Katy Perry is Twitter queen

Steals Justin Bieber’s crown

Former ELLE cover star Katy Perry has stormed to the top of the Twitter charts, stealing Justin Bieber’s crown.

The Roar star has just hit 46.5 million followers, making her the most popular on the social network – a position Bieber enjoyed for nine months.

The reason behind Katy’s soaring popularity? It's being attributed to the buzz surrounding her new album, Prism.

Katy should not rest on her laurels, though – Beliebers are working furiously to close the gap. At last check, Bieber was just a few thousand behind the pop princess. Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters, however, have work to do – the star is currently at just over 40.4 million followers.


Aside from a certain President Obama, who boasts just over 39 million followers, Twitter’s top five is dominated by musicians – Taylor Swift edging into fifth place with her 36 million followers.
