Selena Gomez Bumps Justin Bieber From #1 Spot On Billboard's Social 50!

Thu, July 7, 2011 3:55pm EDT by 23 Comments

Do you think Justin Bieber is upset and jealous Selena Gomez beat him this week — or is he supportive of his girlfriend’s success?

Selena Gomez‘s star is climbing higher than the king of pop culture’s himself — her very own boyfriend, Justin Bieber! Thanks to her new album, movie and appearances around the globe, the 18-year-old starlet ousted the Biebs from the number one spot on Billboard’s Social 50 list this week, putting him in second place. Can you believe it?!

According to Billboard, “The Social 50 ranks the most active artists on the world’s leading social networking sites — YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and iLike — using a formula blending weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with weekly artist page views and weekly song plays.”

Ms. Gomez jumped from five to one for a lot of reasons. First, her third album, When the Sun Goes Down, with her band The Scene, dropped June 28 to fantastic reviews. Plus, her music video for “Love You Like A Love Song” has gotten nearly 12 million hits on YouTube in only two weeks!

Outside of the music front, Selena has also had mass success with her acting career, thanks to her romantic comedy, Monte Carlo, which hit theaters July 1. Not only that, the Disney queen’s endearing moment with her crush, Shia LaBeouf, went viral on YouTube last week as well.

All in all, July is shaping up to be a really fantastic month for Selena — she has a birthday coming up, she’s madly in love for the first time and her career has skyrocketed.

Do YOU think Justin is thrilled for her success, or does he feel competitive? He’s been so used to being number one for awhile, it must be hard to have his best friend surpass him on some level! Sound off below!

Have you noticed her career has sky rocketed ever since she got with Justin? I’m not jello because I know I’ll never be with him, and I’m not saying I can sing, but Selena’s music career is autotune. She can’t sing live, and she should stick to acting. And for those beach photos, and people saying they’re “teens having fun”? Yeah I don’t know anyone who goes to a beach to makeout then leave.

Hahaha you people sometimes can be hilarious. I don’t know where you’re getting your information from but I do know you’re making most of it up. Why don’t people get your facts right and listen to the real people who are in the entertainment business? Everything you commented are just assumptions from your personal point of view. Do your research first before making a fool out of yourself.

He’s supportative, so he’ll be okay. Probably really happy for her. Also, they could tease eachother about this soon. It’ll go back and forth :)

I don’t know how people can argue this is because of Bieber. If it were all about the Biebs, he’d still be #1. Face it, people are interested in Selena. Some people dicovered who she is through Bieber, but she maintained the interest. She has star quality and people like her.

What a fake, two faced person she is. She says she wants to be taken for her own talent and not known for her who she is dating and yet certainly doesn’t mind reaping the rewards and continuing to play the same game.

She has no talent singing wise, she is only there because of her bf Justin and her use of Shia too! She just uses people to get where she is. Ugghh! Can’t stand her.

Selena DESERVES it, and everything that has & is coming to her.
Who knows, the kid has been awfully jealous & competitive in his behavior in the past and his whole persona is icky as well as being the cocky purple screened kid naming that ridiculous phrase SWAG the whole time to every sentence he ends with, soooo…
Whatever though, who cares what the biebs thinks?
I sure don’t.
