‘I’m So Proud Of You’: Lady Gaga Congratulates Justin Bieber On Matching Twitter Followers

She is the most followed celebrity on Twitter but Lady Gaga isn’t worried about being overtaken by Justin Bieber, even congratulating the youngster on nearly matching her success.

The ‘Edge of Glory’ singer is currently in the midst of her ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour, but she managed to notice that Justin, 18, is quickly creeping up on her after reaching 33 million Twitter followers.

To be exact, Gaga is leading the way with 33,110, 491 followers at the time of press, but ‘Boyfriend’ singer Justin isn’t too far behind with 33,046,091 fans following his every move.

In rather a sweet message, Gaga tweeted Justin yesterday: “So proud of @justinbieber and all the Beliebers! I’m only happy to see your fans growing in size, you all deserve it! Monsters support you!”

Biebs is yet to reply but he is most likely caught up in his own ‘Believe’ tour, which kickstarted again last week after a break for Christmas.

Meanwhile, it’s been a rollercoaster week for Gaga following her controversial performance in Vancouver where she bared her bum after splitting her latex trousers while also walking around stage toting a bra with two rifles attached.

Her shocking stunt attracted the attention of anti-gun organisations who were furious with the singer for glamourising rifles just weeks after the Sandy Hook shooting.
