Friday 27 May 2011
Colombian-born singer Shakira has become the latest recording artist to accumulate over 30 million friends on Facebook.
The singer passed the 30 million mark on May 26 and in a show of gratitude uploaded a video on Facebook thanking her fans for making her one of only a handful of musicians to gain over 30 million friends on the social networking site.
Over the week ending May 23, Shakira attracted attention when she pushed talk show host Oprah out of tenth place on Twitter's "top ten most followed" charts.
American rapper Eminem became the first person to hit the 30 million friend mark on March 10; currently the rapper has more Facebook friends (37,279,306) than any other person, living or dead.
As of May 27 other musicians with over 30 million friends include Lady Gaga (35,451,406), Rihanna (34,269,822) and Michael Jackson (33,651,096).
