(Relaxnews) – Pop star Shakira remains at the top of Starcount’s global social media chart, and British actress Emma Watson joins the list for the week of May 26 through June 1.

Shakira has dominated social media in recent weeks and can attribute her standing this week to Facebook activity — she got 554,310 likes and was talked about by 2.2 million people — as well as to the more than 78 million YouTube views she pulled in.

The singer announced on May 30 that her video for the World Cup song “La La La (Brazil 2014)” had earned 50 million views in a week, and on the same day she posted a Spanish-language version of the track.

Emma Watson is a surprise entry in the Starcount chart this week, joining the mainstays of the top ten. The actress was talked about by an impressive 3.3 million people on Facebook and earned 766,967 likes, while over on Twitter her follower count increased by 159,893 and she got 801,634 retweets.

Why the buzz? The former “Harry Potter” actress graduated from Brown University last week, posting a selfie on both networks in which she can be seen wearing her cap and gown.
