Rihanna has finally become a member of a prestigious YouTube club. The pop diva is the fourth artist to rack up a whopping one billion views on the video streaming site, putting her in the same ranks as Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Eminem.

The statistics, tracked by social media analyzer Famecount.com, include the views for the smash ‘Love the Way You Lie’ with Eminem, who crossed the billion views mark last week. While the song appeared on the Detroit rapper’s 2010 release ‘Recovery,’ the 300 million views are counted towards Rihanna’s overall YouTube views, helping to propel her past the one billion threshold.

Additionally, Rihanna is making moves over on Facebook, where she has almost 26 million fans. The outpouring of support on the social networking site puts her ahead of Justin Bieber in fans, though ranks her in fourth most popular celebrity on Facebook behind Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga and Eminem.

The YouTube accomplishment is yet another milestone in the Barbadian singer’s career. Since the release of her debut ‘Music of the Sun’ in 2005, Ri has sold more than 25 million albums and 45 million singles worldwide and been awarded numerous accolades. Most recently, she was honored with the Grammy for Best Dance Recording for ‘Only Girl (In the World),’ as well as the BRIT Award for Best International Female Solo Artist. Rihanna embarks on a tour in support of her fifth album, ‘Loud,’ beginning June 6 in Baltimore, Md.
