Katy Perry

Because this is apparently a thing that people care about, Katy Perry has surpassed Justin Bieber as the most followed person on Twitter. Aaaaaaaaaaand cue the death threats from Beliebers who have no clear concept of reality, because how dare you be more popular than the thing they like? That makes it okay for them to threaten your life! Gossip Cop reports …

The “Roar” singer currently has 46,556,467 followers, while The Biebs is at 46,523,388. (Of course, those numbers have already changed.) Lady Gaga is the only other celebrity to top the 40 million mark, with President Obama hot on her heels at 39 million.

Well, I think a big part of this might be the fact that Katy has a new album out, while Justin tried sneaking out of a brothel under a bed sheet. Seriously, you can only tank your reputation for so long before people start checking out. Or they’ll just double down even harder, distancing themselves even further from reality in order to keep their fantasy crush alive. “We’ll be together someday, I just know it! All I have to do is dig further down into delusion. You’ll see! You’ll all see!”
