(Newser) – Lady Gaga's eye-popping music video for Telephone has catapulted her into the record books by making her the first artist in history to snare over a billion video internet hits. Previous videos for Poker Face, Bad Romance and Just Dance each scored some 300 million hits alone. Most of the Gaga hits are on YouTube and Vevo. Competition is snapping at the queen's heels, though, with the Twilight saga boasting 980 million hits and Soulija Boy at 860 million.
