It seems Katy Perry and Justin Bieber are similar in more ways than one.

The 'Prism' hit maker was recently crowned the most followed person on twitter after surpassing the 50 million mark on February 1st (2014).

Statistics released by the social media site, at the end of last year, show Perry gained more twitter followers in 2013 than any other celebrity.

For quite some time the 28 year-old has battled Justin Bieber for the title and when taking over the 'Baby' singer back in November, she never looked back.

Bieber is now being followed by an impressive 49.4 million fans, and coming in 3rd place is Lady Gaga, who was previously No.1 for two years, with 41 million followers.

Perry acknowledged the milestone in a tweet which read, "What a raging Friday night! Made a sandwich. Watched The Business of Being Born. Hung out with a cat. #imagrownwomanicandowhateveriwant."

Adding, "Oh yeah AND we grew to 50 million Katycats! Eh, regular day at the office."

So how did she celebrate?

According to TMZ, after Sunday's Super Bowl game, Perry along with her boyfriend John Meyer, stopped off at a strip club and spent thousands on the exotic dancers.

The gossip site claims the couple visited Spearmint Rhino in Santa Barbara around 11pm on Sunday night and tipped the strippers very generously by splashing out on private dances and even took a photo with the employees.

Perry has more in common with Justin Bieber rather than just millions of twitter followers, the 19 year-old recently blew $75K when visiting Miami's King of Diamonds strip club on January 20th.

Is this a case of anything Bieber can do Perry can do better?
