Will Gaga or President Obama have the most fans first?

There's a new race in town and it isn't for political office.

President Obama's Facebook page is running neck and neck with Lady Gaga's to become the first page (belonging to a living person) to reach 10 million fans.

Both have topped nine million so far and as of this writing are within 30,000 fans of each other. Surprisingly, Vin Diesel is close to nine million. The actor's popularity has been attributed to his frequent and very personal posts, something people don't necessarily expect from a celebrity.

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that the top celebrity page belongs to Michael Jackson with more than 13 million fans. Friday, June 25th marks the one year anniversary of his death.

But back to the living front runners: Who do you think will top 10 million fans first? Will it be the Lady or the leader of the free world?

Check out the full story here.

    hahaha forget about them, Vin Diesel, does his page himself and interacts with his fan personally, no body else manages his page, He does Live Stream for his fans <3 .... Check Vin Diesel Out http://www.facebook.com/VinDiesel 🙂

    If Gaga has more fans than Obama, that would be extremely sad. It would also be sad if she ends up with more than MJ.

    I'd really love to think that our current President of the United States of America would be of most interest but seeing where this world is going- to my disappointment my guess hasta be Lady Gaga
