couple of days.

First, a copyright flap meant her YouTube account was suspended for a short time on Thursday. Now, Mashable notes, fellow songstress Rihanna has taken her crown as the most popular woman on Facebook.

As of this morning, about 30,000 fans separate the two artists.

Gaga, of course, is a social media icon and no stranger to a little competition.

She was the first person to hit 10 million fans on Facebook, beating President Obama; beat tween hearthrob Justin Bieber to be the first to have 10 million Twitter followers; and also holds the title of the first artists to reach 1 billion views on YouTube.
