Lady Gaga First Artist with One Billion Online Video Views

Video analytics company Visible Measures — the one we work with to put out our monthly top 10 webisodes chart — curates a list of video called the “100 Million Club.” It includes all the web videos that have exceeded 100 million views. Lady Gaga has long been a staple of the chart, but now she’s essentially in a club all her own: She’s the first franchise to reach one billion views.

Gaga’s music videos hold three spots in the 65-video 100 Million Club — one for “Poker Face” (374,606,128), one for “Just Dance” (272,941,674) and one for “Bad Romance” (360,020,327). Add them up and you get just over one billion views. She won’t occupy the club alone for long, though; the Twilight saga is close behind with 980 million and Soulja Boy is at 860 million.

Gaga is primarily a hit on Vevo and YouTube; 25% of Vevo’s visitors only have eyes for her. The pop star has attracted Internet attention elsewhere, too. A Facebook group of more than 100,000 people initiated National Lady Gaga Day about a month ago, and her latest Internet hit is her “Telephone” music video with Beyoncé.

The point is, you can’t escape Gaga on the Internet. She’s everywhere right now. We welcome speculation as to exactly why the web loves her so, so let us know in the comments if you have any ideas.

In the meantime, here are Gaga’s three 100 Million Club hits.

It’s not the first time the rigorous demands of her tour have gotten to her. She had to postpone a concert in Indiana after passing out backstage

Lady Gaga is known for her intense performances and her latest in New Zealand left her struggling to finish.  At the end of her concert in Auckland, Gaga almost passed out on stage during ‘Bad Romance.’  Although she continued to sing while sitting down and at times lying on her back, the 23-year-old looked increasingly tired and sluggish as the song went on.

World Premiere: Adidas Originals Star Wars Video

Sure, we’re used to dudes like Kobe or LeBron or MJ getting their own sneaker, but isn’t it about time you had some Air Skywalkers? Adidas thinks so, which is why they are teaming up with the Star Wars franchise to bring you an exclusive line of sneakers and apparal from a galaxy far, far away (more on the actual products can be found here).

To help promote this blockbuster team-up, Adidas Originals has recruited a staggering list of Star Wars fans for a once-in-a-lifetime music video. And we’re not talking “Star Wars Kid” here – No, no, this Force is strong with this line-up: Snoop Dogg, David Beckham, Daft Punk, DJ Neil Armstrong, and Calle 13. Even better, we have the video before anyone else. Adidas is launching this campaign officially tomorrow – but before the rest of the world gets to groove to this remix of John Williams’ finest hour, you can check it out right now:
